Accidents with farm animals
Sometimes, if you are driving along country lanes, you come across a herd of cows or sheep being herded across the road. However, if you come across a solitary animal in the road, it may be difficult to avoid it. Farmers have a duty to keep animal enclosures well-maintained so that they can’t stray onto the road and cause accidents. If you encounter a stray farm animal and it causes you to have an accident, it may be possible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the farmer that owns it.
However, if a wild animal caused an accident, there would be no one to file a claim against. There has to be a person to sue for damages.
If you are walking along a public footpath on farmland, you should keep any dogs on the lead. You might think that cows are docile animals, but when spooked they can become aggressive. People have been trampled to death by cows. It might be difficult to prove that you did not cause them to act aggressively.
Can I make a claim for my injuries?
You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that someone else was responsible for your accident.
You will need a copy of the police accident report if they were at the scene of the accident. This will prove that you were not to blame for it.
You will also need your medical records to prove that you had medical treatment soon after the accident. Your records will also be used to assess the amount of compensation you may receive for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries.
