How We Have Helped: Dog Bite Case Results

Case Name: Trent Doe v. Dog Owners
Summary: 13 year old Trent and his parents went to visit Dog Owners. Dog Owners owned a mixed breed dog. It had bitten the dog owners' son in the face before. The owners did not warn Trent or his parents about the dog's dangerous trait and history. When Trent reached to pet the dog, it bit Trent in the face near his mouth. The bite created an irregular, subcutaneous laceration that extended from the vermillion border. It took 14 stitches to close the wound. An infection caused cellulitis and abscess. Because of Trent's skin pigmentation (he is African American), he suffered keloid scarring. Trent's parents, who witnessed the attack, received a five figure settlement for their emotional distress claims.
Recovery Range: $100,000 - $250,000
