PA dog bite lawyer, Thomas J. Newell, Esquire has successfully obtained a $75,000.00 settlement for a dog attack victim from West Chester PA. On October 1, 2013, Judge Ann Marie Wheatcraft of the Chester County Court of Common Pleas, case #2012-11174, approved Attorney Newell’s Petition for Minor’s Compromise. The 7 year-old dog bite victim is guaranteed a total payout of $86,750.00 pursuant to the structured settlement annuity plan presented by Attorney Newell.
As described in the plaintiffs’ 10 page Complaint and 9 page Petition for Minor’s Compromise filed of record with the Chester County Court of Common Pleas, the little girl had visited her aunt’s home in West Chester on 4/24/11. The woman’s 2 Labrador Retrievers suddenly, and without warning, mauled her. The Chester County dog bite victim needed 6 staples and 10 stitches to close the dog bite wounds to her scalp, right shoulder and neck. Fortunately, she was left with only a small scar on her shoulder. Attorney Newell recommended that a plastic surgeon examine the scar a year after the dog attack. The physician concluded that plastic surgery was not necessary.
Attorney Newell filed a lawsuit versus the alleged negligent dog owner after her homeowners insurance company failed to make a settlement offer that was acceptable to the victim’s parents. After eight months of litigation, the defense changed its analysis of the case and offered the $75,000.00 settlement.
