Road traffic accidents involving farm animals
When driving along country roads, it is not unknown for motorists to collide with farm animals which have strayed from their field. If you have an accident with a pig, cow, sheep or deer that is a farm animal, you may be able to prove that the farmer whose animal you hit was negligent. If the animal escaped through a broken fence, for example, then you may be able to make a claim against the farmer for any injuries you suffered and for any damage done to your personal property. However, you cannot claim compensation if you had an accident involving a wild animal.
If you injure an animal you should not try to move it, as it could become aggressive and cause you an injury. Call the police, explain what has happened and stay at the scene of the accident. Put hazard signs up to alert other drivers to the possible danger. The police will notify the farmer and a vet. If there were any witnesses to your accident, ask for their names and contact details, as these will help to support your claim.
