I was attacked by a wild animal while on someone else’s property. Am I eligible for compensation?
A wild animal attack isn’t usually considered a negligent incident. However, depending on the precise details of the attack, it may become clear that the property owner had a responsibility to keep these animals off of their property and away from guests or visitors. Animals and insects with a known and constant threatening presence on a property may become that property owner’s liability in some situations. However, a legal adviser can better explain the rules in pursuing a lawsuit for specific instances.
If you’ve sustained an injury because of a property owner’s inaction to a known threat, there may be legal action available to help you recover compensation.
