It wasn’t a clear cut case because the chain stopped the sleeping pitbull just short of contacting my client when it charged her but my poor client was so scared when the pit bull attacked she tripped over a car lift and broke both wrists
HOUSTON (PRWEB) February 27, 2019
The law firm of Jerome O. Fjeld, PLLC has settled several significant dog bite and dog attack cases throughout the country and recently in Colorado, but Fjeld says that one of his most memorable cases was a case in which he obtained a $1.975 million dollar verdict from 12 conservative Harris County jurors in a case styled Cause No. 2010-75190, Stephanie Smith v. Rios Radiator & Mechanic Shop, filed in the 11th Judicial District, Harris County.
The jury verdict was rendered in the summer of 2012. In discussing the verdict with the jurors after the trial, they thought both attorneys did an outstanding job but Fjeld’s humanizing of the dog attack victim weighed heavily on their outcome. “It wasn’t a clear cut case because the chain stopped the sleeping pitbull just short of contacting my client when it charged her but my poor client was so scared when the pit bull attacked she tripped over a car lift and broke both wrists,” said Fjeld. The jurors were upset that the shop owner trivialized the matter and the fact that the Plaintiff had to have help bathing from her 20-year-old son. The case is also memorable for Fjeld due to the fact that after the trial a defendant started to refer his friends and family to Fjeld when they were in automobile accidents.
