Accident at competition event

Competitions and other equine events are exciting for all participants, whether that be for the riders or spectators, but there are occasions when things can go wrong. Organisers and owners have a duty to ensure that they minimise the risk of avoidable injury. There may be lots of people and horses at the event, and the organisers/ owners will need to ensure that they have provisions in place to ensure the safety of all attending the event, to prevent the risk of people being trampled, kicked or crushed.

If you have suffered an injury at a competition as a rider or spectator we may be able to help you recover compensation.

Bringing claims for injuries caused by horses is a complex area of law and they are not usually straightforward nor easy to pursue. Therefore, it is important to seek specialist legal advice. We are experienced in this specialist area and have a proven track record of successfully perusing these types of claims.

We will look to claim damages and compensation arising from the incident to ensure that you are put in the position you were before the incident.

​This can include:

  • Compensation for your injuries, both mental and physical
  • Treatment costs
  • Lost earnings
  • Care and help provided by family and friends while you are recovering
  • Clothing and other property damaged in the incident
  • Any other losses resulting from the accident.
