Accidents with animals
If a domestic animal (such as a sheep or cow) is on the road and causes an accident, you may be entitled to make a claim against its owner. Farmers have a duty to keep their animals in secure enclosures so that they cannot stray onto roads. They should regularly check fences and hedges and repair them as necessary; failure to do so can lead to personal injury compensation claims against them because they have been negligent in their legal duty.
The problem with road accidents involving animals, is that you cannot claim for an accident which was caused by a wild animal, because there is no one from whom you could claim compensation.
If you have an accident on the road with an animal, you should inform the police and not attempt to move the animal as they can become hostile and inflict injuries. The police will make a report of the accident after investigating it if necessary, and you will need a copy of the report, along with your medical report if you intend claiming personal injury compensation.
