Equestrian Liability Lawsuit Filed - Fall From Horse

Comments (0)

Our Michigan equestrian lawyers recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of a three year old girl who was thrown from a horse at a local fair.  The minor plaintiff sustained a fractured arm and collar bone.  The fractured arm needed to be re-set when the fracture was not healing properly.  

In Michigan, there are numerous legal obstacles to suing a negligent horse owner, stable, or other party when an injury arises from horse back riding or any other equestrian activity. Most possible defendant have been granted immunity under the Michigan Equine Liabilities Act, but there are certain exceptions to these laws that do permit lawsuits. It is essential to hire an experienced Michigan equestrian injury lawyer right after the incident so that a proper investigation can be performed.  In this case, we were able to prove that this incident was an exception to the immunity law and settled the case for $40,000.
