Once a vet is sued, the control of the situation goes to his insurance company and their lawyers. They (insurance lawyers) always want to settle and pretty much will insist on doing so. That is what happened in this case.

So the rider won his lawsuit because the vet's insurance settled rather than go to court. This is a part of the insurance industry that I fail to understand. How can it be cheaper to settle out of court by paying anyone anything when the facts of the case show clearly that the person suing is the one at fault than it would be to defend the suit successfully and recover all suit related costs as part of the decision?

Perhaps someone in insurance can explain this.
