Abertillery road traffic accident claim


You may live in Abertillery, or you may have had an accident while driving past it or through it, and, if you were injured, you might be contemplating filing an Abertillery road traffic accident claim for injuries and damage to property. In order to be eligible to file a claim, you need to be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident. As you may be seeking to claim compensation for your injuries, you also have to be in a position to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident. In other words, if your vehicle was the only one involved in an accident, you may not be able to file an Abertillery road traffic accident, unless it really was another person’s fault.

Making an Abertillery road traffic accident claim

You may have been out riding in the countryside around Abertillery and then had to go back to the stables and take a road for some of the way back. Motorists are not always as careful as they should be when they encounter horses, perhaps because they are ‘townies’ and have no experience of driving along quiet country roads. If a motorist uses a horn when close to a horse, then he or she is acting recklessly as horses can be easily spooked. There are an estimated three million horse riders in this country, and they have as much right to use the roads as drivers.

Of course, in the past, horses and donkeys were the only form of transport, and in the UK we drive as we do because of the conventions established in those days. Riders travelled on the left to keep their sword arm free (that’s assuming, of course, that the majority were right handed).

Accidents involving horses

Motorists should respect the horse and riders’ right to be on the road, and bear in mind that horses are very powerful animals. If a horse was frightened and reared because of the sound of a horn, it could easily do a great deal of damage to a vehicle, and its rider could be fatally injured. In such an accident, the driver would be deemed responsible for the accident and could not make an Abertillery road traffic accident claim.

Both horse riders and drivers need to follow the Highway Code and riders should wear protective fluorescent clothes, or ones with strips and helmets in order to minimise injuries in the event of an accident. They need to be clearly seen by motorists.
