About animal road accidents

Road traffic accidents can be caused by many different factors and you should always be aware of the risk of animals on the road when driving. Colliding with a smaller animal can be distressing if you’re driving the vehicle, but ultimately unlikely to leave you with any long-term injuries. However, collisions between larger animals and motor vehicles can be more serious; if you are involved in a road accident or crash involving an animal, you could be at risk of severe injuries.

Swerving or stopping short in order to avoid an animal on the road can also have dangerous consequences, and be a cause of injury.
