Bull Riding Injury Lawyer
Bull riding is an exciting spectator sport to watch, but a dangerous sport to practice. In bull riding, the riders must risk it all, to stay on a bull for 8 seconds. Bulls are bread purely to buck when a rider gets on the bull (fun fact), and the bull rider has to overcome everything to stay on the bull for the required amount of time. The bull rider in a competition bull ride, holds only one hand onto a braided cord rope that is wrapped around the bull’s middle section during the duration of the ride.
What brings the element of excitement to the bull riding match, is that the rope is not attached to the bull in any way. It is only held on by the force of the bull rider’s strong grip, to keep that rider on the bull. The bull rider’s free hand cannot touch the rope, the bull or themselves, or the person is automatically disqualified. That is why you will see the bull rider’s other hand flailing about behind the person!
Even for the excitement of watching men and women ride the bulls, the bull riders are at a high risk of injury in every competition and stadium bull riding show. Compounding these risks are the issue that a rodeo may not have the proper trauma responders on staff or at the stadium, when the injured riders take a fall or have an accident. If you have been injured in a bull riding competition, you can call us to discuss your case right now.
Bull Riding and Rodeo Competitions Often Waive Medical Advisors on the Grounds
Sometimes rodeo and bull riding competitions do not have accessible medical advisors on the grounds of the stadium hosting the event. For this reason, some rodeo bull riding injuries are never seen by a medical professional. This will force the bull riders to medicate themselves, and manage their pain on their own. In that case, without a formal diagnosis, these bull riders are at a high risk of getting their diagnosis wrong, and needlessly suffering from a serious injury. If you have been injured at a bull riding competition or rodeo, and there were no medical first responders available when you were injured, you need to give our law office a call today.

Some Bull Riding Competitions and Rodeos Have No Injury Reporting System
It is the case that some bull riding competitions and rodeos do not have a standardized injury reporting system. This is important to note, because it shows a lack of responsibility on the part of the owners and operators of the bull riding competition, rodeo and stadium owners to manage care for injured bull riders. If the bull riders experience an accident from falling off of a bull or being trampled by a bull, there may be some serious injuries as a result of this type of loss. In that case, it would be helpful to have trained medical personnel nearby, to help aid in the care of injured bull riding participants.

Injuries of Bull Riders Are Not Always Clearly Noted and Understood
Many times, injuries to a bull rider may be based on an older recurrent injury, or may make an old injury worse. This is why it would be helpful to have the proper medical personnel on staff at a bull riding stadium, to ensure that the bull riders are seen by medical first responders when they do experience an accident or an injury. Some injuries are not attributed to only one risk factor. For example, if a bull rider’s hand is caught in the loop and he or she cannot break free, the bull will drag the rider and severely injure the rider in the process. In that case, there will be more than one injury, and the bucking of the bull will definitely contribute to the severity of the injury as well.
