James McNally features in The Times

Nationally acclaimed dog bite compensation solicitor James McNally has featured in a recent article published in The Times newspaper.

The article highlights the fact that dog bites in Britain have steadily risen in the last 20 years, with most incidents occurring in the home. Citing the work of an academic researcher, the piece suggests that the problem is not primarily caused by aggressive breeds or due to bad training, but is more to do with the our relationships with our dogs, with the fingers being pointed at indulgent owners.

The study also indicates that lockdown may have made matters worse, a point that we have previously made ourselves; see our article Dog injury claims during lockdown.
James McNally told The Times that he has noticed a huge increase in dog attacks in the past three years, and is quoted in the newspaper as saying:
“We get no fewer than five inquiries a day. Large dogs such as huskies and American bulldogs tend to do the most harm. Labradors knock people over; greyhounds chase smaller dogs, and owners lose fingers trying to prise them apart.”
James and his team are currently representing a huge number of people nationwide who have been injured by a dog, in most cases working on a No Win, No Fee basis.
