Dog Bite Yields $350,000.00 Settlement
We recently represented a minor child who was bit in the face by a dog who had been rescued from a local animal shelter. Our client sustained injuries to his face which required surgery. The insurance company argued that our client's mother was at fault for failing to supervise the child, thereby attempting to avoid the clear law in Illinois regarding animal bites. Ultimately, we prevailed and were able to reach a very sizeable settlement for this young man. This was one of the largest dog bite settlements we have ever obtained and is significantly higher than the settlements normally seen on these types of cases. We are proud of results like this but most of all, we are happy to be able to provide some significant compensation to our client which he will be able to use for future expenditures such as additional medical care and education costs.
