Factors influencing the amount of compensation received for Horse Riding accidents
When making a claim for a horse riding accident, the details of the incident and the resultant injuries will be unique in every case. This makes it difficult to predict how much compensation someone may be entitled to claim until a more detailed assessment of their case has been made. In any type of personal injury claim, there are several factors that need to be considered when evaluating the potential value of your compensation claim.
The primary consideration is always the nature, severity and extent of your injuries, but other factors that will influence the final settlement value include:
- Cost of any past and future medical treatments and care needs
- Cost of any rehabilitative care such as physiotherapy or occupational therapy
- Other medical costs such as prescription costs and travel expenses to and from appointments
- Loss of income, both current and future. Including any bonuses and pension losses
- Veterinary care costs for your horse
- Compensation for the loss of your horse
- Cost of replacing or repairing any damaged property
- Cost of any adjustments needed to your home or vehicle
- Cost of any mobility equipment and daily living aids needed

How much compensation can you expect for being injured while Horse Riding?
Each horse riding accident is unique, as are the injuries they cause and the people they affect. As a result, each horse riding injury claim is also unique, making the process of giving an accurate indication of the compensation you are likely to receive, far from straightforward. The principal question surrounding the calculation of general damages is always focused on the nature of your injuries, their severity and extent, and the degree to which they are expected to affect your present and future life.
When evaluating your claim, our solicitors who specialise in horse riding accident claims will consider all the circumstances surrounding your particular case, only then will we be able to give you an accurate prediction of the potential value of your horse riding injury claim.
In some cases, where the injured person has sustained catastrophic injuries to the head, brain or spine, there may be a need to allow the injured person time to recover in order to be able to effectively assess their injuries. We can then seek to recoup the appropriate financial damages from the third party responsible for your injury. Where required, we can look to secure interim compensation payments to ensure a degree of financial security whilst the claim is being concluded.
The figures detailed below provide an insight into the potential ‘general damages’ compensation awards as set out in the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). General damages are designed to compensate you for the pain & suffering caused by the injuries you sustained in your horse riding accident.
