Ideally, when out for a stroll in the countryside it is always preferable to keep a decent distance between you and any farm animals that you might come close to crossing paths with. Not only could they wind up injuring you in an accident that was not your fault, but you could distress them. Fortunately, in most cases you’ll find that farmers go out of their way to make sure that their animals will not come into too close contact with members of the public, but sometimes this won’t be possible and you and the animals could cross paths.
Many public footpaths cut through farmers’ land. Some of them don’t like this, but there’s not much they can do about it. One of the reasons some farmers object to having members of the public traipsing all over their fields is that it limits what they can do with their resources.
A farmer will have to think about what animals he puts in a field that might have members of the public passing through it. If he doesn’t, the wrong type of animal could end up doing somebody an injury. This could leave the farmer in question facing 100% no-win, no-fee* personal injury action from the injured party and any decent law firm they were to hire to help them claim compensation.
If you see a large bull in a field, you would be well advised to avoid entering it at all costs, even if this means taking a considerable detour to reach your intended destination. However, if you were to be charged and injured by an angry bull while crossing a farmer’s field on an official public footpath, you might well be able to take some form of 100% no-win, no-fee* personal injury action with the help and assistance of a top law firm in East Cambridgeshire, especially if the farmer in question had neglected to put up any warning signs that there was an angry bull in the field that you attempted to cross.
