Man injured by spooked horse suing Dennis Quaid for scary sprinklers9/19/2012
If we're reading this right, it seems that Dennis Quaid is being sued for having a working sprinkler system. Equestrian Lester Wood, 70, has filed a lawsuit against the actor, claiming he was nearly killed while trotting on a horse around the actor's estate. Wood says that Quaid gave him permission to ride the trails on his property, and all was going swimmingly — until Quaid's sprinkler system activated, spooking Wood's horse so badly that it reared up and fell on top of him. Woods ended up in the hospital with critical injuries and blames Quaid for a flawed trail design and nearly $500,000 in medical bills. [Source]
Does this sound legitimate or like a frivolous lawsuit against a celebrity?
