Car Accidents Involving Animals and Livestock

A multitude of devastating accidents which happen on the roadways and highways of America entail free roaming livestock from nearby farms. When dairy farmers and ranchers are negligent at maintaining a secured livestock, people traveling on the roads can be severely injured.

And many times, these animals can escape from the crossroads, highways, freeways, and farms to cause collisions with severe injuries. Any individual involved in an automobile accident with livestock is advised to seek immediate healthcare, and employ legal representation for any compensation.

The most crucial automobile accidents to involve cattle typically occur in the evening hours when the skies become dark to make it virtually impossible to see any animal until a collision.

Moreover, many automobile accidents to entail horses typically occur during the daytime hours. Naturally, this can be a challenge in a legal situation due to animals in the daytime are more likely to be noticed. The motorist has a duty to avoid anyone or anything that can cause serious car collision.

Many times, vehicle accidents which entail livestock can result in ranchers and farmers who neglect to maintain properly their structures of fencing along highways and roads. In a number of situations, any act of negligence can hold individuals legally responsible for any financial damage when an individual is killed or injured after striking livestock on the roadway.

Moreover, other individuals besides the farm or ranch owner may be held liable. Naturally, this entails farm hands and ranch hands in charge of handling enclosures of livestock.

Any collision with a horse or cow at high-speeds can cause serious injuries.

A personal injury attorney experienced with automobile accidents that entail livestock can investigate any claim to deem if the animal was permitted to roam around at free will.

If the livestock ran repeatedly around at will, this can be determined.

Automobile accidents are among the leading causes of all injuries. Nearly 6 million automobile accidents are reported in the United States. Among these, approximately 30,000 would be considered fatal.

Nearly 2 million entailed other injuries. They leave behind damage that is quite severe.

Injuries from car accidents can vary from individual to individual, from automobile crash to automobile crash. There are several common ones. Naturally, more specific details for particular cases can be obtained from a physician.


Individuals most often operate a vehicle, or ride in a vehicle with family and friends. Severe automobile crashes typically leave serious emotional scars on individuals who have suffered severe injuries, as well as individuals who were present to witness them.


Treatment and counseling for post traumatic stress disorder, and psychological injuries which are similar, can be fairly common.


If you or any loved one sustained an injury in an automobile accident, immediately speak with an automobile injury attorney. The attorney can make an evaluation of your case, and assist you in understanding if money is owed to you to cover any expenses caused by vehicle injuries.
