Farmers have a responsibility to make sure that their livestock poses no risk of doing a member of the public an injury in an accident that was not their fault. This will involve making sure all animals are kept in a secure environment and that the necessary warning signs are put up where an animal might be a threat close to a public footpath that might run through a farmer’s land.
If an individual farmer were to fail in this duty and his actions were to cause somebody to be injured in an accident that was not their fault, there will be a chance that the victim might well be able to make claim for personal injury compensation. If you’ve been injured by an errant farm animal and would like to find out just how much money you might be able to win in the form of a compensation pay-out, check out our personal injury claim calculator in Swansea.
Farm animal accidents and our personal injury claim calculator in Swansea
Maybe you were driving along a quiet country road in your motor car when you were suddenly confronted by a large flock of sheep in the road when you rounded a corner. In an effort to avoid hitting the animals, you take evasive actions. This has the desired effect of ensuring that no sheep are harmed, but unfortunately results in your car ramming into a street light at the side of the road.
It later transpires that a local farmer had failed to secure his sheep in a field, leaving the gate open while his mind was on other things. As this accident would have been the result of the farmer’s negligence, there will be a decent chance that you might be able to make claim for personal injury compensation under these circumstances.
