Injury lawyers Lasswade
Usually you have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However in the cases of accidents at sea, those that occur in the air or at airports, you only have two years in which to file a claim. If you are unsure of how long you have to file your claim, you can find out from injury lawyers in Lasswade for example, or ones based close to where you live. We at Accident Advice Helpline can also provide you with this information.
You also only have two years to claim for injuries sustained during an act of violence which occurred during a crime. You must claim for such injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), but compensation for your injury should not be less than £1,000 as this is the minimum amount paid out by the CICA.
Common horse riding accidents
You may be one of the estimated three million people in Britain who go horse riding, and if you do, you will know that horses can be temperamental creatures which can get spooked easily by unusual noises. You can go some way to protect yourself from having an accident while riding, for example by carefully checking the saddle and girth are secured and by not riding on a road which is very busy or has an unsuitable surface for horse-riding.
If you go to a horse-riding centre, you should check the equipment you are provided with to ensure that it is not in any way defective. You should also inspect your riding hat to ensure that it will afford you protection.
Sometimes inexperienced riders are given horses which are volatile, and this can lead to an accident. This might happen if no other horses are available for example.
Other accidents happen when the riding instructors are poor leaders with bad management skills on hacks. There may be too many riders on a road, or there may not be an instructor in the front of the riders as well as at the back.
