Pryers have successfully recovered £63,147.50 in compensation for a female client’s pain, suffering and psychiatric injuries associated with a dog bite along with losses.
Ms J was attacked by the Defendant’s dog and suffered serious injuries, including a crush injury to the right hand and especially to her right ring finger. Client had developed PTSD as a result of the attack. Before our instruction she had been dealing with matter herself. Ms J came to us on day of limitation which we managed to get extended due to late instruction and fact that liability had been admitted. After reviewing Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Report already obtained, it was identified we needed to get further Reports from a Hand Specialist, a Psychologist and an Occupational Therapist given Ms J’s handicap on the open labour market due to her injuries.
Losses were collated and the matter eventually settled for £63,147.50, Ms J already having received £3,147.50 by way of interim payment.
