Accidents on the road happen every day and with the amount of vehicles on the road the percentage of accidents is relative. Even with the practise of driving tests many bad habits can develop as well as other external factors which are beyond the control of the drivers.
Solicitors in Cannock say that other factors can cause accidents and on many occasions they can be claimed on.
Solicitors In Cannock And Animal Accidents
Accidents on the road involving wild animals such as deers are cases which cannot really progress however if the accident involves animals such as cattle, horses or other farm animals a case for compensation may be instigated.
Solicitors in Cannock can make cases against owners for animals involved in the accident and it may even lead to further investigation as to why the animals were on the loose.
After tracing the owner of the animals the proceedings can begin with negotiations with the legal party for the defendant in order to discuss the responsibility of the accident and to come to arrangement as to how much compensation money can be rewarded.
Evidence For Animal Accidents
Having evidence for accidents on the road involving animals can be more tricky in some cases if the animal is quick to move away. If not take the opportunity to take pictures either on a camera or a mobile phone. In particular look for paint swatches or branded numbers in order to assist with the locating of the owner.
If you are unsure as to where the animal has come from your solicitors in Cannock will be able to do the investigating on your behalf. Once the owner has been located the case can proceed.
Having an accident on the road is bad enough but when you have it with an animal it can make you feel like there is no point in making a claim. Many cases can be built on limited information and are often successful. By having pictures of the animal involved your solicitors can make the necessary enquiries and build a good case.
