Horse riding is often viewed as a majestic and elegant sport. This is particularly the case amongst younger girls, thanks to the beauty of the animals involved. Horse riding, however, can be a dangerous sport if proper training and animal care is not followed, and can lead to horse riding accidents.
If you have been the victim of serious injury due to poor training or supervision, Accident Advice Helpline can give you the horse riding accident advice you need to make a claim.
Horses are powerful animals that can, if treated incorrectly, become scared or violent and result in serious injury for their riders. Being thrown or kicked by a horse can result in devastating injuries that could alter your life; as such, Accident Advice Helpline can help you to claim the compensation you deserve.
Horse riding tutors should have insurance in place against such major injuries due to the nature of the animal. This insurance means that it is often straightforward and easy to make a claim where sufficient evidence exists.
Accident Advice Helpline’s specialist solicitors have experience in dealing with such claims, which means that they will be able to advise you on the best course of action and help you to get compensation for your horse riding accident.
When can I claim for a horse riding accident?
As with all types of claim, the main factor to consider is who is at fault in the accident; in the case of horse riding this usually relates to your instructor, who should have insurance to cover such eventualities. If you feel that your instructor provided inadequate training that directly led to your accident or if they left you unsupervised when you did not feel ready, you may be able to claim.
In cases of horse riding accidents where there are complexities due to the animal involved or the possibility that the accident was through no one’s fault, it is important to secure specialist assistance in making your claim.
Accident Advice Helpline’s friendly advisers can quickly assess your claim and help you to take the first steps towards receiving compensation by connecting you with an experienced solicitor.
What is needed to claim?
Due to the nature of horse riding accidents, it is important to produce as much evidence as possible. Details of when, where and how the accident happened are a necessity; these details can usually be provided by way of medical reports. Photographic evidence can be extremely helpful, as well as details of your horse riding experience and the animal involved in your accident.
If you have sustained a serious injury from horse riding and think you may have a claim, regardless of the evidence, a free phone call to Accident Advice Helpline can help to evaluate your claim and what the next steps should be.
If you have a strong case we can connect you with a specialist solicitor experienced in horse riding accident claims. The solicitor will then guide you through the necessary evidence-gathering and submissions to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve for your horse riding accident-related injuries.
