About horse riding accidents

Whilst a satisfying and enjoyable hobby for some, and part of a job for others, horse riding is not without risk, and there are lots of ways a person can be injured whilst horse riding, such as on the road, in their course of work, or at show jumping or other riding events.

Riders who take their horses out on roads used by other vehicles may be injured due to the negligence of a driver. In most cases, riders think they are responsible for the accident and do not attempt to make a claim, but if the accident was caused by somebody else, you are entitled to compensation.

We understand how much a horse means to its rider, how it can provide a great deal of pleasure, or may be used for your livelihood, as well as how difficult it can be to get your horse back to their old self after they have been involved in an accident. YouClaim has worked with many clients who have claimed compensation relating to the injury of their horse, helping them to pay for expensive vet bills that help them make a recovery, as well as compensating riders for their own injuries

Once a horse has been involved in an accident, which may involve both physical and mental trauma, they may never return to how they once were, regardless of the treatment they have had. As a result, the value of the horse may decrease, which is something we can claim compensation for.

Types of injuries

There are many ways that riders can be injured, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Other neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Broken limbs and other bones
  • Paralysis
  • Bruising/soft tissue damage

Horses too may be injured in many ways when involved in an accident, including:

  • Back and shoulder injuries
  • Muscular injuries
  • Leg injuries including breaks and damaged ligaments/tendons
  • Bone bruising
  • Shoulder injuries

Many of these injuries can have a serious impact on your life, leaving you in pain and possibly off work for a considerable amount of time, as well as needing to meet other financial obligations, such as having to pay expensive veterinary bills if your horse is also injured.

When you make a compensation claim, your financial expenses are included as part of the claim, which is one of the reasons that making a claim is so important. 

How YouClaim can help

We have helped many clients who have injured themselves or had their horse injured claim compensation on a no win, no fee basis. This means you are financially protected in the event that your claim is not successful as you will not have to pay any legal fees. This means that making a claim is a risk-free, stress-free process that should ultimately enable you to focus on your recovery as we seek to secure you the compensation you deserve.
