Horse rider seeks road accident compensation

A horse rider who suffered severe brain damage after colliding with a motorcycle whilst out riding has launched a major battle for compensation.

In 2006, Michaela Devereux was horse riding with her husband in the New Forest when a motorcyclist careered into her.


Within a writ issued to the High Court, Ms Devereux claimed this accident was caused by the negligence of the motorcycle driver, adding that he lost control of his vehicle, equestrian magazine Horse and Hound has revealed.

Allegedly, the bike smashed into the horse, causing the animal to bolt and run away, leaving Mrs Deveruex in a heap on the floor.

Motorcyclist Peter Hayward has since denied any accusations of wrong doing, but police ruled that the accident was caused by him travelling at excess speed. As a result Mrs Devereux is now free to pursue a claim for damages against him.

The case continues.
