You may have visited the famous racecourse at Kempton Park for an afternoon of jump racing or perhaps you enjoy flat racing more. Horses can be unpredictable and you may have suffered an injury while there. If that is so, you could be considering making an accident claim in Kempton Park-based. Of course Kempton Park also hosts live music events and has regular markets, so you may have had an accident and an injury after attending an event.
Accident claim in Kempton Park
You can make an accident claim in Kempton Park if you suffer from a work-related illness and have been diagnosed within the last three years. You can usually file an accident claim in Kempton Park, or one elsewhere in the British Isles within three years, although for some claims, such as for injuries sustained in a crime, or for injuries in accidents at sea or in the air, you have only two years in which to make a claim. However, the sooner you file an accident claim in Kempton Park or elsewhere, the better. Don’t wait until the three years is almost up, and check with an accident or personal injury solicitor (or us at Accident Advice Helpline) to find out how long you have to file your particular claim.
Accidents in public places
In May 2013 a member of the public died in an accident at York racecourse. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are investigating the circumstances. A racecourse is a public place, and the owners of any such premises have the responsibility of safeguarding the health and safety of the public. If you have an accident in a public place then you may be able to file an injury claim.
If you have an accident in the street, then you may be able to claim personal injury compensation from the local authority if, for example, you sprained your ankle when you accidentally put your foot in a pothole while crossing the street. You could make an injury claim, for instance if you tripped over a manhole cover or fell down an open one, although this would probably be made against a utilities company.
If you were bitten by a horse while attending a race meet, and you had to have medical treatment, then you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against the horse’s owner.
