Hurt in car collisions in South Lakeland


South Lakeland is a local government district based in Kendal, Cumbria, in the Lake District National Park. In summer the area is full of tourists and it is at this time that road traffic accidents in South Lakeland occur most often, although they do occur all year round, of course. However, you can always take to one of the lakes, perhaps Lake Windermere, and go canoeing or sailing and so get off the roads. Kendal, of course, is home to the famous Kendal Mint Cake, a popular source of energy for walkers, hikers and mountaineers. The town grew wealthy because of the wool trade and has an ancient charter allowing it to hold markets. Nowadays, there are more cars than sheep in the streets of Kendal, although a flock took to the street in August 2014 in order to recreate a photograph from 61 years before. The original photograph, called Kendal Rush Hour was taken by Joseph Hardman in 1953, and volunteers helped to recreate the new replica photograph.

Hurt in car collisions in South Lakeland

What would happen if you were H=hurt in car collisions in South Lakeland that involved one or more sheep? If you were driving along a country road and suddenly, as you rounded a bend you saw a flock of sheep in the road, you may not be able to prevent hitting one or more of them. Perhaps there was only one sheep involved, although as they are gregarious creatures, this is unlikely. If you were injured in one of these road traffic accidents in South Lakeland, you might be able to make a claim for injuries and damage to personal property against the farmer who owned the sheep.

If you had one of these types of road traffic accidents you should inform the police and wait for them to arrive. They will notify a vet and the farmer who is responsible for the animals being in the road.

Farmers have a legal duty to keep their animals in enclosures so that these types of accident do not occur. They must repair fences and hedges so that animals can’t escape. However sometimes a farmer is negligent in his or her duties and so, if negligence can be proven then you may be able to make a claim for damages against the farmer with the help of an experienced personal injury solicitor.
