    Horse riding accidents

    If you are a horse rider you will already be well aware that the sport you love so much does have the potential to cause various accidents, and in some cases severe injuries, perhaps even a fatality.

    However, in some cases the accidents caused may not be down to a fault of the rider. If you have been injured in an accident which you do not think was your fault then the solicitors in Whitehall at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.

    To find out more you can contact us today and we will happily answer any questions you may have about the process in general or your case in more detail.

    How our solicitors in Whitehall have helped

    Our solicitors in Whitehall recently helped a rider after she was injured in an accident.

    Jane was riding her horse, Jovi along a road near her house. The road itself was a quiet country road and had been used by numerous riders for many years. Signs in the local area highlighted to other road users that there was a strong possibility of horse riders being present in the surrounding areas or on the road itself.

    At the time of an accident a large lorry was travelling along the same road as Jane. The driver ignored the hazard signs relating to the horses, and was driving in excess of the speed limit of 30 miles per hour.

    As the lorry turned a corner Jovi was spooked, reared, and threw Jane. As she fell Jane hit her head on the ground, but unfortunately this was not the end of the injury. She caught her foot in the stirrup and as her horse bolted she was dragged 100 yards along the ground. She lost consciousness and the next thing she remembered was waking up in the back of an ambulance.

    Jane suffered severe concussion, a broken ankle and deep lacerations to her face.

    Jane decided to contact the Accident Advice Helpline to see if our solicitors in Whitehall could help her win compensation from the lorry driver’s insurance providers. At the time of the accident the lorry driver had refused to accept responsibility, instead stating that the accident was Jane’s fault as she had been unable to control her horse. Of course, our solicitors in Whitehall argued that the accident would not have occurred if the lorry driver had observed the correct speed limits and had taken more care when driving in a horse dominated area.

    The driver admitted liability before our solicitors in Whitehall were forced to take the matter to court. As a result Jane was awarded compensation for both her her injuries, and also the time she had to take away from her job as a football coach.
