About horse riding injury claims
Horses and cars can mix safely but there are times when a horse can become spooked and act out of character thereby causing an accident or where other road users do not give a horse enough space and can collide with the horse knocking the rider off and causing them an injury. Being exposed without protection and falling from height can be enough to cause an injury never mind if the rider does not actually collide with the vehicle.
Remember to always wear a riding hat. James Hooker, 18, was riding a family horse near Swansea when he fell by accident and hit the ménage fence causing him a personal injury.
Following the fall, the horse then kicked James in the head causing him a further serious injury. Fortunately, James's hat took the impact of the kick, splitting it down one side. James suffered a chipped eye socket, chipped right shoulder blade and a nasty laceration to his cheek. James's mother explained "the doctor in A&E said he would have been killed outright if he'd not been wearing a hat”.
Fortunately, James is now back at home and feeling better.
PSR Solicitors urge all riders to always wear a riding hat to protect themselves as even with personal protection it is possible to suffer a personal injury, which is better than a fatal accident.
