Re: Bailer twine across road to guide cows - I hit it !.. Advice pls

Sorry to hear this, they shouldn't be taking 35% of what you get, they should be adding their costs to the total claim. Remember you must also claim for additional costs, so that taxi journey to work etc., can be included in your claim along with any additional expenses you have due to not having y...

Re: Bailer twine across road to guide cows - I hit it !.. Advice pls

Who else has encountered rope across the road in the dark with no warning... Did you see it and stop with ease your perspective seems one sided as no one expects rope across a road anytime of the day, to say I wasn't in control is unfair. It's not just 300 pound that was a guess, 1 day off work is ...
