Horse Accident Injury Claims

Horse-riding is a famous sport that is believed to have very relaxing effects on the horse-rider and thus many people invest their time and money in horse-riding. But people do not realise that horses are actually very heavy creatures and thus even the young horses have a lot of power. Injuries caused during horse-riding are very common and can be very severe.

There are various horse-riding types, the jumping, pleasure riding, stock-work and cross country. In the cross country and jumping kind, horses can actually travel in a pace that equals or is more than 30mph with you sitting just on saddle, holding ropes without any straps.

One of the most common ways to injure yourself while on horse is by falling off. The fall can be very serious at times giving you lifelong injuries. Other ways can be of horse bucking or throwing you off. Horse injury accidents do not merely occur when you are riding it all by yourself, they can also happen when someone is feeding, grooming or handling the horse. The horse that is being handled may be a domesticated one, but you can never be absolutely safe in case of animals.

Some of the very common injuries that you are susceptible to suffer if you have been injured by a horse are:

  • elbow, shoulder and wrist injuries
  • ankle, foot and knee injuries
  • bruises, strains and sprains
  • spinal injuries
  • injuries of the head and the concussion
  • dislocations and broken bones

If you have fallen prey to any of these horse accident injuries, or if you have been kicked, trodden on or hurt by a horse with you being at absolutely no fault, then you can file for horse accident injury claims. Also, if you believe that you were not given the right kind of training and equipments to handle the horse, then too you have authentic civil and legal right to get compensated by the horse accident injury claims.

If you feel that you cannot hire a solicitor as you are low on cash, then to relieve you of this trouble, there are companies that charge money only if and after you win the case and your reimbursement is in your hands. They will also provide you with the necessary advice and guidance. But it is crucial that you make your horse accident injury claim within the time-frame of three years or else, your eligibility to make a claim does not hold value after that.
