    Accidents on the roads can take on many forms. With many new drivers entering the roads every day the possibilities of having an accident are endless. In addition to the increasing number of vehicles on the roads the dangerous country roads can also add their contribution to the tally of accidents on the road. With sharp corners and multiple bends it can be near impossible to see what is coming from the other direction. So what happens when a large animal gets involved? Solicitors in Morecambe explain that cases involving animals are difficult but not impossible.

    Escaped animals

    Having an accident with a wild animal is hard luck and can unfortunately happen to anyone. When you have an accident involving an animal which has an owner, such as a horse or livestock, there is a chance you may be able to claim for some compensation.

    Solicitors in Morecambe advise that in order for someone to home animals they must provide suitable accommodation for them and have it approved. Adequate fencing and ongoing maintenance must be enforced to prevent animals from escaping. If animals are escaping then there is an issue which could be used within a claim.

    Evidence to give to solicitors in Morecambe

    Aside from the obvious damage to your vehicle, other evidence which can prove highly useful are photographs. Though it’s hardly the first thing you think of after being in an accident, being quick to react and take pictures can make all the difference when it comes to making a successful claim with solicitors in Morecambe.

    Having pictures of the animal involved is very useful for case evidence but more specific photos can help minimise any comebacks from the defence. Animals with owners are often marked with numbers or patches of paint on their coats to signify they are part of the flock or they belong to a certain farm. Snapshots of these markings can make it difficult for the defence to deny the animals are theirs.
