Road accidents with animals
In 2012 the Department for Transport reported that there had been a “sharp rise in the number of fatal accidents involving animals, including deer” as reported in the Daily Telegraph, 30th November 2012. A collision with a sheep or a deer can cause damage to a car and you should report all accidents involving animals to the police. If you hit and injure an animal you should not try to move it as it may become aggressive. Instead use hazard signs and lights while you contact the police.
If you have an accident with a wild animal then there is no owner to claim compensation against. If, however, you have an accident with an animal that is a farmed animal or a pet, then you may have a case for a personal injury compensation claim.
If you swerve to avoid an animal in the road and hit another vehicle, then you may be liable for a personal injury compensation claim.
Insurance companies generally pick up the tab for accidents involving animals, as you vehicle insurance should cover such eventualities. However, if you have sustained a personal injury in an accident involving an animal, you should contact an accident solicitor in Isle of Lismore, or one elsewhere in the country for advice.
Animals are the responsibility of their owners and they should be controlled, in the case of a dog, or contained and kept away from roads in the case of farm animals. Any failure on the part of the owner to control the movements of their animals could leave them open to a compensation claim.
