Experienced lawyer in Chester le Street


If you have been injured in an accident involving livestock, then speak to an experienced lawyer in Chester le Street today to find out if you qualify to make a compensation claim.

Compensation claim involving livestock

Although generally regarded as being domesticated, livestock can still be exceptionally dangerous. This is generally due to their size, the large numbers associated within a herd and the fact that, when all is said and done, they are still animals with unpredictable natures.

If you have been involved in an accident with livestock, then there is a good chance you have been significantly injured. Some incidents may even cause fatalities if a stampede is caused.

How injuries can occur

One of the most common cases your experienced lawyer will have worked on when it comes to injuries caused by cattle is where a cow (or bull) has charged a member of the public.

Within the United Kingdom, many public footpaths run through fields and other areas where farmers have rights to keep their cattle. Generally speaking, this co-habitation (even if temporary) does not give rise to any issues. However, occasionally an animal may feel threatened, charge and injure an innocent walker as they go about their daily ramble.

If you have been injured during such an attack, then you might want to seek the legal advice of an Accident Advice Helpline experienced lawyer in Chester le Street.

Your experienced lawyer in Chester le Street will know that there are certain circumstances in which cattle are more likely to feel threatened or anxious, and therefore likely to attack a passer-by; for example, during calving season.

Farmers have a duty of care to members of the public who they know may be accessing the areas where their cattle are kept. If a farmer fails to take this obvious precautionary step then your experienced lawyer in Chester le Street will be able to argue on your behalf that they are responsible for your injury.

Of course, it’s not just members of the public that might be injured by livestock.  Farm workers are also at great risk, but these risks should be mitigated by their employers, who should offer them the proper training to ensure they understand the safe practice methods associated with handling livestock. Personal protection equipment should also be made available where necessary to ensure that if there is an accident, it is not a serious one.
