$ 19,000.00                              Delaware County PA

In October of 2017, the Delaware County dog bite lawyer obtained a $19,000.00 dog attack settlement for a plumber who was making a service call for homeowners in Villanova Pennsylvania. The technician’s employer had called the property owners an hour before his arrival to prepare them for the upcoming visit. A woman answered the ring of the front door bell and opened the door for him to enter.

Inexplicably, the property owner had chosen not to put her mixed breed dog away in a locked room or dog cage. Instead, the unleashed dog had free run of the home and launched an unprovoked dog attack upon the stunned dog bite victim. He was bitten in the area of his private parts and was in excruciating pain. Fortunately, his thick work pants diminished the potential seriousness of the canine attack.

Medical care was provided at a Philadelphia area Urgent Care Center. The dog bite wound was cleansed, a tetanus shot was administered and he was given a prescription for Augmentin to ward off infection. A follow-up medical evaluation was provided by his family doctor. Several days later, your Delaware County dog attack attorney provided a free consultation to the service technician.

Once all of the medical treatment had concluded, Attorney Newell ordered, paid for and obtained his client’s medical records and medical bills. Workers’ Compensation provided a lien statement for all the expenses it incurred due to this Pennsylvania dog bite attack. Photographs of the injured area were accumulated.

The Delaware County dog attack lawyer forwarded all of the aforementioned evidence, along with a five-page settlement demand letter to the dog owners’ insurance company. The defense adjuster agreed with Attorney Newell that the unprovoked animal attack was completely avoidable. There was no dispute that the homeowners acted in a negligent fashion. The only remaining issue was what amount to properly compensate the PA dog bite victim.

After some serious negotiations, the adjuster representing the defendants relented to Thomas J. Newell, Esquire’s evaluation and a $19,000.00 Delaware County dog bite settlement was agreed to. The Delaware County dog bite attorney obtained a discount on the Workers’ Compensation subrogation lien. Attorney Newell was able to finalize the settlement process within six months of the Pennsylvania dog attack.

On 6/8/18, the Delaware County dog attack lawyer received a telephone call from a woman after a dog attack in Upper Darby PA the previous day. The woman and her son were outside their home enjoying a beautiful day when an unleashed large black dog attacked both of them, knocking them down onto the concrete sidewalk.

Both victims received treatment at a local hospital. Follow-up medical care is planned with their family doctor. The Upper Darby Police are investigating this unprovoked dog attack. Hopefully, PA Dog Law charges will be filed versus the negligent dog owner.
