Horse Riding Injury Compensation

Horse riding is a sport that is enjoyed by many people but it can be dangerous also,  you need to be skilled to ride a horse as it can cause serious injuries. Even experienced riders that ride carefully have the unexpected injuries as a result of horse riding.

If there is an injury that is suffered by the rider which is not the fault of the rider and is the negligence of someone else, the person has the right to make a horse riding injury compensation claim. Though most of the accidents that take place during horse rising are only accidental and are not the fault of anyone else, there are some cases where the accident that is caused is a result of someone else’s fault. It might be because of the defective equipments that have been provided to the horse riders such as the saddle, bridle, riding hat or reins. The rider also might get injured as a result of the riding that is done on an unsuitable surface. The fall from the horse can result in having injuries that can range from having bruises to spinal injuries, broken bones and also in severe cases it can result in brain damage.

The falls from the horses can be more dangerous if the horse falls on the top of the rider. This happens many a times. A horse is like a fully grown adult, weighs more than 500kg therefore can cause fatal injuries if they land on the top of the rider. The other injuries include horse bites, horse crushing the people against the gate and walls of the stable, kicks from the horse and many others.

If you have been injured by a horse while you were riding a horse or you have been the victim of the horse’s crushing then you may be entitled for filing a claim so that the compensatory amount for the medical expenses can be obtained from the horse owner. The compensation claim solicitors work on a no win no fee basis that means that if they fail to get you the compensated amount, you will not have to pay the money to the solicitor.

But it is very important that the solicitor that is chosen by you for getting the claim compensated must have the experience in the field. They should know the circumstances under which there are the best chances if getting the compensatory amount and also they must have the adequate knowledge that the claim that they are filing holds the chances of winning or not.

Slip in Public House
Mrs C whilst walking towards the bar area slipped on the wet floor of a public house whilst walking towards the bar area. She fell awkwardly causing a complex fracture of her right wrist. The insurers denied liability alleging the floor was dry and that Mrs C was drunk and jumping on the dancefloor. Cooks obtained evidence refuting this and issued the claim at Court. Settlement was reached just prior to the trial when Mrs C was awarded £20,000.00 she said:
"I would just like to say thanks to the staff who have been first class explaining things to me all the way and keeping me informed."
