$ 201,000.00                                      Erie County PA

On September 6, 2016, your Erie County dog attack lawyer obtained court approval to settle a North East PA dog bite claim for $201,000.00. Attorney Thomas J. Newell had previously filed with the Erie County Orphans’ Court a detailed Petition for Minor’s Compromise requesting permission from the Court to conclude the PA dog attack legal claim.

The parents of the young girl testified before Judge Elizabeth K. Kelly regarding their child’s injuries, her recovery and their plans concerning the dog attack settlement proceeds. The Erie County dog bite injury attorney provided the Court with documentation establishing that he had obtained the policy limits from the two homeowners insurance policies that covered this unprovoked dog attack.

The tax-free structured settlement plan will provide guaranteed payments of $42,000.00 at age 18; $52,000.00 at age 19; $62,000.00 at age 20 and $67,867.00 at age 21. The Erie County dog bite lawyer attached as an Exhibit to his Petition a document produced by A.M. Best Company proving that the annuity company had an A++ financial rating.

Regarding the Erie County dog attack itself, the little girl’s father took her with him when he went to visit a relative. A family friend’s mixed-breed dog was in the house at the time and suddenly jumped up and bit her on the left cheek. She was rushed from North East PA to a nearby hospital where sutures were needed to close the facial dog bite wounds. A couple of weeks later, the Erie County dog bite attorney received a call from the child’s mother and a free home consultation was scheduled.

Attorney Newell met with the parents in North East PA and provided them with a thorough legal analysis. The parents were very happy to report that no infections had developed and the dog bite wounds had healed without incident. At the insistence of the Erie County dog attack attorney, a final evaluation took place with an Erie County plastic surgeon one year post attack. It was the physician’s opinion that no additional surgery was needed.

Thomas J. Newell, Esquire then began the settlement negotiation process with the defendants’ insurance companies. He supplied them with a detailed demand package which included comparisons with another high-value dog bite claim which the Erie County dog attack injury lawyer had recently settled. Attorney Newell was especially pleased that he was able to obtain the maximum insurance company payments possible without have to file an Erie County Pennsylvania dog bite lawsuit against the girl’s relative and family friends.
