HORSE RELATED NEGLIGENCE CASES

Horseback riding may have a lower injury rate than other sports like football, however when accidents do happen, they can be very severe. One of the most frequent injuries, as well as the top cause of mortality in horse-related injury events, is a head injury. Even with the introduction of helmets, and other protective equipment, the amount of equine related injuries remain quite high.

EQUINE RELATED INJURIES

Horseback riding is considered a dangerous activity due to the unpredictability of a very large animal. There are many different ways that a horse-related injury can occur. The most common are:

  • Horseback riding accidents
  • Being kicked or stepped on by a horse
  • Falling off of a horse
  • Horse bites

The majority of horse-related injuries occur while the victim is horseback riding. These accidents can be caused by many different things, such as the horse being startled or frightened, the horse getting spooked, a horse bucking or rearing, or sometimes the inexperience of a rider.  Horseback riding accidents can result in many different types of injuries, the most common being head injuries, fractured bones, and moderate to severe lacerations.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY INJURY CASE IS WORTH PURSUING?
