The countryside may seem idyllic, but accidents can happen in peaceful, tranquil surroundings. You may have gone to Jackson Bridge on holiday, as it is Last of the Summer Wine country, but if you are not used to country living there could be potential accidents waiting to happen.
Just before you came across this article, you could have been running a finger down the list accident solicitor in Jackson Bridge in the local telephone directory, or you may not have found such a list. You might then have gone online to find an accident solicitor in Jackson Bridge. Again, you may have been unlucky.
Perhaps you were involved in an accident with a farm animal.
Accidents involving farm animals
Many people believe cattle are docile creatures, but acting as a herd they can be very dangerous. You may recall reading about a man being killed by a herd of cattle in Wiltshire in May 2013. He was trampled to death while walking his dog on holiday.
In other accidents involving cattle, lungs have been punctured and bones broken. One of the problems is that there are public rights of way across farmland and often there are cattle or sheep in these areas. Cows are heavy animals and can crush you against a wall or crush your foot quite easily, so you should exercise all due care when you are in close proximity to such animals. Pigs, sheep, cows and farmed deer which escape from their enclosures have also been responsible for accidents on the road.
If you visit a farm park, you should be protected from the livestock at all times, and it would be wise for pregnant women to stay away from sheep during lambing time as they and their unborn child could contract a disease from these animals.
