As she was walking her dog in her residential complex, our client was attacked and severely bitten on the hand by a female schnauzer/Wheaten terrier that was known to be dangerous by neighbors. Both the dog owners and the landlord refused to remove the dog up until that time, despite prior attacks. After our firm became involved, the dog was promptly removed and placed in another home to ensure resident safety.
Our client suffered a crush bite and sustained a laceration to her finger, with six stitches, and had sharp pain in her dominant hand that did not heal. Our firm secured a $21,000 settlement for the deserving client a month prior to trial.
