If you’re willing to ride a horse, to a certain degree you’re going to have to accept the fact that there could be a chance you might be injured, if the animal you were straddling suddenly decided it didn’t want you on its back and took action to get you off.
Sure, you might be able to take some form of 100% no win no fee Redcar and Cleveland claims action, if you could prove that a riding school you were attending was negligent in failing to make sure you had adequate safety equipment, or were riding a horse whose temperament wasn’t suited to your ability, but if you’re an experienced rider, you might pretty much have to take any injury you were to suffer as a result of your horse’s behaviour on the chin, perhaps even literally.
However, if you’re out and about in public with your equine, and it ends up doing a member of the public an injury in an accident that was not their fault, you might well find yourself in a position where you could be the one facing Redcar and Cleveland claims action for compensation.
Angry horses and Redcar and Cleveland claims action for compensation
Imagine that you were out on a public bridleway with your horse, enjoying a lovely ride on a delightful summer afternoon. All is going well: your horse is happy and so are you. After a little while, your horse seems to become a little agitated. Suddenly, it starts rearing up. You struggle to hold on, and are eventually thrown to the ground in the sort of accident that might put you in a position to make Redcar and Cleveland claims, if it wasn’t for the fact that you owned the horse.
Unfortunately, whilst your horse is rearing and bucking, it injures a young lady who is out walking her dog. She is kicked in the face by your steed, losing a good many teeth in the process. Under these circumstances, as it would have been your responsibility to keep your animal under control, the injured party might well be able to seek some form of personal injury compensation payout from you.
The claims process
All a potential claimant would have to do to get Redcar and Cleveland claims against you started would be to call a 100% no win no fee solicitor, such as Accident Advice Helpline on one of the numbers at the top of this webpage. He or she would not have to pay a single penny piece to get a case off the ground, and would not be responsible for any solicitor’s fees should they lose. It really could be that easy for them, because the no win no fee agreement takes care of the finances of a claim.
