Compensation for Woman After Horse Attack

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.
