$ 39,000.00                                           Easton PA

In the summer of 2009, the Easton dog attack lawyer settled an Easton dog attack case for $39,000.00. In March of 2008, a woman was walking her husky with a leash on her front sidewalk just outside the City of Easton. Suddenly, and without warning, two unleashed and unsupervised dogs ran onto her front lawn and began to maul her Siberian Husky. The pit bull and German Shepherd knocked her family pet down and she feared for its life. As the woman tried to save her husky, she was bitten by the attacking dogs on her left hand and fell onto the sidewalk.

Ultimately, she was able to grab her dog and escape into their home. The husky was taken to a vet who stitched up the dog bite wounds. The Easton dog bite victim was driven to Lehigh Valley Hospital. X-rays showed that she had sustained a fracture to her left pinky finger. The Freemansburg PA resident was fitted with a splint and given a tetanus shot. She received follow-up care from a Lehigh Valley orthopedic surgeon.

The negligent dog owner was charged with multiple PA Dog Law violations, including Harboring a Dangerous Dog and Failing to Confine the pit bull and German Shepherd. The attorney for dog attacks in Easton assisted the Northampton County Dog Warden in her prosecution before a Lehigh Valley District Justice. The dog owner was convicted on all counts. His appeal to the trial court was unsuccessful and he was again found guilty in November of 2008.

The husband of the Easton dog bite victim spent over $2,000.00 to erect a fence in the backyard as a result of the fears his wife had regarding being attacked again by these vicious dogs. She also underwent approximately six months of mental health counseling. Once all of her medical and mental health care ended, the lawyer for dog bites in Easton PA ordered and obtained all of the medical documentation, veterinary records and photographs of the dog bite victim, her dog and the fence her husband had built.

The defendant dog owner was a renter. Attorney Newell acquired records that proved that he was previously cited for allowing his dogs to run loose. The Easton dog bite lawyer made an additional legal liability claim versus the property owner for failing to take appropriate measures to ensure his renter would follow the PA Dog Law. In the spring of 2009, the lawyer for dog attacks in Easton forwarded a seven-page legal analysis position paper to the defense adjusters. This document itemized the injuries sustained by the Lehigh Valley resident, as well as identified the various legal theories of recovery versus the dog owner and his landlord. The Easton dog attack claim was quickly settled without Attorney Thomas J. Newell having to file an Easton dog bite lawsuit.
