$ 135,255.27                                           Poconos PA

In the fall of 2011, the Poconos dog bite attorney obtained approval from Monroe County Judge Linda W. Miller to settle a Monroe County Pennsylvania dog attack claim for $135,255.27. A Poconos resident had agreed to volunteer for a charity event and dropped her daughter off at her sister’s home near Stroudsburg PA.

The homeowner owned a mixed breed dog that had a history of past aggressive acts. Unfortunately, the aunt did not properly restrain the vicious dog. It got loose and bit the little girl in the face. The Monroe County dog bite victim was rushed to Pocono Medical Center in East Stroudsburg PA.

The Poconos dog attack lawyer provided a free home consultation to the Monroe County PA family. Attorney Thomas J. Newell advised the girl’s mother to have the young child evaluated by a respected board certified plastic surgeon. This expert had performed corrective facial surgery on many other Pennsylvania dog attack victims represented by the Poconos dog bite injury attorney. Ultimately, it was decided that the initial surgery was expertly performed. Therefore, no follow-up plastic surgery was necessary.

Medical records and billing statements, as well as past and current photographs were assembled and formatted in a detailed settlement demand package prepared by your Poconos dog bite accident lawyer. Attorney Newell was very happy to have obtained this large PA dog bite settlement without having to file a Monroe County dog attack lawsuit versus his client’s aunt.

The Poconos dog attack attorney presented a detailed Minor’s Compromise Petition to the Monroe County Orphans’ Court. Judge Miller approved the tax-free structured settlement annuity proposed by Attorney Newell. This financial plan maximized the total economic benefit available to the Monroe County PA dog bite victim.

$ 117,460.00                                           Poconos PA

In the fall of 2012, your Poconos dog bite lawyer received permission from Judge Williamson of the Monroe County Orphans’ Court to conclude a $117,460.00 Poconos dog attack settlement through a guaranteed tax-free structured settlement annuity. In the summer of 2011, a two-year old girl was being babysat by her grandparents in Monroe County Pennsylvania.

The girl’s mother was in the hospital being treated for a medical emergency. The homeowners owned a Lab that had bitten people several times in the past. The vicious dog had even bitten the grandmother two to three times earlier. Despite this past history of vicious propensities, the grandparents did not lock the dog up or take any steps to separate it from the young child.

While unsupervised and unrestrained, the aggressive dog attacked the little girl and bit her in the face. The Monroe County PA dog attack victim was first taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. The child was then transferred to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital where she was placed under general anesthesia. Surgery was performed on her facial dog bite wounds. Fortunately, she was able to recover without any infections setting in.

Your Poconos dog attack attorney met with the little girl and her mother in the Poconos in February of 2012. After Attorney Thomas J. Newell was hired, he provided the defense adjuster with a lengthy and detailed legal analysis of the applicability of the PA Dog Law, as well as a potential punitive damage claim. The Monroe County PA dog bite lawyer obtained all of the child’s medical records, billing statements and photographs and sent them to the homeowners insurance company.

Several months later, the parties agreed that the defense would pay their liability policy limit and the lawyer for dog bites in the Poconos filed a Petition for Minor’s Compromise with the Monroe County Court of Common Pleas in Stroudsburg Pennsylvania. Attorney Newell was happy to have obtained the maximum settlement amount possible without the need to sue the girl’s grandparents. In addition, the Poconos dog bite accident attorney was able to structure the annuity so as to allow tax-free payments to be disbursed to the PA dog attack victim at ages 18, 19, 20 and 21 – just in time for college expenses.

$ 65,000.00                                       Poconos PA

On 12/28/16, The Honorable David J. Williamson of the Monroe County Court of Common Pleas signed an Order approving a $65,000.00 Monroe County dog attack settlement.  On the previous day, the Poconos dog bite injury attorney had filed a detailed 9 page Minor’s Compromise Petition setting forth the facts of this unprovoked dog attack and the injuries sustained by the innocent victim.

In the spring of 2015, a young child was invited to his friend’s house to play on their trampoline. The homeowner owned a male bulldog that had previously attacked a family member on at least 3 prior occasions. Notwithstanding this undisputed history of prior aggressive acts, the owner of the bulldog decided to let it outside while the kids were jumping on the trampoline. The unrestrained vicious dog immediately pursued and bit the boy on his right leg and buttocks.

Given the severity of the attack, the child was rushed to Pocono Medical Center in East Stroudsburg PA. He was injected with Lidocaine. Ten stitches were needed to close one dog bite wound and two sutures were applied to another. His mother was given prescriptions for several medicines and was warned about being ever vigilant for any signs of infections.

