Thousands of Western New Yorkers enjoy horseback riding. Unfortunately, this also means that many people are injured by kicking, biting or bucking horses.
People assume a lot of risk when they ride. It can be a dangerous activity and not every injury is worthy of compensation. But when a particular horse is known to engage in dangerous behavior, there may be a valid claim.
Because horses can cause severe injuries, most horse owners are required to carry insurance that will cover those injuries. In the case of stables or horse farms, extensive insurance coverage is often mandatory.
If you have suffered a personal injury caused by a horse, it is worth looking into the circumstances surrounding it and the behavior of the horse to determine if you have a case.
