Negligent dog owner must pay damages to friend

A woman has been awarded £115,000 damages after breaking her hip and arm when her friend’s Alsatian pulled her off her feet. The woman was injured after her friend passed her the dog’s lead to hold without warning. A judge found that the dog’s owner had been “negligent” and ordered her to pay her friend damages.
