You won’t find injury solicitors in Lake Ullswater, and would probably have to go to Penrith to find a firm. You may be seeking injury solicitors in Lake Ullswater if you have sustained injuries in an accident which you can prove was not your fault, or because you have an illness which was caused by the negligence of another person.
Injury solicitors in Lake Ullswater
You usually have three years in which to make any personal injury compensation claim for injuries which occurred in an accident in Britain. However, as there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years in which to make a claim, you should contact injury solicitors in Lake Ullswater in order to ascertain exactly how long you have to make your claim. You could also contact us at Accident Advice Helpline for this (and more) information.
Accidents involving animals
If you are walking through farmland with a dog, you should keep it on a lead as it is possible that it could spook a herd of cows. They may seem like docile animals, but because they are heavy they can cause fatal injuries.
If you are bitten by a dog, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against its owner, if they can be traced. You should report the attack to the police and have the wound treated. If the animal was a stray roaming the streets, then you may be able to prove that the local authority was negligent in its duty to pick up strays and take them off the streets. In that case, you could make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority.
If you are involved in any type of accident with a domesticated animal, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against its owner. You may, for example, be bitten by a racehorse at a race course, and if you had done nothing to provoke the horse then you could be eligible to make a claim against its owner.
However, if you have an accident involving a wild animal, it may not be possible to claim personal injury compensation for any injuries you sustained. Check with an experienced injury lawyer, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline.
