Stow on the Wold is a market town in the Cotswolds, in Gloucestershire. The 19th century stocks can still be seen on the green and ‘The Royalist’ in the town lays claim to being the oldest inn in England, as its history can be traced back to 947 AD. Henry II granted the town a charter to enable it to hold markets in 1107, and the small alleyways in the town were built in this way so that sheep could be more easily counted than if they were on a wide road. Daniel Defoe wrote that 20,000 sheep were sold in one day in Stow on the Wold. Thankfully you don’t see many sheep in the alleyways any more, and if you did, you may have had a sudden impact from one which resulted in your sustaining personal injury in Stow-on-the-Wold.
Have you suffered personal injury in Stow-on-the-Wold?
If you sustained personal injury in Stow-on-the-Wold because of an accident with a stray sheep, you might be able to claim personal injury compensation from the farmer that owned it. Farmers have a duty to keep their animals under control and failure to do so could be construed as negligence. If you have an injury that you can prove was caused by a stray domestic animal, you may be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim against its owner.
In order to make a personal injury compensation claim you have to be able to prove that any accident that you were injured in was not your fault. You also need to have documented proof of having recieved medical attention.
If within the past three years you have suffered personal injury in Stow-on-the-Wold, you should have been to see a doctor as soon as you could after the accident. Some injuries might appear to be minor, but these can become much worse if not treated straight away. If you failed to have immediate medical treatment and this made your original injury worse, you would not get as much in terms of compensation as if you had sought immediate medical attention.
If you make a personal injury compensation claim, your medical report will be required in order to work out how much you should receive in compensation for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries.
