Ex-Olympic dressage hopeful seeking £300k compensation

Ex-Olympic dressage hopeful seeking £300k compensation

Personal injury compensation of at least £300,000 is being sought by a professional dressage rider following a serious road traffic accident.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Sonnar Murray-Brown - who was regarded as a potential member of Team GB at the 2012 Olympics in London - sustained badly broken bones in both his legs during a collision in Hampshire in January 2009.

The 23-year-old was a passenger in a vehicle driven by former friend Lee Harris when the car was involved in a head-on crash due to the fact the motorist was apparently driving dangerously.

Within a writ served to the High Court, Mr Murray-Brown claims Mr Harris was driving his Renault Clio too fast, meaning he should be liable for the devastating injuries he sustained.

Due to the effects of this incident, it is not thought likely the man - who won the 2008 BYRDS A Squad Rider of the Year award - will be able to return to competing in dressage events at the highest level.
