Horse Riding Accident Claims
Horses are majestic and on the whole good natured creatures. However they are an animal and therefore pose a risk due to their unpredictable behaviour. Injuries can be caused by working with or riding on a horse. If somebody has been negligent then you may have a case to claim compensation.
You may have had an accident related to horse riding in the following situations:
Road Traffic Accidents - Road users have a duty to take care when they are passing or approaching horses being ridden or led along public roads. If you and your horse have been injured in a road accident caused by a lack of care from other road users, we could help you to claim compensation.
Accidents At Work - If you work with horses, either on a paid or voluntary basis, your employer has a duty to keep you safe. Employees at riding schools, stud farms, racing stables, competition centres, livery yards and trekking centres could all claim compensation if they have been injured at work due to a failure in this duty.
Accidents At Competitions - Competition organisers and the owners of venues have a duty to protect competitors, spectators and other people attending riding competitions.
