Common Causes of Horse Accident Claims
Horses are large and often unpredictable animals and even the most proficient of riders can fall and suffer injury. However, there are times when a horse rider is hurt as a direct result of another party’s negligence. This might be a groom who is harmed while at work, or a rider who has been injured during a lesson or a hack. In such cases, the harmed individual will be the victim of personal injury*, meaning he or she will be entitled to pursue a claim for the damage that has been caused.
Horse accident claims can arise for a number of reasons and can affect both novice and experienced riders. Some of the most common causes of horse accident claims include:
- Horse riders being given defective equipment to use
- Riders being injured because the girth on their saddle has not been adequately tightened
- Horse riders being led out on a hack, only to encounter a dangerous surface
- Riders being given a horse which is known to be difficult
- Poor management of a hack, with instructors failing to take charge of health and safety
- A vehicle has travelled too fast or too closely to a horse, causing them to become frightened and bolt
- A riding school has not taken sufficient steps to protect its employees, causing a member of staff to become involved in a horse accident
