Car crash has ended Olympic dreams for dressage rider

A British dressage rider has begun a £300,000 car accident compensation claim after suffering personal injuries which have ruined his career.

The 23-year-old, from Chichester in West Sussex, was travelling as a passenger in a Renault Clio when it was involved in a head-on crash with another car.

The claimant, who had high hopes for being part of the Olympic team, suffered leg injuries that were so severe he required an eight-hour operation.

According to a High Court writ, the rider has been left with one leg shorter than the other, serious scarring, and an altered gait. He will also require further surgery.

It is now unlikely that the young man will ever be able to continue his career in dressage riding and his plans to become a trainer have also been jeopardised by the car crash.

The man has now started a car accident compensation claim against his former friend who was driving the car at the time of the accident. He claims that the driver was going too fast and had lost control of the car, which effectively caused the head-on collision.
