    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Can you claim if you’re injured in a car after hitting an animal?


    Whether you can claim if you’re injured in a car after hitting an animal depends on the circumstances.

    When you can claim if you’re injured in a car after hitting an animal

    You may be entitled to personal injury compensation if, for example, your animal-related accident was caused by:

    • A stray pet or farm animal that should have been prevented from being on the road
    • A wild animal roaming freely on someone’s property if the owner of this property could have prevented such animals from straying onto public highways by erecting fences, for instance

    You could also be eligible to claim if, for example, you were injured in a car after hitting an animal at a safari park because an animal escaped from an enclosure.

    Other safari park mishaps

    In addition, you could qualify for public liability compensation if you were bitten, gored or otherwise injured by an animal at a safari park. To qualify for compensation, your safari park accident must have:

    • Been caused by someone else
    • Occurred within the last three years
