    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Legal specialist in Newmarket


    Newmarket is one of the most famous centres for horse racing in the country, so if you’re looking for a legal specialist in Newmarket it seems appropriate to offer some dedicated information about this type of claim.

    Challenges of horse riding

    By its nature, riding horses can be a fast-paced and occasionally dangerous activity. Horses are extremely powerful beasts who are very difficult to control, so the occasional accident is unavoidable. But in some cases there will be negligence, in which case a claim for personal injury compensation could be appropriate.

    One example of this could be if safety equipment is not properly fitted or maintained, or if the animal has been treated in such a way that makes it dangerous. Like all animals, horses have differing personalities and character traits, which means they might at times be a danger to ride on if not trained or looked after in a certain way.

    Making a claim

    Like most companies which are open to the public, horse stables will carry public liability insurance designed to cover them for any injuries which happen to the public while on their land. However, when it comes to horse riding, its specialist nature may need an expert who knows this territory very well.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we have lawyers from all sorts of disciplines on our books, which means we can probably find someone who can help you out in any kind of situation. This specialist will be able to give you much more information about your case and how it relates to the equestrian industry, than someone who is more of a generalist.

    Finding a legal specialist in Newmarket

    However, even with the provision of an expert legal specialist in Newmarket who deals in horse-related accidents, providing evidence of negligence is never an easy process, and these claims are often dismissed because of a lack of evidence.

    Remember, as you’re the person bringing the case, the responsibility is on you to prove the defendant was at fault, not the other way around. This means that if you want to win your case, you will need to have the evidence to back it up.

    However, don’t be worried – although the prospect of losing your case is very real, it’s not something you need to worry about if you choose Accident Advice Helpline. That’s because we work on the basis of no win no fee, which means that if we can’t help you win your case, we won’t charge you a single penny.

    To find out more about us and how we can help you to find a legal specialist in Newmarket, give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. Our team will help with anything you need.
