Newmarket is famous for horses; horse racing, training and the stud. You may have been injured in an accident at one of the race courses in Newmarket and could be looking for injury solicitors in Newmarket to make a personal injury compensation claim. You may be a resident of Newmarket and perhaps you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence, in which case you may also be seeking injury solicitors in Newmarket.
Injury solicitors in Newmarket
Injury solicitors in Newmarket, or ones based anywhere else in the country, can help you file a personal injury compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. They can also help you file a claim if you can prove that an illness with which you have been diagnosed was caused because of another person’s negligence.
You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, although, if you were injured in an accident at sea, in the air, or at an airport, you only have two years in which to make your claim.
If you were injured in a crime and reported it to the police, you may be eligible to make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if the attack took place in England, Wales or Scotland, or through the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme if it happened in Northern Ireland.
If you are unsure about how long you have in which to file your claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers below.
Accidents involving horses
If you are at a race meeting, whether at Newmarket or at another track, take care when standing near a horse. Thoroughbreds can be skittish and on the way to or from the paddock, a groom may have difficulty handling a horse, which could bite or kick you. If you did nothing to provoke the animal, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for any injuries it caused against the owner of the horse.
Horses are beautiful, but heavy, animals and if you are knocked to the ground by one, and then it rears and stamps on you, it could inflict serious injuries. You should always take care when around them as they can get agitated if, for example, a camera’s flash light goes off in front of them.
