    Accident solicitor in Isle of Jura

    Have you sustained an injury in a recent accident that wasn’t your fault? If you’re looking for an accident solicitor in Isle of Jura to help you make a claim for personal injury compensation, look no further than Accident Advice Helpline.

    Did you know that there are around 5,000 deer on the Isle of Jura and approximately 200 people? The population rises during peak holiday season of course, but even so, that’s a lot of deer running around an island. You may have had a road accident because you have collided with a deer, or have hit another car in an attempt to avoid a deer on the road. If so you probably think you should call an accident solicitor in Isle of Jura. You can look up an accident solicitor in Isle of Jura online, but you may or may not find one who is a specialist in handling personal injury compensation claims for an injury involving an accident with an animal.

    Road accidents involving deer

    The BBC reported on 17th October 2011 that statistics from the Deer Initiative showed that deer “could be responsible for as many as 74,000 car accidents in the UK each year.” Other official estimates claim that accidents with deer account for 3,000 accidents a year. Whichever estimate is true, deer account for a number of accidents on Britain’s roads.

    The deer population doubled in the decade between 2001 and 2011, and is now estimated to be at 2 million throughout the UK. We have populations of red, fallow, sika, muntjac other deer and accidents with these creatures increase in number during the autumn months of October and November, the deer mating season. They are active at dawn and dusk, when they feel safe enough to feed. During the rest of the day, they tend to hide from people.

    The Highways Agency has put up warning signs and fences at places with a high deer population in an attempt to alert drivers to the dangers of deer. Estimates show that deer are responsible for £10 million worth of damage each year and it seems they cause a personal injury to 20 people a year.

    You can claim compensation if, for example, the deer are farmed and have escaped from an enclosure with inadequate fencing, and it can be proved that the accident was caused by the negligence of the deer’s owner.

    If a car swerved to avoid a deer in the road and collided with another car, then the driver not responsible for the accident may be able to claim compensation from the driver who swerved into their car.
