$201,000.00
Berks County PA

In September of 2015, the Berks County dog bite attorney received permission from a Berks County Judge to settle a Berks County PA dog attack claim for $201,000.00. A girl was visiting relatives in Fleetwood, Berks County when their mixed breed dog attacked her.

The surgeons at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Reading used stitches to close the dog bite facial wounds. The Berks County dog bite lawyer advised her parents to have their daughter evaluated by a plastic surgeon one year after the dog attack. Fortunately, the initial facial surgery was so successful that follow-up plastic surgery was not necessary.

Once the medical care had concluded, the Berks County dog attack lawyer obtained all of the medical records, as well as current photos of the permanent facial scar. The Berks County dog bite injury attorney was able to obtain the $201,000.00 Berks County dog attack settlement payout without having to file a Berks County dog bite lawsuit.

The Berks County dog bite accident lawyer maximized his client’s recovery by obtaining a tax free structured settlement annuity plan. This guaranteed the Berks County dog bite victim payments totaling over $177,000.00 – all without having to pay a penny in taxes!

$ 151,000.00                                  Berks County PA

In June of 2016, your Berks County dog attack lawyer settled a Berks County dog bite claim for $151,000.00. In June of 2013, a daughter was going on vacation with her boyfriend and asked her mother to take care of their Cane Corso. After doing some light house cleaning and feeding the dog, the Reading PA woman started to leave her daughter’s home. Suddenly, and without any provocation, the Cane Corso attacked her.

The Berks County dog bite victim sustained severe facial wounds which required immediate treatment at Reading Hospital. A plastic surgeon identified a 12.5 centimeter long laceration from her cheek into her neck, as well as a 1.5 centimeter long wound to her lip. Dead tissue was cut away and the physician performed surgery to repair and close the dog attack wounds. Due to the length of the facial laceration, multiple injections of Lidocaine were required.

Soon thereafter, a tetanus shot was administered and CT Scans were taken of the woman’s face and neck. Various medications were given to her via an IV. Upon her discharge, she was provided with specific instructions as to how to care for the facial wounds, particularly in reference to fighting off infections. Unfortunately, her problems worsened over the next two days and she returned to Reading Hospital. The Berks County dog bite victim was admitted for several days in order to receive treatment for the cellulitis which had developed in and about her dog attack wounds.

Once it became clear that she did not possess the legal acumen to represent herself, the Reading PA resident telephoned the attorney for dog attacks in Berks County Pennsylvania. Attorney Thomas J. Newell promptly provided a free home consultation for the innocent dog attack victim. He contacted State Officials in Harrisburg to see if there were any prior complaints of attacks by this particular Cane Corso.

The Berks County dog attack injury lawyer also hired an expert in the field of dog training and dog ownership. Through the expert’s research, it was discovered that the owners of the Cane Corso did not properly train/raise their adult male dog and that this negligent conduct undoubtedly played a major role in creating an aggressive, attack-minded dog.

Once the expert’s report was finalized, your lawyer for dog attacks in Berks County PA sent the report, medical records, bills, photographs and a 14 page “demand letter” to the defense analyzing his client’s injuries. In addition, he detailed the legal theories he was prepared to present to the Berks County Court of Common Pleas on behalf of the Reading dog bite victim. In response, the defendants’ homeowners insurance company agreed to pay a $151,000.00 settlement.

$41,000.00
Berks County PA

In August of 2015, your Berks County dog attack attorney negotiated a $41,000.00 Berks County dog bite settlement for a Berks County Pennsylvania resident. A man was walking near his home in Fleetwood PA when a pit bull and pit bull mix escaped from their home and attacked him.

The unleashed pit bulls bit him in the hand as he threw up his arms to protect his face. Two stitches were used to close one of the dog bite wounds and he was given antibiotics to prevent infection by the doctors at Lehigh Valley Hospital. The Berks County dog bite victim also received a tetanus shot.

The Berks County dog attack attorney filed a Right-To-Know request with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture in Harrisburg PA. He uncovered the fact that the Berks County pit bull owners had been cited several months earlier for violating the PA Dog Law. Their pit bulls had gotten loose and went after animals at a nearby farm. The Berks County Dog Warden, Edward Bunt, had filed a complete report on June 20, 2014 regarding the prior unprovoked dog attack by the defendants’ pitbulls.

Attorney Newell will come to your home in Berks County PA if you have a viable Berks County dog attack claim.

$ 15,000.00                                 Berks County PA

In June of 2013, the Berks County dog bite lawyer obtained permission from Berks County Orphans’ Court Judge Peter W. Schmehl to settle a PA dog bite claim for $15,000.00. In December of 2010, a nine year old girl was sledding in an alley in Reading Pennsylvania with her brother and sister. An adult male pit bull jumped over a fence at 215 Birch Street and attacked the Berks County Pennsylvania resident.

The Berks County dog attack victim was taken to Reading Hospital and Medical Center where doctors treated her dog bite wounds. The Reading PA resident was placed under general anesthesia so the surgeons could cut away the necrotic tissue and repair the dog attack lacerations to her right arm and right leg. She also underwent a series of rabies injections on four separate trips to the Reading Hospital & Medical Center.

The Berks County dog attack attorney was hired within a week of the Reading dog attack. Attorney Thomas J. Newell immediately sent letters of representation to the reckless pit bull owner, as well as the out-of-possession landlord. The pit bull owner was an uninsured renter who abandoned the property after the dog attack because she was being evicted for allegedly failing to pay her rent.

The insurance company for the landlord initially informed the Berks County dog attack lawyer that they would not be making any settlement payments to the Berks County dog bite victim. Their legal position was that the tenant had exclusive control over her two pit bulls and, therefore, the landlord could not be responsible for her negligent conduct.

The PA dog attack lawyers representing the landlord and the dog bite victim agreed to take sworn statements of the little girl, her mother and a witness. Information was gathered regarding this unprovoked Reading PA dog bite attack and allegations were made regarding the knowledge by the landlord’s workers that this tenant had two pit bulls at the residence. Eventually, the Berks County dog bite attorney convinced the landlord’s insurance company to make a $15,000.00 settlement offer in lieu of Attorney Newell filing a Berks County PA dog attack lawsuit.

The dog bite claim was officially concluded on July 25, 2013 when the lawyer for dog bites in Berks County PA filed a Proof of Deposit with the Berks County Court of Common Pleas Orphans’ Court Division. This established that a restricted minor’s account had been set up for the exclusive use of the Berks County dog bite victim.

Berks County Dog Bite Lawyer Files Lawsuit

On 4/4/17, your Berks County dog attack attorney filed a Writ of Summons versus two negligent defendants whose Akita attacked an innocent Berks County resident. The adult male Akita had a history of past aggressive acts and frequently fought with other dogs owned by the defendants. Their normal practice was to keep it outside housed in its kennel. Inexplicably, on the day in question, the Akita was allowed to roam in the house without any restraint. The woman had no idea that this vicious dog was in the house and had no way to defend herself from this unprovoked Berks County dog bite attack.
