Blog - Case of the Month

November 2021
NAES Favorites


May 2009 used for November 2021

This month’s case began with the plaintiff running into three horses who’d escaped from a farm with a poorly constructed fence. The crash happened on an interstate highway and ended with the plaintiff crashing into another vehicle resulting in death to the second motorist.

The defense tried in vain to wiggle out of the case but their client’s fencing negligence clearly had allowed horses to escape causing the disastrous consequences.

The insurance company had to pay out the policy limits plus a huge additional payment because of a “bad faith” insurance issue. (“Bad faith” often refers to an insurance company who could be required to pay more if it can be shown they acted recklessly with disregard to the claimant’s or the policy owner’s rights. Ask your attorney to explain more “bad faith” triggers).

The case points out two very important points: 1) Make sure your stable’s fencing is first rate and maintained 2) choose your legal group and insurance carrier well. The least expensive insurer may not be the best in claims settlements.

Proving again that the truth is stranger than fiction...
I pick out a specific case from the hundreds that I have worked on in the past years and give you a brief rendition of the facts and outcome. And, I may cover related topics.

Taking advantage of situations that have occurred to others may lead you to say things to yourself like, “Boy I’m glad that didn’t happen to me!” Anyway, for sheer entertainment value, you’ll like them.

After reading the Blog, please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions or comments. Although I will not be taking comments on this blog, your feedback is welcomed.

NAES - Ethics

November 2021

Q.
Is it ethical to weasel out of a lawsuit knowing that three of your horses caused a muliti-car accident resulting in death? This accident could have been avoided if the owner of the horses would have maintained the fence, not allowing the horses to escape. To complicate matters, the defense attorneys and insurance companies had their own agendas.
