    The dangers of owning livestock


    There are many dangers attached to owning livestock. Though livestock animals are widely regarded as domesticated, they still pose a risk to people who work with them. People who work with bulls and cows can face significant injuries thanks to the sheer bulk of these animals. If you have been hurt by livestock due to an employer or farm owner’s negligence or recklessness, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Read on for more information about the dangers of owning livestock or coming into contact with it.

    The dangers of owning livestock

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we do have vast experience when it comes to helping people who have been hurt by livestock. Many workers and members of the public have been hurt after cows and bulls have charged at them. Many public paths cut through farmers’ fields, which heightens the chance of members of the public coming into contact with these animals. Farmers have a responsibility to ensure volatile animals aren’t kept in fields that have footpaths running through them and to place warning signs in relevant areas if necessary.

    Injuries that livestock can cause include crushed feet or rib cages. Livestock can even find their way onto public roads and cause traffic accidents. If your injuries from livestock are significant, you could lose money due to being forced to take time off work, and you can incur a whole host of costs including medical bills, lost earnings, fares for hospital trips and more. People who work with livestock need to be given the relevant training and equipment to do their job safely. If you’ve been hurt because your employer failed to do this, you could take legal action against them. However, you will normally only have three years to make a claim from the date of the accident, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you do have a case.
