    Safari injury compensation claim made by woman gored by elephant

    By David Brown on July 12, 2014

    A lawyer has started proceedings for a compensation claim resulting from serious injuries she suffered while on holiday in Zambia. According to reports she received abdominal injuries when the animal allegedly attacked her while she was on a walking safari organised by a business in the South Luangwa National Park. The safari injury compensation claim is said to amount to more than £300,000, although it has yet to be formally heard and decided upon. The claim covers the injuries suffered by the woman and also covers the psychological effects suffered by her partner, who witnessed the alleged attack take place.

    Could you claim safari injury compensation if you have been injured on holiday?

    Safaris give people the opportunity to see the so-called Big Five animals – the lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and buffalo. These animals are all extremely dangerous but safari tours are generally organised and arranged to enable you to see the animals up close without being in any real danger.

    Every year thousands of people go on these safaris and they enjoy a great time and return home without injury. However, there is always the potential that accidents can happen and if you are unlucky enough to suffer an injury in this way it is wise to remember you have three years in which to bring a claim against those who may be responsible. You must be able to prove that the incident was someone else’s fault and to have evidence as such.
