Compensation For Woman After Horse Attack

An Irwin Mitchell client from Sheffield was awarded compensation in an out of court settlement for injuries she sustained after being attacked by a horse.

The woman was walking across a Countryside and Rights of Way Act (CROW) field, where the public have a statutory right of access, or have been given permission by the landowner.  As she was walking, a stallion galloped towards her and started to rear and kick out.  As a result of this attack our client sustained a number of injuries, including a fractured right leg, a chipped bone and a large, deep open wound to her leg.

With the help of Irwin Mitchell’s specialist Public Liability team, a positive outcome was achieved and our client received £25,000 in compensation for the injuries sustained.
