A great grandmother from Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, is to receive an accident claims payout for the injuries she received after being twice bitten by a neighbour’s dog.
Injuries To Leg
The woman suffered injuries to her calf, which required a skin graft and an eight day stay in hospital, after being bitten by her neighbours Jack Russell terrier. The 83 year old had previously been bitten on the arm by the same dog which also required hospital treatment.
Steps had previously been taken by the dog’s owner to prevent her dog getting into the garden. A laser fence had been installed but on the day in question the garden gate was left open and the dog gained access into Mrs Franklin’s garden.
Woman Traumatised By Accident
The injured woman still remains traumatised by the accident.
Dog To Be Rehoused In Manchester
