Claiming Compensation For Horse Riding Injuries

If you have suffered an injury while riding or working with horses and you do not feel it was your fault, our expert personal injury team could help you to make a horse riding injury claim.

Any compensation awarded will take into account your pain and suffering, any lost earnings, and any expenses you have incurred as a result. Your claim can also cover  bills for your medical treatment. If your injuries are particularly serious, we can help you with rehabilitation and access to other support services, thanks to the expertise of our serious injury team.

Our personal injury specialists have helped clients to claim compensation after a range of accidents while riding or working with horses, including:

Road Traffic Accidents

Road users have a duty to take care when they are passing or approaching horses being ridden or led along public roads. If you and your horse have been injured in a road accident caused by a lack of care from other road users, we could help you to claim compensation

Accidents At Work

If you work with horses, either on a paid or voluntary basis, your employer has a duty to keep you safe. Employees at riding schools, stud farms, racing stables, competition centres, livery yards and trekking centres could all claim compensation if they have been injured at work due to a failure in this duty

Accidents At Competitions

Competition organisers and the owners of venues have a duty to protect competitors, spectators and other people attending riding competitions. If you were injured at a competition, you should speak to our experts about making a claim
