Equine related accidents
Like a lot of animals, horses can be very temperamental however, the difference with a horse is, they are a lot larger and stronger. The consequences of an equine related accident could potentially be very serious.
One of the most common causes of horse related accidents are those involving cars and motorcyclists. Over the past 5 years at least 2000 cases of road incidents involving horses have been reported to The British Horse Society, 36 of which caused the death of the rider.
People are also frequently injured while at work with horses, in competition, while in schooling or at their own premises. The injury is not always as a result of the horses misbehaviour but can be as a result of someone else failing to fulfil their duty toward you.
Perhaps you have been mis-sold a horse and when riding it, reared and caused you harm, or your employer was negligent in the protective equipment they provided you?
Many horse related accidents are through no fault of your own or the horse. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of someone else’s negligent conduct then you could be entitled to compensation.
