Dog Bite Results in Settlement of Nearly $100,000.00
We recently represented a young child who was bitten by a dog. Our client, at the time a four year old boy, was playing with a friend's dog in their house when it suddenly bit him in the face. After being rushed by his family to a local hospital, and then transported to a regional hospital and undergoing reconstructive surgery for a severe laceration injury, our client suffered from mild to moderate facial scarring. After considerable negotiations with the dog owner's insurance company, we were able to secure a settlement of nearly six figures. That money will be invested for the child until he reaches adult age, and he will have a nice nest egg to help pay for his college education or other needs once he is old enough.
