Horse stamp accident leads to personal injury compensation claim
A mother from the north-east of England is taking her personal injury compensation claim to London’s Appeals Court after suffering facial injuries when she was stamped on by a horse.Kara Goldsmith is pursuing damages from the animal’s owner, businessman Bradley Patchcot, as she claims she was not warned the horse could be difficult to control.Speaking to the Journal, she said her efforts are not only about the money, as she wants to stop similar incidents from occurring in the future.”The hardest thing though for me is that I can’t feel anything when my children kiss me,” said Ms Goldsmith, who added she is still in a lot of pain and is yet to come to terms with the accident.Tim Gleave, a personal injury specialist at Ashtons Legal, adds: “Horses are unpredictable animals and their size often results in serious injuries when riders are kicked or fallen onto. Claims made under the Animals Act 1971 are not the easiest to bring but should you require any advice on injuries sustained in an accident involving a horse please contact us.”
