A woman who was mauled by a dog while at work in Lincoln has been awarded £11,500.
Ruth Henderson suffered multiple injuries including a fractured neck, broken hand, and permanent scars on her left thigh.
It happened when the 68-year-old was carrying out a market research survey at a house in Tower Avenue on February 23, 2010.Hurrah! It’s about time the irresponsible owners of dangerous dogs faced massive bills. This, along with the news that a dog owner who wouldn’t admit fault for his dog biting a postman is having to fork out an eye-watering sum of money, is very welcome news.
Oh. Wait a minute…
Employers IPSOS Mori were ordered by Northampton County Court to pay Ms Anderson £11,500.Her…employers?!? Just how were they at fault?
Jayne Campbell, personal injury lawyer at Slater and Gordon, said: “Ruth was the victim of a terrifying dog attack which resulted in serious injuries to her hand as well as severe emotional trauma.
“This injury may have been avoided if her employers had given her the correct training to deal with the situation.”*speechless*
