Pennsylvania dog bite attorney, Thomas Newell, obtained 2 settlements for a Monroe County rottweiler attack victim. On October 9, 2013, Attorney Newell filed Proofs of Deposit for Case #163-OC-2013 in the Orphans’ Court Division of the Monroe County Court of Common Pleas. Judge David J. Williamson had approved 2 Minor’s Compromise Petitions presented to the court in September on behalf of the Poconos dog bite victim.
As detailed in the Plaintiff’s Petitions for Minor’s Compromise filed on 9/4/13 and 9/6/13 in Stroudsburg, the young boy was and still is a resident of the Winona Lakes Development in East Stroudsburg PA. He was attacked by the same rottweiler owned by Rahkiah Lee-Harris on 6/22/10 and 6/13/12. On both occasions, the boy was an invited guest of the defendant’s sons and was playing basketball with them on their driveway. The rottweiler escaped from its pen and attacked him. The 2010 attack resulted in a dog bite wound to his left side. In 2012, the rottweiler bit him on both arms.
Attorney Newell attached as Exhibits to the Minor’s Compromise Petitions a copy of the medical records from Pocono Medical Center. The dog bite wounds were cleansed and the victim was given antibiotics. No stitches were needed and fortunately, no infections developed. The defendant’s homeowners insurance company paid a total settlement amount of $14,000.00. The net proceeds for the young boy have been placed in restricted minor’s accounts as per Judge Williamson’s Orders.
