    Serious injuries in Tonyrefail

    Have you had serious injuries in Tonyrefail?

    Although Tonyrefail is set in beautiful scenery, accidents happen there as well as everywhere else in the UK. If you have sustained serious injuries in Tonyrefail, you might be wondering if you are eligible to claim compensation for them.

    You can claim for any serious injuries in Tonyrefail if you sustained them in an accident that you can prove was not your fault. By extension, you have to also prove that your accident was caused by someone else, and not a wild animal, for example.

    Animals, whether they are livestock or wild, can cause accidents in the road. With wild animals there isn’t really a claim to be made, as they do not have an owner or representative. Yet if the animal is owned, for example a horse, then there is a chance that a claim can be made. All animals which have owners, in most circumstances, have some variety of license, collar or microchip which can be used to trace down the owner.

    For example if a cow strayed onto the road and your vehicle collided with it, it would be possible (at least in theory) to make a claim against its owner. If you have sustained serious injuries in Tonyefail because of a stray farm animal, call us at Accident Advice Helpline for help and advice.

    Can you make a claim?

    Effectively the owner of the animal is the party which can be liable to pay out accident claims to you, as the animal is their responsibility. All owners must legally have a well-prepared, secure area to house their animals in, in order to keep them from straying. However, as many events and escapes have proved, not all enclosures for animals are secure enough, or not close enough to monitor on a daily basis.

    Raising a claim in this scenario can be very difficult but it can be done. As the animals have escaped there must be a damaged fence, or an inadequate enclosure which they can jump over. Photographic evidence of the enclosure they escaped from would be highly beneficial if you wanted to claim against the owner.

    In accident situations involving animals, it is best to get as much detail in to your description of events as possible, including a detailed description of the animal. Anything such as tags on ears or paint marks on their hair, can establish where they came from.
