For many of us a trip to a safari park is a chance to see wild animals in their natural habitat and to enjoy ourselves, yet few of us expect to be involved in an accident at one, thereby necessitating a safari park accident claim. For most of us such a scenario may never happen, for the safari park owners and managers take the utmost care to keep us safe and secure, but there are always exceptions and accidents will inevitably occur.
As with all public entertainments and venues, the owners and managers have a duty of care, meaning they are obligated to make the environment as safe as is possible, a difficult task where wild animals are concerned. Any safari park that fails to perform this duty of care is endangering their visitors and laying themselves open to compensation claims and legal suits.
If you have suffered an injury during a trip to a safari park, then you may indeed be eligible to make a claim. Injuries that may be sustained at a safari park include those made by animals, such as bites, either those that fail to break the surface of the skin, or other far more serious bites, as well as bruises and broken bones caused by attacks from animals charging or butting.
Can you make a claim?
If you have suffered an injury while enjoying a trip to a safari park, but are unsure whether you have a valid reason for making a claim, you should contact someone who can let you know. An organisation such as Accident Advice Helpline that has a convenient and completely free to call 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 with access to expert lawyers who are specialists in the field of person injury claims. They can assess the nature of your injury, how it occurred and what treatment you have had to determine whether or not there is a case of negligence on the part of the safari park and whether a claim you make is likely to be successful or not.
Accident Advice Helpline was set up in 2000 to help people who have suffered an injury from an accident that was not their fault receive justice and compensation. They have helped thousands of people in this way and they can help you too. They work on a no win, no fee* basis and will always endeavour to obtain as much compensation for you as possible.
The compensation they help you to receive can prove invaluable in aiding your recovery as it can cover the cost of your treatment, help with travelling costs to and from hospitals and treatment centres and pay for nursing care or home help. Compensation can even go towards babysitting charges should you need to hire someone to look after your children while you are being treated. It can also relieve any financial worries you might have in that it can cover you for loss of earnings if your injury means you are unable to work.
