That's The Way To Do It!

A dog walker is set to win up to £100,000 damages after he was badly injured wrestling a nine-stone Rottweiler that snatched up a “Chihuahua-sized” pet in its jaws.
Peter Viner, 47, intervened when he heard screams and saw the tiny dog dangling limply from the mouth of the bigger animal near Bethlem Royal Hospital in Beckenham.
I never thought I'd say this, but.... 'Go on, you personal injury lawyers! Sic 'em'.
Mr Viner sued Buddy’s owner, Christine Glover, of Beckenham, and has now been awarded damages at Central London county court.
I wonder how much he'll get? Most chavs don't have much worth taking them to court for.
She claimed Mr Viner brought trouble on himself by grappling with the Rottweiler.
However, Judge Heather Baucher found she had been in “a state of abject panic” during the incident in February 2012 because she had let her dog off his lead and could not control him.
A judge with a goodly amount of common sense, too! Wonders will never cease.

As you observe Julia, wonders never cease. Hihj time more injured parties traveled the same road. Good on this person for taking action, there is hope yet!

2012 and it is JUST in court?

I hope she gets back interest on the sum.

More people need to do this. But I suspect it's only because she has assets that an ambulance-chaser took it on at all.

"2012 and it is JUST in court?"

They weren't kidding about the speed of those wheels of justice.
