A deeper understanding of your animal accident claim
‘A valid animal claim may well be abandoned because some lawyers will say the accident is “just one of those things”‘
If you have been injured by an animal and want to make a compensation claim, you may come up against a number of obstacles. The law is complex, and many lawyers brush off animal accidents as ‘just one of those things.’ But not us.
You’re in safe hands
Before making a claim, you want to know that your legal representative understands your case inside out. At Royds Withy King, we are nationally renowned for our work in animal injury claims.
Many Royds Withy King clients make successful claims for compensation and it is often the case that there is no-one to blame. It is often critical to examine the behaviour of the animal rather than their owner.
If you’re a keen horse rider, you will know that a horse can spook, kick, rear or bolt whenever it feels in any danger. And if you work with horses, you may well pick up an injury due to your working environment. If your injury is serious, you’ll want medical help to get you back on your feet, as well as protection for your earnings on top of any PRIS or RIABS payments that may be available to you. At Royds Withy King, we have extremely close links with the equine community and understand the issues you face. We will help you make a claim speedily and effectively.
There are over eight million dogs in the UK, and every year thousands of people suffer from injuries caused by dogs. Every dog owner is responsible for making sure their dog doesn’t harm anyone else. To assess your claim, the Courts will look at the injury and whether it could have been foreseen or prevented. You may also find that the owner is legally responsible for paying compensation for injuries and property damage, even if they are not to blame at all.
Cow accident claims
From cars hitting cows that have escaped from a field, to walkers being trampled by cows, many people are injured by cows every year. The farmer may not be to blame, but you may still be able to make a claim as the law requires insurers to pay compensation. We can help you assess the merits of your claim and work towards a speedy conclusion for you.
