Injury lawyers in Milnthorpe
You may be searching for injury lawyers in Milnthorpe because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. If you have had an accident in Britain then you generally have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. This is also true if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury lawyers in Milnthorpe, for example, can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence.
You only have two years to claim for injuries sustained in an accident which happened at sea, in the air or at an airport, however. You also only have two years in which to claim for injuries sustained in a crime in England, Wales and Scotland.
Accidents involving animals
If you were driving along a country road and hit an animal then, if it was a wild one, you could not make a claim for injuries because the animal did (or does) not belong to anyone. However if your vehicle hit a farmed animal such as a deer, sheep, cow, pig and so on, then you may be able to prove that the farmer who owned the animal was responsible for the accident. Farmers need to ensure their animals are kept in a secure enclosure, and if a fence or hedge has been breached, then it should have been repaired.
If you farm deer, you will know that they can be dangerous creatures in the rutting season. In November 2013 an elderly farmer died after being attacked by a stag. He had been breeding deer for some years, although his main interest had been sheep farming.
If you hit any animal when driving you should not approach it, as it could be hurt and become aggressive. Call the police from your vehicle and they will inform a vet of the accident. Place hazard warning signs around the scene to warn other drivers that there has been an accident.
