Livestock is known to be one of the potential hazards that can exist on a farm. Farms may have pigs, cows and numerous other animals that need to be fed and kept in secure areas. They should also be managed in the proper manner so no farm workers are in danger of being hurt by one of the animals. This is particularly the case when it comes to cows, since they are exceptionally heavy and can potentially do some serious damage if one were to attack someone.
Livestock injury compensation has been paid out on some occasions where people have been injured by livestock on a farm. This may occur if a farm worker has not been kept safe by their employer and has been injured as a result. It may also happen to someone who has a right of way to pass through a farm, and has been injured despite having done nothing wrong.
Could you make a claim?
Every case is different. It is very important to bear this in mind. It also points to the importance of seeking the advice of a professional injury compensation lawyer. They have the experience required to be able to look into what happened to you and to decide whether there is enough evidence to make a compensation claim.
Some of the injuries caused in a livestock-related accident can be severe. Indeed, some people have suffered life-threatening and life-changing injuries as the result of an accident of this nature. While most people will never have to go through such an experience, it is easy to imagine the mental and psychological damage that could be done, quite aside from the physical damage. This can also be taken into account when determining the amount of livestock injury compensation that might be made.
