One of the biggest pastimes in the UK is now walking and hiking. But when you are out and about, you do not expect to encounter an accident that will cause you to be injured. If you find yourself injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Market Harborough.
What accidents are commonly experienced by walkers and ramblers?
The most common type of accident for walkers is a slip, trip or fall, which generally result in fractures or a few cuts and bruises at worst. However, what if you trip on a country lane as a tractor is passing? The injuries could be horrific. Alternatively, how badly do you think you might be injured if you slip as a car approaches that cannot stop in time?
The majority of people would not expect to be attacked by a cow, but if you are walking through a farmer’s field and the cow feels threatened in any way, they will attack you and can cause nasty injuries. Quite often this happens when they have not long given birth and they are protecting their young. You have to feel for them, but that will not reduce the severity of your injuries.
If the farmer’s field has a public footpath running through it, the farmer should not put the cows where they will feel threatened and attack someone. It is their responsibility to ensure that this does not happen, and they may have to face a personal injury claim when the victim uses a personal injury lawyer in Market Harborough.
