The economy of North Somerset is mainly based on agriculture, including sheep, which can lead to some unexpected accidents and personal injury compensation claims in North Somerset. There a few accidents more surprising, or potentially more damaging, than having your vehicle strike a runaway sheep as you drive along a country lane.
In these instances, it can hardly be claimed that the sheep was at fault for the accident (although it should have looked both ways), so who is at fault? It is a tough one, as the person who left the gate open may not have anything to do with the farm, and could have been just passing through.
That said, ultimate responsibility has to lie with the farm owner for the security of their property regardless of how expansive it may be. And so, that’s how personal injury compensation claims in North Somerset can arise.
What you do now is up to you, but here at Accident Advice Helpline we highly recommend that you pursue a compensation claim – and we can help you.
Personal injury compensation claims in North Somerset
Accident Advice Helpline was created with the idea of bringing access to justice to as many qualifying people as possible, which is why we fully adopted the idea of the conditional fee agreement (also known as no win no fee*). The agreement meant that no matter their financial situation, accident victims would be represented.
Operating at the national level, we can help you with a claim no matter where or how the accident happened, and no matter where in the UK you live – the way we work also means that you may never have to step foot inside a courtroom either. Ever.
At the scene of the accident, it could help if you are able to take photographs of your car and the animal. If you can take photographs of the open gate or damaged fence, then that would help prove liability too. Even after, you should try and keep safe anything that could help your case, and help determine how much compensation you could be awarded.
