    Horse riding accidents

    Horse riding accident claims

    Working closely with horses will always come with certain dangers. Both rider and horse may be injured if they are involved in a road traffic collision, or someone can fall from or get kicked by a horse when handling them. If you or a loved one have been involved in a horse riding accident on the road or in an equestrian centre, you can make a claim for compensation if it is not your fault.

    The injuries suffered from a riding accident can be minor but also devastating, especially if any injury to the horse proves fatal. In the worst case scenario, people can suffer permanent disability or paralysis if they fall from height whilst horse riding. In such circumstances, it is vital you pursue compensation from the negligent party.

    If you are unable to fully recover from your injuries, the compensation you can claim for will also take into account your long-term future. This includes what you may need for medical provision, future care such as adjustments at home, and loss of earnings.

    At Watermans, we employ specialist personal injury solicitors who are experienced in handling horse riding accidents. Speak to one of our advisors today to start your claims process.
