Horse riding and working with horses is an extremely popular past time but they are not without their risks. Moloney & Company Solicitors have handled many injury cases where clients have sustained horse related injuries. We can investigate your claim and determine whether you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries. Irish law provides that the operators of pony schools have to take reasonable care of all of their students and have to carry out proper risk assessments before allowing the students up on the horses to ensure that the horses are safe.
If you are employed or do voluntary work involving horses, for example at riding schools, at racing stables, stud farms or trekking centres, your employer has a duty to ensure that you are safe while working at the premises. These duties apply to all employees. If you have been injured whilst at work or volunteering, you should seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible if you wish to pursue a claim for damages.