The lawyer for dog bites in the Poconos was called several days later. Attorney Newell immediately traveled to their Stroudsburg Pennsylvania home and laid out a detailed plan to aggressively represent the child’s personal injury claim. In the meantime, 2 follow-up appointments took place with the boy’s pediatrician. He was given a tetanus shot and all of the stitches were removed. A Poconos chiropractor also treated him on 3 occasions with massage therapy and chiropractic manipulations.

Once Attorney Newell had concluded settlement negotiations, he did everything possible to maximize his client’s financial recovery. He insisted that the boy’s settlement money be placed in a tax-free structured settlement with an A+XV financial company as rated by Best Company. The Poconos dog attack injury attorney provided Judge Williamson with all of the documents necessary to show the financial merit of this plan.

$ 55,000.00                                      Poconos PA

On 4/25/17, your Poconos dog attack lawyer obtained a $55,000.00 dog bite settlement for a man who was attacked by a mixed breed dog in Mount Pocono PA. He was delivering heating oil to a regular customer when their unsupervised and unleashed family pet attacked him. The vicious dog jumped up and bit him multiple times in his chest and abdomen. The only way this assault was stopped was when the homeowner grabbed a large branch and used it to move the dog off of the innocent victim.

Upon his arrival at an area Redi-Care Center, the medical personnel identified six separate dog bite wounds. A tetanus shot was administered and anti-infection medication was prescribed. Follow-up medical care was required when the service technician had problems with nausea, vomiting and numbness/pain in the area of the dog bite wounds. When he returned several days later, the medical staff was concerned that he might have developed an infection. He was immediately transferred to Easton Hospital.

The ER physician ordered a CT Scan to be taken of his abdomen and pelvis, as well as various blood tests. Multiple medications were administered, including Percocet, Morphine and Keflex. After several more visits to the Red-Care Center, the Monroe County dog bite victim was discharged from all future medical care. Issues regarding nightmares and flashbacks slowly lessened with the passage of time.

The attorney for dog bites in the Poconos promptly ordered his client’s medical records, medical bills and current photographs depicting some residual scarring. Attorney Newell forwarded all of the evidence, along with a 12 page settlement demand letter detailing the myriad of legal claims available to the Monroe County dog attack victim. The Bangor PA resident was extremely happy that the Poconos dog attack injury lawyer was able to obtain a substantial dog bite settlement within six months of this vicious animal attack.

$ 42,500.00                                         Poconos PA

In the spring of 2014, the Poconos dog attack attorney settled a Monroe County Pennsylvania dog bite claim for $42,500.00. The previous summer, a woman was walking her Golden Retriever in a public park near Route 611. An older woman with allegedly serious health problems was walking her two adult Akitas. She was unable to control her dogs and they broke free and began to attack the Golden Retriever.

In the meantime, the owner of the Akitas stood by and did nothing to stop/prevent this vicious mauling. The owner of the Retriever was knocked down by the aggressive dogs and was bitten by the Akitas when she tried to rescue her dog. The assault was only ended due to the intervention of a neighbor who was able to grab the leashes of the Akitas and take them back to the dog owner’s garage.

The Poconos resident was rushed to Pocono Medical Center in East Stroudsburg Pennsylvania. The Emergency Room doctor used one-half dozen stitches to close the dog bite wounds to her arm and hand. He also administered a tetanus shot and prescribed anti-infection antibiotics. The Poconos dog bite injury lawyer received a telephone call from the Monroe County dog attack victim several days after the horrific ordeal.

Attorney Newell met with the Poconos dog bite victim in the comfort of her Monroe County PA residence. During the course of this free home consultation, the attorney for dog attacks in the Poconos outlined all of the steps he would take to maximize the economic value of this PA dog bite claim. He promptly spoke with the Pennsylvania Dog Warden who agreed to prosecute the defendant dog owner pursuant to the PA Dog Law.

A detailed three-page Affidavit was prepared by the Poconos dog attack injury lawyer. The information provided in this legal document allowed the PA Dog Warden to file charges of Harboring a Dangerous Dog and Failure to Confine versus the owner of the Akitas. A guilty plea in response to the PA Dog Law citations was entered by the defendant just weeks after the unprovoked animal attack.

