Open and honest with others, we show respect and empathy however challenging the situation – demonstrated by our multi-award winning claims team.  Doing the right thing makes for a fair-minded, rewarding environment and makes work and life better for all.

Examples or Scenarios

The Insured provided plaintiff with horse riding lessons during which a safety vest worn by the plaintiff failed to deploy properly and created a loud noise which spooked the horse. The plaintiff was thrown from the horse and suffered fractured vertebrae that rendered them paraplegic. The plaintiff made a demand for the $1M policy limit. The Insured had no information that the horse had any dangerous propensities prior to the incident and was considered suitable for a beginner rider.  The plaintiff acknowledged they rode horses and had had prior accidents and injuries. Defense counsel viewed the case as defensible given jurisdictional law which established the plaintiff’s accident as falling within the inherent risks of horseback riding. Matter settled for $50,000.
