$ 32,806.00                                        Milford PA

On 3/27/17, the Milford dog bite attorney produced a $32,806.00 dog attack settlement for a Milford PA resident. Last year, a woman was taking some trash out to place in the community dumpster when she saw a neighbor who was walking a pit bull. Suddenly, and without any warning, the pit bull shook off its muzzle, leash and collar and directly pursued and attacked the helpless victim.

The pit bull bit the woman’s chest, stomach and arm. It latched onto her scarf and dragged her to the ground. The pit bull owner stood nearby and yelled at her dog. She never physically intervened, thereby letting the innocent and defenseless woman fend for herself. Fortunately, a gentleman was nearby and came to her rescue. After multiple kicks to the dog’s body, the pit bull released its grip and the Pike County resident was able to escape.

The Milford Pennsylvania woman was treated at a nearby hospital for multiple dog bite wounds to her arm, both hands and chest/abdomen. After the dog attack lacerations were cleansed, a tetanus shot was administered and anti-infection medication was prescribed. Follow-up care was received from a nephrologist. The Augmentin that she took prevented any infection from developing and the dog bite wounds healed without incident.

In the meantime, the Pike County resident phoned the lawyer for dog attacks in Milford PA. Attorney Thomas J. Newell set up a free home consultation in the comfort of her Poconos home. He explained how he would handle all insurance related issues and urged her to continue to receive the mental health care which she had just recently initiated.

After the PA animal attack, the innocent dog bite victim had difficulty sleeping, dealt with stress and anxiety issues, and had serious problems with nightmares and flashbacks where she relived the horrific pit bull attack. The Pike County resident also had to face her own mortality because she feared she was going to be killed while trying to fight off this vicious and uncontrollable animal.

Once his client’s medical and mental health care had concluded. the Milford dog attack injury attorney ordered, paid for and obtained her medical bills and medical records. Current photographs were also sent to him. Attorney Newell then put together a detailed 10-page settlement evaluation letter, in addition to a supplemental 6 page report. These documents detailed the injuries sustained, as well as the legal arguments that supported a significant personal injury recovery. The Milford PA woman was pleased with the amount of the Pike County dog attack settlement. She was also very happy that the homeowner’s insurance company paid the money without a dog attack lawsuit being filed at the Pike County Courthouse in Milford.

$ 23,828.00                                             Milford PA

On 1/23/17, your Milford dog bite lawyer obtained a $23,828.00 Pike County PA dog bite settlement payout on behalf of a man who was bitten by a pit bull. The elderly gentleman was visiting one of his sons in Milford PA. The son was temporarily housing a friend’s pit bull. Without any warning, the vicious dog lunged at the man and bit his face.

The Pike County Pennsylvania resident was driven to Bon Secours Hospital in Port Jervis, New York. The Emergency Room physician cleansed the facial wounds and cut away the dead tissue. Ten sutures were needed to close the dog attack facial lacerations. Antibiotics were prescribed and he was given medical literature which detailed specific signs he should be on the lookout for regarding infections.

The PA dog bite victim followed up with his family doctor around 10 days later. The stitches were removed and the facial wounds appeared to be healing quite nicely. No further medical treatment was required. In the meantime, the elderly gentleman spoke with Attorney Newell regarding the pit bull attack. The Milford dog attack attorney provided the man with a free home consultation in the comfort of his Pike County Pennsylvania residence.

Thomas J. Newell, Esquire then ordered his client’s medical bills, medical records and obtained current photos. Of particular note was a small lump of scar tissue that remained in his client’s lower lip. Information was obtained which identified a prior attack by this pit bull just two months earlier. Soon thereafter, the lawyer for dog bites in Milford PA sent a detailed demand letter to the homeowner’s insurance company adjuster who represented the victim’s son.

Attorney Newell argued that if no pre-litigation settlement was reached, he would file a Complaint in the Pike County Court of Common Pleas. The legal document would include a claim for punitive damages. The failure of the homeowner to keep the vicious pit bull locked up and away from invited guests was both inexcusable and reckless. The Milford dog bite injury attorney was pleased to have reached an out-of-court settlement that benefited both his client and the defendant son.
