Claims can be based on negligence on the part of the pet owner or on vicious actions of the animal which were unprovoked and which are not natural for its breed.

We will investigate your claim to determine whether you have legal grounds for making a claim.

Michael de Broglio Attorneys - Let us help you with your dog bite claim

Michael de Broglio Attorneys handle a number of legal cases, with personal injury claims being one of the most popular amongst our South African clients.

In today’s world of crime, we see a lot of people training their animals, dogs, as security, to protect their homes and land. It is just very unfortunate that often, these animals become the culprit to attacks on innocent victims when the incidents could have been prevented.

Facts you need to know before claiming for a dog bite

Among the individual damage claims we handle, are claims for dog bites.  These cases can be expedited the grounds of carelessness by the owner of the dog or as far as an activity in view of pauperism where regardless of whether the owner of the creature isn't careless, one can prove the dog acted violently against the innocent person.

The onus to demonstrate the case is on the individual who was harmed in the pauperism situation, this onus is at first demonstrated by basically proving that, for instance, you were attacked for reasons unknown.

The dog owner would need to demonstrate that it was the blame of the individual that was bitten and that the dog acted I this manner to protect itself or, for instance since it was teased or provoked.

Dog bite claims

These cases are often based on account of individuals, who are traumatically attacked by dogs, however, evidence can lie against the owner of the animal if the incident could have been stopped or prevented.

In many of these cases, the dogs are trained to be vicious, for protection purposes. To protect and guard, private building, shops, factories, and even homes.

One would, likewise, for instance, have a case against guard dogs or dogs used by either security guards or police in spite of the fact that, as is dependably the case in law, one must go into the actual circumstances of the issue and in such manner, you clearly need to counsel with a lawyer.
