Being attacked by an animal is everyone’s worst nightmare. We recently acted for a client who was entering his home when he was viciously attacked by a dog. To make matters worse, it was a ferocious police dog that was on the search for a burglar. The dog continued to bite our client despite him falling to the ground in pain. The ordeal lasted almost half an hour until, eventually, police officers managed to pull the dog off using rope. At this point, our client was heavily bleeding.
He was rushed to hospital in an ambulance with a critical injury to his leg. He underwent numerous operations and remained an inpatient for a period of time. He suffered flashbacks and nightmares thinking about his ordeal and worrying about his children who had witnessed everything.
He was unable to return to his job as he could no longer stand on his leg. The pain was immense and he underwent an extensive course of physiotherapy. He subsequently had to change jobs due to his injuries, which resulted in him earning significantly less. As the breadwinner in his family this had a detrimental effect on his home life.
Taking on an organisation such as the Police can be a daunting task, but it is not one that we were afraid of at Nayyars. Our Team has been handling personal injury cases for over 20 years and has the technical expertise required to win these cases. We issued Court Proceedings against Greater Manchester Police who, upon presentation of the case, admitted negligence.
We built a strong and undisputable case and shortly before trial the Police made a significant financial offer which our client accepted.
Our client received enough money to rebuild his life after this dreadful attack.
