There are some people who believe that if you purchase a ticket to go to the zoo, you are responsible for your own health and safety while you are there, but this is not the case. If you have ever asked the question ‘Can I claim for a zoo accident as a visitor?’ then the answer is most definitely ‘yes’. You are in a visitor attraction that is run by professionals and there are certain health and safety standards that they need to meet. If these are not met, it is not only the visitors that are in danger but the staff as well, and accidents that take place in this type of environment can be very serious.

Why should I make a claim?
Making a claim for any type of accident is important for several reasons. An injury could leave you unable to work and it might be that you only get full sick pay for a short time. Many people are only entitled to the bare minimum of sick pay. Accident compensation is designed to help you to make ends meet when times are difficult like this. You will be compensated for loss of earnings, the injury itself and any additional expenses that are incurred. For example, you may have to pay out for an alternative form of transport if you are not able to drive. You may need physiotherapy or other treatment that leaves you out of pocket. These expenses could be claimed as part of a personal injury claim. Some injuries can be life-changing and it is important to get compensation in order to help you to adapt.
As Accident Advice Helpline works on a no win no fee basis, it can help to give you peace of mind whilst you are recovering from your accident. Accident Advice Helpline was established to help people who had been injured as the result of the neglect of others to get the justice and compensation that they deserve. We will look at your case carefully before we take it on, and determine if you have grounds to make a claim, so that you are never given false hope about your case.
