Have you looked for legal representation in Knighton after being hurt in an accident?
You may have visited Knighton for the annual show and carnival, or just used it as a base to explore the Welsh Marches region and Offa’s Dyke. If you were lucky you may have seen badgers along the country lanes at night and the deer in Kingsley Wood. There are also otters in the River Teme. If you are in the area and have been involved in an accident which you can prove was not your fault, then you may be looking for legal representation in Knighton. You generally have three years in which to claim for injuries sustained in an accident in which you were an innocent victim.
Accessing legal representation in Knighton
If you’ve been hurt or have become unwell because of someone else’s actions, you should certainly consider making a compensation claim against them. Although they may not have intended to harm you, they are still responsible for your suffering. This means that they should be held liable for their actions.
Accidents involving animals
If you swerve to avoid a domestic animal on the road, your vehicle may well crash into a tree, fence or another obstacle. If the animal belongs to someone, then you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against that person.
In the rutting season, deer frequently cause road traffic accidents but you cannot normally claim compensation if you were involved in an accident with a wild animal.
On the other hand, if a herd of farmed deer escaped from an enclosure, you could file a personal injury compensation claim against their owner.
If you are unsure about whether the deer was farmed or wild, get in touch with us at Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal advice about such an accident, or, indeed about any potential personal injury compensation claim you might have.
A farmer has a duty to ensure the safety of the public, as well as his or her animals. Farmers need to have secure enclosures for their animals and if these are breached, then the farmer may have been negligent in maintaining fences, hedges and so on.
