Accident Solicitor Wrightington
The parish of Wrightington in West Lancashire is home to an array of farms and equestrian establishments, which contribute to the success of its agricultural economy. Horse riding is a popular activity in the parish, but unfortunately, it is not without its dangers.
Common horse riding injuries in Wrightington
Due to the large size of horses, falls are by far the most common type of riding accident and can result in life-changing injuries. Whilst head protection can reduce the risk of serious head injuries, broken bones and spinal injuries often result when riders fall from their horses. Aside from falls, injuries may also result from road accidents.
Riding a horse on the roads of Wrightington should be a safe and enjoyable activity, as long as everyone abides by the rules of the Highway Code. Unfortunately, horses can be spooked when cars pass too close to them or move too quickly. Riders can even become unseated through direct contact with other road users. Riders and other road users must therefore take care while on the roads, ensuring that they leave each other enough space and travel at an appropriate speed. Riders should also keep in single file when travelling as a group.
