Does a dog attack compensation claim only apply to certain types of dogs?
Some breeds of dogs (the Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino and the Fila Braziliero) are listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. This means that there are strict requirements for owning them, they should be muzzled, tattooed, micro chipped and insured.
Compensation will be payable by the owners of these dogs even if they have never shown any history of aggression.
However, even if the dog isn’t listed as a dangerous dog you can still make a dog attack compensation claim if you are the innocent victim of a dog attack.
