Have you been ill after visiting animal enclosures?
If you have been made ill following a visit to an open farm, wildlife park or zoo then you may be wondering what went wrong. You may also be wondering if anything could have been done to prevent your illness. If something could have prevented you from becoming ill then you may be able to claim that someone was to blame for your illness and you may be able to start a compensation claim. An expert solicitor in Fawkham can help with this.
Personal injury solicitor in Fawkham, getting diseases from animals
Animals carry many types of viruses and bacteria – they are found on the animal’s coat (fur or skin) in their intestines and in their manure or droppings. If we ingest (swallow) some of these germs then they can make us very ill indeed even if the animal itself was perfectly healthy!
This means that anyone who runs a centre (like an open farm or zoo) where people come into contact with animals owe a duty of care to their visitors to protect them from infectious diseases. This involves a thorough risk assessment of who could be harmed in any way and then the introduction of measures to minimise the risk of this happening. These measures usually involve
- Making sure that the areas where visitors will be having contact with animals are clearly identified and defined.
- Making sure that the areas where no animal contact is allowed are clearly identified and defined.
- Making sure that areas where visitors will be eating and playing are clearly identified and defined.
- Providing washing facilities that are both adequate and suitable.
If these (and other) measures are carefully introduced and monitored then the risks to visitors will be significantly reduced and the owners/managers are far less likely to be faced with a personal injury claim.
