I was knocked over by a horse which was being lead through a 'No Horse zone' at a riding event. This resulted in fractures to my C7 vertebrae. I was in a neckbrace for 7 weeks and suffered greatly. I have sent a letter to the party at fault for my accident stating that I do not wish to involve Lawyers as I am asking for compensation for my personal costs only. After I month, I have not had a reply. Am I able to bring the party at fault before a Magistrate for personal injury case mediation or must I use personal injury lawyers?
