£32,000 for woman attacked by a bull
The Rapid Solicitors legal team has secured substantial compensation for Eileen Dawson of Scarborough.
Eileen was helping her sons to round up some bulls on a farm in Yorkshire, when one charged her causing severe knee injuries, leaving her partially disabled for life. The injury required major surgery for a fracture, a skin graft and treatment for infection from slurry. Mrs Dawson said: “We had penned the bulls into their sleeping area and chained the metal gates together to stop them escaping. The bulls were not familiar with the situation and one became very anxious, snapped the gate chain and broke free. It charged me with its head down to knock me out of the way. I have to wear a knee brace, now. But I’m lucky – bulls can easily kill.” Rapid Solicitors won the case at Court. A spokesman said: “It was an unusual case, but one where we knew we were able to prove negligence. Having meticulously prepared our case, our barrister was able to present the facts and the judge found in our Client’s favour.” “As is hoped with all these instances, procedures should now change to protect people should a similar situation arise.”
