    Top 3 accidents at a petting zoo


    Do you know what the top 3 accidents at a petting zoo are? Although you may expect the top 3 accidents at a petting zoo to involve contact with animals, most accidents that occur at zoos in the UK occur away from animals. Slips, trips and falls can occur at zoos due to wet surfaces, and you could even be scalded if you are carelessly served a hot drink at the canteen. There is a small chance you will be bitten, but this is generally unlikely thanks to the health and safety measures that are normally put in place.

    Hurt via accidents at a petting zoo

    Zoos are great places to spend days out and allow you to see creatures you’d never be able to meet in your normal day-to-day life away from the facilities. Although there are rare occasions where animals escape from enclosures and injure members of the public, the chances of this occurring are very low. People are more commonly hurt via loose litter, uneven surfaces, hot drinks, moving vehicles and other hazards. You are expected to follow the safety instructions laid out to you by the people in charge of zoos, but injuries can occur even when you do comply with them fully. If you have been hurt at a zoo and feel the blame for the incident lies with the staff or management, we can help.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a great deal of experience when it comes to helping people get compensation for accidents that have happened in public places like zoos. As long as the accident happened in the last three years (or you were a child when the accident occurred and are not yet 21) and wasn’t a result of instructions being ignored, there’s a very good chance we will be able to assist you. If the zoo wrongly deemed an animal to be safe and permitted it to roam free and you were hurt, we may well be able to help you.
