Racehorses Apparently Die From Electrocution

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 13-Apr-2011

A pair of expensive racehorses collapsed and died last month under mysterious circumstances just before a race at in Britain, with speculation that electrocution was the cause.

 

The British Horseracing Authority is investigating the deaths of the horses, Fenix Two and Marching Song, but the deaths of the animals are consistent with electrocution. Marching Song was sired by Breeder's Cup winner War Chant.

 

So far, the cause seems to be from underground cables, combined with the wet ground and the horses' metal shoes, could have caused the deaths. One of the horse's owner said that some bystanders had complained that they were getting a mild shock from the horse.

 

The horses were out and readying for a race when suddenly, both stricken horses just dropped to the ground. Reports say that at least one other horse also went down, but did not die. Others reported that some of the horses seemed stuck to the ground and couldn't move normally. Afterward, reports say a rein on one of the dead horses looked burned, making it consistent with electrical shock.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
