Are you wondering, ‘Can I claim for an injury as a bird keeper?’ If so, you have come to the right place to find out about your rights. Accident Advice Helpline specialises in helping people make claims for accidents caused by others.
How did your accident happen?
You could be able to make a claim for an injury as a bird keeper if it can be conclusively shown that someone else was to blame for your injury and if your accident happened in the last three years. You should not delay coming to us for too long, as this can mean we can no longer help. Waiting for more than three years to raise a claim could also mean that any potential witnesses or supporting evidence is no longer available.
You may have been injured by one or more of the birds in your care after a colleague failed to secure your working area. You may have been relying on someone else to ensure the birdcage or bird transport was safe to use and well maintained. If this did not happen, either because your colleague forgot or did a bad job, your claim for accident compensation is considerably strengthened.
Working for someone else, you may also have been required to work with birds suffering from a dangerous disease or using equipment that was not up to the job. You may even have complained about this to your employer, who may well have been breaking health and safety regulations in demanding your continued work in a particular instance. Tell us about the details of your accident so that we can help you assess if you have a potential accident claim to pursue.
The benefits of claiming a bird keeper accident claim
When you claim accident compensation, you could give your finances a much-needed boost and regain some psychological composure after a difficult time in your life. Your bird keeper accident may have meant that you had to take some time away from work. If you were working freelance, this usually means you instantly lose your income. Even if your employer continued paying you during your absence, such provision typically stops after a short period. A successful accident claim can thus help you while you determine your next steps.
Psychologically, knowing that the party who caused your accident has formally recognised their culpability by paying you compensation can also be a significant boost.
