a friend recommended me to this site,after hearing my predicament. about a year ago myself and my wife had just got back from walking the dog aprox 3pm. we put him in passage way to eat his food,the passage is about 6ft wide and 10ft long. sealed at both ends with external doors.as we dont have a letter box on our front door,the post woman posted the letter through that door and my dog bit her finger. the door is wood up to letter box then has nine CLEAR glass pannels. the letter box is just a letter flap on outside,no bristles or back flap on inside so no resistance. we brought her in and cleaned and dressed wound and offered to take her to hospital. while treating the wound my wife asked why she had put her fingers throu gh box,she said she was fiddling with letters and not concentrating.which of course is not what she says now,but i beleive to be true.or whilst liffting the flap with 1 hand and posting with other she would have seen dog through class. she needed a couple of stitches in her finger,she says dog pulled letter and her fingers through letter box and bit finger. the union then sent a letter putting a claaim for compensation.i sent pics of door also letter box and pointed out i felt it was her neglect of health and safety she got bitten. they then passed it to there solicitors,it went quiet for months. but now recieved a letter saying they're going to proceed with civil court action for compensation. not sure if insurance covers us and i cant afford lots of solicitors fees. C.A.B said she was on our property the dog was contained it down to her. please help..
