Our Michigan horse equine injury lawyers at the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a client injured while horseback riding in Stanton. The horse provided to our client was known to be a dangerous animal causing our client to be thrown and violently strike the ground.
Our client was diagnosed with a severely fractured wrist that required surgery to install hardware to secure the fracture. A subsequent surgery may be necessary to remove the hardware.
Our horse equine lawyers filed the lawsuit in the Montcalm County Circuit Court. Our client was not aware of how dangerous the animal was and had little or no riding experience which was known by the Defendants.
The lawsuit seeks damages for the pain and suffering of our client, scarring, lost wages and disability.
Under Michigan law, there are many cases when an injured person cannot file a claim because the legislature has made horse stables and owners of horses “immune” from lawsuits. However, there are certain exceptions to these laws that do permit lawsuits. That is why it is so important that if you or someone you know was seriously injured while horseback riding, that you contact an attorney who has experience in handling equine injury cases and has through knowledge on the laws.
