Horse riding accident claims can be complicated to value. With many involved in the care and training of the animal, it is not always straightforward to identify those responsible for an accident.
Our Horse riding accident claims calculator is a useful tool in offering an insight into the potential value of Horse riding accident claims. If you have sustained an injury in a horse riding accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to pursue a claim for financial damages.
When suffering a horse riding injury, ensuring the long term physical and mental well-being of the injured person is always the immediate priority. Whether the injuries are relatively minor or life-changing, once arrangements have been made regarding the appropriate medical care you can begin to start thinking about seeking financial compensation for your injuries.
The horse riding accident solicitors with Sheldon Davidson have assisted many people in making Horse riding accident claims and have experience in handling a varied range of different case types. These include horse riders suffering accidents on public roads, injuries to those working with horses and injuries to those attending horse riding events, either as a spectator or a competitor.
There is an inherent risk associated with riding or working with any animals, especially considering how unpredictable horses can become when startled by traffic. However, you are entitled to expect an appropriate level of consideration from other road users and have the right to demand to be kept safe by those responsible for your wellbeing. Whether that person is an instructor for riding lessons or a stable owner, they may have breached their duty of care towards you and be liable to compensate you for a horse accident.
Our Horse Riding Accident Compensation Calculator is intended to give you an idea of the general damages aspect of your Horse Riding Injury Claim and may be a valuable tool in helping you understand the compensation bracket that your particular injury may be classified as.
