    Halton accident claim


    If you have a young daughter, it is likely that the subject of riding a horse might have come up from time to time. The same might well be true if you have a son, of course, but it perhaps would not be unkind to say that this is more the preserve of young girls.

    Either way, if you have sought out some riding lessons for your son or your daughter, you might have found yourself taken aback by how much stables charge for a half-hour on horseback. Many stables won’t leave you with much change out of £50 for a full 60 minutes.

    For this sort of money, you would think you could be pretty sure that your child would be kept safe from any danger that might put them at a risk of being injured in an accident that was not their fault during their session. Unfortunately, this will not always be the case. If your son or daughter was injured while having a session at a riding school, it might well be possible that you could secure the services of a top Halton accident claim law firm with a view to seeking compensation.

    Horse riding accidents and a Halton accident claim

    Imagine that you’ve accompanied your daughter to your local stables for her first horse riding lesson. You want to hang around to offer emotional support, in case she gets a bit anxious by herself. The lady who run the stables seems absolutely delightful, and does her best to put your daughter at her ease. Unfortunately though, once the riding starts, it seems as though your daughter was provided with a steed that was totally unsuitable for a beginner of her age.

    Shortly after your daughter started cantering round a field on the back of the horse she was provided with, she was thrown off after the beast reared up for no reason at all. If you could prove that the stable was negligent in supplying your daughter with an unsuitable horse in these circumstances, you might have a claim for compensation if she was injured.
