Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

The interesting thing is that this consultation does not just relate to specific breeds, i.e. dangerous breeds, but to all dogs that deemed to be out of control.

I know there are always two sides to a story and I, myself, am a lover of man's best friend.  But I also act for a client who was recently injured as a result of a dog slipping its lead and attacking her own dog.  She got in the way.  The dog in question had a history.

Dogs are dogs.  They are animals.  But just like we know the character of our children, we also know the character of our animals.  We can all enjoy our pets, but it is up to us to be responsible for their behaviour. 

I am not sure that a jail sentence is the appropriate penalty, but then again, perhaps it will make the minority of irresponsible owners think twice.
