While going on a walk through their neighborhood, a mother and son approached an unfenced front yard. Seemingly out of nowhere, a dog came around the corner of the house bounding at them. Before they could do anything, the dog latched onto the young boy and pulled at him. His mother pushed the dog away, but it bit her before the dog’s caretakers could intervene.

The young boy was fortunate in that he suffered no permanent disabilities. He did, however, experience great pain, underwent surgery, and was left with scarring and PTSD. Our attorneys were able to negotiate a settlement with the dog owners’ homeowners’ insurance to receive every penny of insurance proceeds available and arrange for the money to be invested to protect our client’s future when he comes of age.
