No win no fee* in Dronfield
While riding horses certainly won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, millions of people saddle up and take to the fields, roads and bridleways atop their trusty steed every week. Unfortunately for those who enjoy this sort of thing, buying and keeping a horse is a very pricey business. It also involves no small amount of work. As a consequence, people who like to ride horses often end up compromising and going for riding classes at a local farm or stable.
Now, even experienced horse riders can expect to have the odd knock or bruise when on a beast that doesn’t feel like playing ball. This is part and parcel of the pastime. You won’t be able to take personal injury action against a horse with the aid of a decent 100% no win no fee* Dronfield solicitor if you were to suffer an injury after being thrown off your steed though. However, it might be an entirely different story if you ended up getting injured while you were riding as the result of another person or organisation’s negligence.
