 $ 202,695.95                                Carbon County PA

In January of 2015, the Carbon County dog attack lawyer negotiated a $202,695.95 settlement for a Carbon County dog attack case. A young man was skateboarding near his home when an elderly woman was trying to walk two adult pit bulls. The pit bulls broke free from her control and ran across a neighbor’s property and onto the street.

The Carbon County dog attack victim tried to defend himself against the attacking pit bulls. The pit bull owner stood by and did nothing to help the young man as she “had a bad leg.” Finally, the Carbon County dog bite victim was able to control the dogs by grabbing their leashes.

The Albrightsville PA resident was taken by ambulance to Gnaden Heutten Memorial Hospital in Lehighton PA. The Carbon County dog attack victim had multiple dog bite wounds which required stitches to close. He was given several injections of Lidocaine and a tetanus shot.

The Carbon County dog attack lawyer obtained evidence regarding prior attacks by the defendants’ pit bulls. In 2013, the defendant husband lost control of the pit bulls and they attacked a jogger in Albrightsville Pennsylvania. The lawyer for dog bites in Carbon County spoke with the jogger’s husband.

Armed with proof of multiple violations of the PA Dog Law, the Carbon County dog bite lawyer argued to the dog owner’s insurance company that punitive damages would be awarded if the PA dog attack case were brought before a Carbon County jury. Less than a year after he was hired, the Carbon County dog bite injury lawyer convinced the homeowner’s insurance company to pay $202,695.95 – all without having to file a Carbon County dog attack lawsuit.

 $ 22,880.00                                   Carbon County PA

In November of 2012, the Carbon County dog bite attorney obtained approval from a Carbon County Judge to settle a Carbon County PA dog bite claim for $22,880.00. On April 8, 2010, an Albrightsville PA resident alighted from a school bus in a Carbon County private development community. As she was walking on a pedestrian pathway, she was passed by a person walking the defendants’ German Shepherd.

Suddenly, and without warning, the vicious dog jumped up and tried to bite the girl’s face. The Carbon County dog attack victim instinctively threw up her right arm to protect her face. She sustained puncture wounds to her right arm and right wrist. The Albrightsville PA dog bite victim was rushed to Gnaden Huetten Memorial Hospital in Lehighton Pennsylvania.

Since it could not be determined whether the German Shepherd was properly vaccinated, the Carbon County dog bite victim was given the first of a series of 5 rabies vaccine injections. Her family had to drive her back to Gnaden Huetten Memorial Hospital on 4 other occasions to complete the rabies vaccination sequence.

On June 30, 2010, the Carbon County dog bite injury attorney attended a District Justice hearing in Carbon County where the negligent dog owners were found guilty of violating Section 305 of the PA Dog Law – “Failure to Confine.” They also violated the Pennsylvania Rabies Prevention and Control in Domestic Animals and Wildlife Act by failing to have the German Shepherd properly vaccinated for rabies.

The Carbon County dog bite lawyer obtained a signed Affidavit from a Carbon County resident who described how she was attacked by this same German Shepherd in the summer of 2009. This investigative material, along with the lack of a rabies vaccination allowed the Carbon County dog bite attorney to make a viable claim for punitive damages.

Attorney Newell filed a Minor’s Compromise Petition with the Carbon County Court of Common Pleas. The Carbon County dog attack attorney attended a hearing in Jim Thorpe PA before Senior Judge Richard W. Webb who approved the Carbon County dog attack settlement.

Carbon County Dog Bite Attorney Provides Advice

On February 6, 2017, your Carbon County dog attack lawyer provided an additional free analysis to the Lake Harmony pit bull attack victim. As Attorney Newell recommended, the investigating police officer charged the pit bull owner with “Harboring a Dangerous Dog” in violation of the PA Dog Law. The District Justice Hearing was held last week in Carbon County Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately, the presiding judge did not rule on the criminal charge, but instead informed those present that he desired to do some additional research on the Pennsylvania Dog Law before arriving at a decision. The Carbon County PA dog bite lawyer reviewed with the victim her potential legal options. If an appeal is filed after the D.J. ruling, a trial will be held in Jim Thorpe PA in front of a Carbon County Court of Common Pleas judge.
