Types of riding accident

Horse riding is a popular pastime in the UK – but it’s not without its risks. Horses are flight animals that can react suddenly when startled, particularly on country roads.

Accident risks can include:

  • Working with horses, for example, at a stable
  • Competitive sport, such as eventing or jumping
  • Cars passing too closely on narrow roads
  • Collisions between car and horse during road exercise
  • During horse riding lessons, such as the school failing to provide adequate supervision or safety

Injuries often include broken bones, sprains, head injuries and severe bruising.

When can you make a horse riding accident claim?

You’re likely to be eligible to claim compensation if your injury occurred because of the fault of someone else.

There are a few steps you can take to help the process:

  • Make sure you’ve had medical treatment for your injury
  • Report the accident to whoever is responsible – for example, work manager or event manager
  • Get contact details and statements from any witnesses
  • Take photos of the accident scene, your injuries and any relevant items

How can First4Lawyers help?

Our solicitors know how complex these cases can be and are experienced in putting together evidence and argument to get you the best results and maximum compensation. We also offer No Win No Fee* agreements for personal injury claims.

How much compensation will I receive?

That very much depends on your injury and how severe it is. Our compensation calculator will give you an idea of the amounts you could be awarded, but a chat with our advisors will help clarify this as it will be tailored to your individual circumstances.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

Personal injury claims usually have to be made within three years of the accident, unless the injured person is a child or someone of limited mental capacity. For more information on what this could mean for your claim, just contact us.

I think I have a claim, what do I do next?

Get in touch with us as soon as possible for a free consultation. We’ll ask you to talk us through what happened, before advising you of your options and whether you are eligible to make a claim.

If you want to proceed, we will then put you in touch with a solicitor who will take it from there.

All you need to do is fill out our short personal injury form or request a callback at the top of the screen and we’ll be in touch.
