Litigating Equine Personal Injury Cases
Created on January 25, 2021
Currently, all states except for California and Maryland have enacted some form of an equine activities liability act, which restricts the ability of a participant in equestrian activities to hold owners and operators of equestrian facilities liable for personal injuries arising out of the inherent risks of such activities. This course will review the general statutory framework of such acts, distinguish the "inherent risks of equine activities" from conduct which falls outside the protection of the acts, and discuss best practices in bringing and defending equine injury lawsuits.
- Review equine liability acts in general, and their similarities and differences across states
- Analyze judicial interpretation of equine liability acts
- Determine practical considerations for attorneys bringing and defending equine injury lawsuits
