There must be very few of us who take a trip to a safari park expecting to have an accident, but if these could be predicted then accidents would not happen in the first place, and you would not find yourself asking, ‘can I claim for an injury at a safari park?’ You may ask the question because as the area is a public place, it may not be obvious who, if anyone, is to blame for the accident and resultant injury. But if the accident was caused by negligence and could therefore, have been prevented, then you may have a legitimate reason to make an injury claim.
The safari park owners and managers have a duty of care towards the people who enter their premises. They must ensure that the safari park is a safe and protected place for their visitors as well as for the animals and the staff who work there.
What types of injury can be considered eligible to make a claim?
Almost any type of injury that has been sustained at a safari park and that was caused by negligence on the part of the safari owners and managers may provide grounds for a claim. These could include slips and falls on uneven ground that bears no signage or has not been barricaded off to prevent access, or vehicular crashes and knocks into safari park-owned equipment or other vehicles caused by external elements, such as inappropriately placed objects or reckless driving.