Attorney Newell used these convictions to buttress his allegation that the dog owner’s conduct was reckless and would support a punitive damage claim if the homeowners insurance company failed to provide a generous settlement offer. The attorney for dog attacks in the Poconos was pleased to have obtained the $42,500.00 dog bite settlement without having to file a Monroe County PA dog attack lawsuit versus one of his client’s neighbors.

$ 32,806.00                                       Poconos PA

In March of 2017, the Poconos dog bite lawyer obtained a $32,806.00 dog attack settlement for a Pike County resident. The woman was walking outside of her townhouse community when she was mauled by a neighbor’s pit bull. This dog had a history of prior aggressive acts. However, on the day of this unprovoked animal attack, it was able to shake off its muzzle and leash and attack the helpless victim without any restraints.

The PA dog attack victim received medical care for dog bite wounds to her chest/abdomen, arm and hands. She was given a tetanus shot and various medications were prescribed. When the pit bull’s teeth penetrated her skin in multiple areas, it greatly increased the possibility of her dog attack lacerations becoming infected. She received follow-up medical attention from an area nephrologist.

Soon thereafter, the woman telephoned the Poconos dog bite injury attorney to schedule a free home consultation. Attorney Newell immediately made plans to meet with her in the comfort of her Pike County residence. He detailed the process by which he would assume full responsibility for all insurance-related issues. Thomas J. Newell, Esquire urged his client to continue to treat with her mental health specialist. The woman was experiencing problems with nightmares and flashbacks regarding the dog bite attack.

Once all of the medical treatment had concluded, the lawyer for dog attacks in the Poconos ordered and paid for copies of all of her medical documents, records and bills. He also obtained current photos proving the existence of some permanent scarring. A detailed settlement demand package was sent to the homeowners insurance company that insured the negligent dog owner. Attorney Thomas J. Newell argued that proof of prior vicious propensities increased the value of the PA dog bite case.

After a series of telephone calls and letters, the Poconos dog attack injury attorney was able to convince the defendant’s insurance carrier to settle the Pike County PA dog attack claim for $32,806.00. The innocent animal bite victim was very happy not only with the settlement amount, but also pleased that Attorney Newell concluded the case without having to file a lawsuit against her neighbor.

$ 23,828.00                                      Poconos PA

In January of 2017, your lawyer for dog attacks in the Poconos finalized a $23,838.00 PA dog bite settlement with the homeowners insurance company of a Milford Pennsylvania man. The negligent defendant was temporarily housing a friend’s pit bull. He took the dog in – even though he knew the pit bull had bitten someone just two months earlier. Nonetheless, a prudent person would lock the pit bull up if any guests were expected at the home.

The defendant’s father came over to his home for a planned visit. His son failed to properly secure the pit bull and it lunged at the elderly man biting his face. The Poconos resident was rushed to Port Jervis, New York where he received medical care at Bon Secours Hospital. The doctor cleaned out the facial wounds and used ten stitches to close the lacerations. Various antibiotics were prescribed as well. There was a significant concern that the dog bite wounds might become infected.

The Poconos dog bite attorney spoke over the telephone with the Pike County PA dog attack victim. Attorney Newell promptly scheduled a free home consultation at which time he explained the legal process and the steps he would take to obtain a fair and appropriate Poconos dog attack settlement. In the meantime, the dog bite victim had the ten sutures removed by his family doctor. Fortunately, the medication worked wonders and no infections developed.

Once all of the medical treatment had ended, the Poconos dog bite injury lawyer ordered the medical records, medical bills and current photographs of the elderly gentleman. The only remaining vestige of the unprovoked dog attack was a tiny lump of scar tissue remaining in the victim’s lower lip. No mental health care treatment was required.

Attorney Newell then sent the evidence to the defense adjuster, along with a lengthy legal analysis. He laid out a legal basis for a punitive damage claim as a result of the defendant’s reckless decision to not crate or otherwise contain the vicious pit bull. Ultimately, the homeowner’s insurance company accepted the analysis of the Poconos dog bite accident attorney and a $23,828.00 dog attack payout was agreed upon.

Poconos Dog Bite Lawyer Provides Free Consultation

On 9/7/16, your Poconos dog attack attorney provided a free legal analysis to an East Stroudsburg PA man whose private development is being terrorized by dogs owned by a reckless man. His two large dogs are never confined to his property and constantly defecate all over the community.

When the man tried to videotape this blatant violation of the PA Dog Law, the dog owner attacked him. The Pennsylvania State Police were called to the scene. Hopefully, criminal charges and PA Dog Law citations will be issued to the dog owner. Monroe County Dog Warden George Nixon is also investigating this horrific situation.
