Horse riding accidents

“Can I say what a great job you have done for me, I am very happy this is now concluded.”

Ms S Hampshire
If you or your horse are involved in an accident and suffered an injury, such as after a road traffic accident, attack by another horse or any other negligent act or omission by a third party, our expert personal injury lawyers will give you the best possible advice on your entitlement to compensation.

You may also be entitled to compensation if you have had an accident not related to riding but which has stopped you from riding, working and/or looking after horses. Our specialist personal injury solicitors have plenty of experience in dealing with this type of claim.

We will work closely with our independent medical experts to assess the extent of your injuries and make a substantial compensation claim based on your pain and suffering, medical needs and the effect on your work and social life.

Our clients choose BL Claims Solicitors to handle their horse riding accident compensation claims because:

  • We are acknowledged leaders in the field

If you want to make a horse riding compensation claim, we will discuss with you the available funding options and give advice on the best way to protect you from paying legal costs. Common options available include funding your compensation claim privately or using Legal Expenses Insurance that is part of your travel insurance, house insurance, car insurance or trade union membership. We may be able to offer a Conditional Fee agreement, also known as a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement. You can find out more about CFAs on the Law Society website.
