$200,000 Dog Bite

July 16th, 2022 Results

A 12 year old girl was bitten in the face by a dog owned by family friends.  She required plastic surgery.  We argued that the dog had dangerous propensities and previously nipped or lunged at others.  This was denied by the dog owners who also argued that the bite caused no residual scarring.  The case settled at mediation prior to trial.
