Injury Claim in Hickstead


The hamlet of Hickstead lies on the A23 road, the main London to Brighton route, and is located just over 4 km west of Burgess Hill in West Sussex, the South East of England.

The village itself is not particularly notable for any historic events or illustrious families having lived there, but thrives because it is the home of the All England Jumping Course and regularly hosts important events in the equestrian sporting world.

The course was opened in 1960 and was the first permanent showground for horse and rider sporting events in Britain. The show jumping events consist of mainly two international level competitions, namely the Royal International Horse Show and the British Jumping Derby. Since its expansion of the grounds, there are now also dressage and other equestrian sports being held at this venue, as well as conferences and similar functions focusing on the world of horses.

For the high jump

The show grounds can accommodate up to 5,000 spectators at a time and the 4 days of the British Jumping Derby alone attract some 20,000 visitors to the grounds every year. Horses and their riders must compete on a 1,195-metre long course that boasts some of the most fiendishly difficult jumps – in particular the Devil’s Dyke, where three fences in short succession lie in wait, with a water-filled ditch in the middle just waiting to trip up the horse.

While riders expect to be thrown off by a grumpy mount or fall off during a jump, spectators expect to be kept safe in their seats. Nobody expects a disaster to occur at an equestrian sporting event, but stages have been known to collapse, roofs have been known to be blown off in high winds and advertising boards have a tendency to come off in strong gusts of wind, too.

If you suffer an accident during a sporting event and that accident was the result of somebody’s negligence, you can make an injury claim in Hickstead and expect to be paid compensation for your injuries.
