Negligence / Premises Liability – Unsafe Training Conditions at Race Track

Our client was an exercise jockey at horse racing facility. Repeated requests to change the training conditions at the race track for better safety of the jockeys were ignored by the race track. During a training exercise, our client was thrown off his horse and suffered spinal fractures leading to paralysis. The cause of the accident was directly related of the unsafe conditions which had been ignored and un-remedied by the race track.

Outcome:

This case settled prior to trial for a confidential amount.
