If you have children, you’ll probably be familiar with how excited some of them can get when they see an animal such as a cow or a horse. Dogs and cats will be one thing, but creatures that they don’t typically run into on a daily basis will often please kids a lot more than those they’re used to seeing. It will be important to make sure your children understand how dangerous some these animals can be in certain situations though.
A boot in the mouth from a horse or a bite on the thigh from a cow can do a lot of damage. If you or your child were to stray near to an animal and suffer one of these types of injuries after antagonising the beast in question, there might not be much you’ll be able to do in terms of taking action against the animal’s owner. If on the other hand you were injured by an animal as a result of the negligence of its owner, you should consider seeking out some claims advice in Hackney to find out if you might be able to seek a compensation pay-out.
Animal accidents and claims advice in Hackney
Imagine that you were walking along a bridleway with your young children and your pet dog, all of whom are behaving in an exemplary fashion. It’s a lovely day, and you’re enjoying yourself by simply taking in the sunshine and discussing the different types of flowers and foliage you pass by with your kids.
After a little while, you meet some people making their way in the opposite direction to you on horseback. Suddenly, and without any warning at all, one of the horses rears up. As it does so, it whacks you in the face with one of its hooves. Under these circumstances, there will be a chance that you may be able to make a claim for compensation by taking action against the horse’s owner.
