Consulting a no win no fee Shedfield legal representative for injuries
You can claim injury compensation through a ‘no win, no fee’ Shedfield solicitor if you can be able to prove that there was negligence by someone else that caused any of the following injuries.
- Grazes and abrasions-caused by slips, trips and falls as you run away from the charging livestock.
- Rib injuries-animals are known to attack when they feel endangered due to their temperament. They can hit the victim with hoofs after the victim falls down causing fractured ribs and at times ruptured lungs.
- Cuts or lacerations-caused by barbed wire or vegetation as you run away. The livestock may get agitated for no apparent reason and they may escape from the enclosure if it is not properly fenced. Avoid walking with your dog near livestock because they may attack.
- Dislocations and fractures-when livestock crash you with force. Large cattle can step on you breaking or cracking your bones. Workers who milk cattle should be careful especially when they move in herds because controlling them might become difficult. A sling, firm splint, brace, plaster or fibreglass cast may be applied until the bones show some form of recovery during which rehabilitation starts.
- Dog bites-some farmers keep dogs to help them control herds of cattle. The dog may bite or scratch you.
- Fatality-livestock attacks can become fatal when they cause fatal injuries.
