There are believed to be approximately 8 million dogs in the UK. The vast majority of dogs are well-trained and pose no threat. Sadly, there are an increasing number of people suffering injury through no fault of their own as a result of an unprovoked dog attack.

Dangerous Activities by Dog Owners
Whilst the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 restricts the ownership of various breeds of dog such as the Pit Bull Terrier, any dog can cause personal injury if it is poorly trained or not properly controlled in public. Negligent acts on the part of dog owners include:
- Leaving dogs unsupervised in public areas, recreation areas, playgrounds and outside shops
- Failing to warn visitors to the property of the presence of a dog
- Failing to restrain the dog whilst out walking
These are the main reasons why Graham Coffey & Co specialist dog bite solicitors have successfully recovered personal injury compensation for clients.
