Injury lawyers in North Bovey
You may also be trying to locate injury lawyers in North Bovey or ones based anywhere else in the UK if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused because of another person’s negligence. You have three years from the date you were first diagnosed with the illness in which to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Accidents involving animals
If you have an accident with a wild animal, such as a Dartmoor pony, it is unlikely that you can make a personal injury claim as these animals are not owned. However, if the animal you had an accident with is a domesticated one, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against its owner. For example, if you are driving along a country lane and hit a cow or sheep, then you may be able to prove that the farmer had been negligent because he or she had not kept the animal’s enclosure secure. If fences and hedgerows are not well-maintained, the farmer could be seen to be negligent in the care of the animals he or she owns.
You should call the police and not attempt to move an injured animal as they may be alive and very aggressive. Place hazard warning signs around your vehicle to warn other drivers that there has been an accident. The police will contact a vet or the local animal rescue services so that the animal can be safely removed.
If you are bitten by a dog, whether a stray or one with its owner, you may also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. You should inform the police of the attack and seek medical treatment for your injuries. The police need to be informed, as if a dog attacks once, it is likely that it will do so again.
