Horse rider awarded over £80,000 in compensation after terrible accident

A horse rider has been awarded £81,500 in compensation after being involved in a crash that caused him serious injuries and killed his horse. 

A car crashed into them, killing the horse instantly, and causing back, spine and rib fractures. He has now been left with permanently restricted movement as well as ongoing pain. The accident occurred when a car slowed down for them but a second car overtook.

The man’s injuries were so severe that he had to undergo pioneering where cement was injected into the damaged areas and titanium rods inserted.

The family contacted a solicitor and made a personal injury claim against the driver of the vehicle, who had admitted liability.
