Banham in Norfolk is home to the Banham Zoo, which began as a small enterprise in 1968. Over the years it grew and is now home to a number of both indigenous and exotic animals, birds and reptiles. If one or more of the larger (or more deadly) animals ever escaped, it could cause havoc in this village. Imagine walking down the street and finding a Siberian tiger in your path; would you be able to affect nonchalance and keep on walking towards it slowly? Or would you panic, turn your back and run? If you ran, the animal might consider you prey worth chasing and it could do you some considerable harm. There probably aren’t any solicitors Banham-based who could take on a personal injury compensation claim if you were injured in this way, or indeed, if you died from the fatal injuries the large cat inflicted on you, they may be unable to help your spouse, partner or child make a claim on your behalf. However, we at Accident Advice Helpline are only a freephone call away, and as we work with a team of expert injury solicitors, based all over the country, we could probably put you in touch with one of our specialists who works on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
Why else might I need solicitors in Banham?
You may require personal injury solicitors in Banham, or others based somewhere else in the UK if you have been injured in any type of accident that you can prove was not your fault. You may also be seeking the services of solicitors in Banham, for example, if you have been diagnosed with an illness and you can prove this was caused by another person’s negligence.
Accidents and injuries involving animals
If you have an accident with an animal that is owned and you are injured, it may be possible to file a personal injury compensation claim against the animal’s owner. However, if the animal was a wild one, there would be no one against whom you could file a claim for compensation.
If, for example you are bitten by a dog, and you did nothing to provoke it, you may be able to file a claim against its owner. If you were walking through a field of cows and they trampled over you, it may be possible to file a claim against the farmer who owns them.
