Negligence details




Horse riding injury solicitors have a difficult job to separate the risks that a participant in sport takes on as part and parcel of the risk of the sport in general and those dangers that have been thrown up as a result of negligent practices by a third party that puts the participant at risk of nonconsensual injury. Equestrian sports including horse riding, show jumping, cross country and eventing are dangerous enough without the introduction of extra hazards due to another person's negligence.


Patients who have been injured whilst horse riding, show jumping, cross country or eventing often instruct horse riding injury solicitors to help them sort through what happened and decide if there was negligence by an individual employee of a sports facility, the sports facility itself or another rider who may have unintentionally but nevertheless negligently caused the injury.


Whilst investigating a horse riding, show jumping, cross country or eventing accident, horse riding injury solicitors will evaluate what has happened, examine medical records and reports, speak to eye witnesses where possible and discuss the matter with representatives from the sports facility (who may be lawyers). After consideration of all of the facts, the sports injury solicitor will advise on negligence will attempt to assess who, if anyone is to blame for what happened.


Once it has been established that negligence caused the horse riding, show jumping, cross country or eventing accident the personal injury solicitor for the claimant will write a formal letter of claim to the sporting facility concerned. The matter will be dealt with by insurers who will instruct a sports injury solicitor to represent them if initial settlement negotiations fail. In the vast majority of cases, only the sports facility will be held liable. Rarely will an individual person be named as a defendant in the summons. Sports facilities almost always have liability insurance that covers for these kinds of injuries and thus are the ones who are sued in most horse riding, show jumping, cross country or eventing cases.
