David Delaney successfully argued a motion for summary judgment on behalf of their client, the owner of a horse ranch. At the hearing, the Court dismissed the Plaintiff’s claims that he was injured while attempting to load a horse into a trailer after purchasing it from the Defendant. The Plaintiff charged that the rancher’s employees failed to provide any assistance in loading the horse. The Plaintiff also alleged that the Defendant failed to warn Plaintiff of the horse’s temperamental disposition and dangerous propensities.
Mr. Delaney defended the case with Florida’s Equine Activities statute. This law protects ranch owners, horse farms, and other sponsors of equine activities against personal injury claims when certain notice provisions are followed.
