Risks for pregnant women
If you are a pregnant woman, then you are especially vulnerable to sheep injuries and infections during the lambing season. Between the months of January and April, a pregnant woman can contract Q fever, listeriosis, toxoplasmosis, and chlamydiosis infections from female sheep that may harm them and their unborn child. While these infections are rare, it is recommended that pregnant women avoid contact with sheep during this period. If you were infected during the lambing season and were not warned about the dangers by a third party, then you may have the right to seek compensation.
Livestock animals are more commonly a danger to the general public in open spaces where physical injuries including broken bones and concussions can occur. Sheep do not carry a threat similar to cattle as they are smaller and less boisterous when threatened, but they can still cause personal injuries in specific circumstances. For instance, you may have been trampled by a stray sheep or twisted an ankle attempting to get out of the way of one. If a sheep injured you and you think that someone else was to blame, then Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with the claims process. Call our free 24-hour helpline to find out how to get started.
Making a claim is important if you and your family’s life have been inconvenienced in any way by your injury. For instance, your ability to earn a living and support your family may have been affected as you were forced to take months off work. You will never get the money you are rightfully owed for circumstances like this unless you decide to take action and file a claim for compensation. We have helped thousands across the UK to get their lives back on track, and we are eager to work for you in the same way.
You will need evidence supporting your claim and the amount of losses you have suffered in order for the claim to be successful. This comes in the form of witness accounts, photographs, and details noted down in an accident book if you were at work at the time. The injury must have been the result of someone else’s actions for you to be eligible, and it must have taken place during the last three years. If you think you are eligible to make a claim and would like sheep injury advice tailored to your situation, then call us today on 0800 180 4123.
