Equine & animal claims

We have a wealth of experience in dealing with equine and animal claims.

Trethowans are members of the Equine and Animal Lawyers Association

Claims of this type involve niche expertise, not least in relation to liability investigations.

In addition to the usual causes of action a sound knowledge of the Animals Act 1971 and associated case law is required.

Team members represented the successful party in the House of Lords in the leading case of Mirvahedy v Henley (2003) (the case which defined the responsibilities of keepers of animals under Section 2 of the Animals Act 1971). The team has subsequently developed a niche expertise in dealing with these cases.

For more information see the Animals Act 1971 and case law developments.

See also Agricultural & rural claims for details of the team’s proven expertise in that area.
