Accidents involving horses
If you know anything about horses, you will know that even the tamest of them can behave in an unpredictable manner on occasions. While at Fontwell Park, you may have had an accident involving a horse, perhaps while you were standing near the gate to the paddock. A horse may have bitten you if its groom couldn’t control it for example. If that happened to you, if you had done nothing to provoke the horse, you could have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim. You would, of course, have to seek immediate medical treatment and report the accident to a member of staff at the racecourse. They would need to write the details of the accident in the accident book, along with the names and contact details of any witnesses.
Horses are large animals and could easily injure you if they stepped on your foot or crushed you against a gate or wall. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if this happened to you.
