$ 152,000.00                                  Quakertown PA

In May of 2015, your Quakertown dog bite attorney obtained approval from the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas to settle a PA dog attack claim after a boy was mauled in Richlandtown Pennsylvania in 2013. The child was riding his bike on a street near his home while talking to his friends. Suddenly, and without any warning, an unleashed Golden Retriever pursued and attacked him.

The Bucks County PA dog attack victim was rushed to St. Luke’s Hospital in Quakertown Pennsylvania. A plastic surgeon was called in to perform surgery on the facial dog bite wounds. Due to a lack of timely cooperation on the part of the dog owners, the boy also endured receiving rabies injections on four different occasions. In addition to dealing with his physical wounds, the boy suffered from nightmares, flashbacks and difficulty sleeping.

Your Quakertown dog attack attorney provided the boy’s family with a free home consultation at their Bucks County residence. After Attorney Thomas J. Newell was hired, he obtained a copy of all the medical records, medical billing statements and photographs of the facial dog attack wounds. The lawyer for dog bites in Quakertown PA requested that the boy be examined by a board certified plastic surgeon one year after the unprovoked animal attack to ensure that no further plastic surgery was required.

Once Attorney Newell had reached a settlement agreement with the dog owner’s homeowners insurance company, he employed the services of a financial expert to formulate a structured settlement annuity package that would provide tax-free payments at ages 18, 19, 20 and 21. The attorney for dog attacks in Quakertown Pennsylvania presented a detailed Petition for Minor’s Compromise to Judge McMaster of the Bucks County Orphans’ Court. The judge approved the settlement on 5/21/15. The Quakertown dog bite injury lawyer was especially happy to have settled the Bucks County dog attack claim without having his young client relive the ordeal by testifying at trial in Doylestown PA.

$ 33,500.00                                        Quakertown PA

In October of 2016, the Quakertown dog attack lawyer obtained a $33,500.00 dog attack settlement after an unprovoked dog bite settlement for a man who was living in Quakertown Pennsylvania. The gentleman was working in Philadelphia laying cable lines in a public alleyway. One of the residents owned a pit bull that was unleashed and unsupervised while running around in its backyard.

The pit bull jumped up over the fence and bit the worker on his right arm. He was treated at St. Luke’s Hospital in Quakertown. The ER physician noted three areas of full thickness lacerations over his right upper arm and biceps. The dog attack wounds were thoroughly cleansed and irrigated. Antibiotic ointment was applied to help ward off infection. A tetanus shot was also given to the pit bull attack victim.

Two days later, the worker returned to St. Luke’s Quakertown Hospital where he was admitted because an infection had developed in his right arm. Various medications were administered intravenously. He was also injected with Enoxaparin sodium and released the following day. Less than two weeks later, the attorney for dog bites in Quakertown Pennsylvania met with the dog attack victim and laid out a detailed plan to maximize the value of his PA dog bite claim.

Attorney Thomas J. Newell obtained video of the pit bull jumping up and over the dog owner’s fence. He forwarded that evidence to the homeowner’s insurance company, along with his client’s medical records and scar photographs. The Quakertown dog bite accident lawyer strenuously argued that his client would be entitled to a punitive damage recovery. Attorney Newell averred that if the case went to trial due to the pit bull owner’s failure to have her dog up-to-date with its rabies shots, the jury could award the gentleman punitive damages. The pit bull victim was very happy to have received the $32,500.00 settlement without having to to through the ordeal of a personal injury lawsuit in Bucks County PA.

$ 17,500.00                                    Quakertown PA

In July of 2017, the attorney for dog bites in Quakertown PA concluded a Bucks County dog attack legal claim for a $17,500.00 settlement. A Lehigh Valley woman decided to go to a Bucks County animal rescue shelter to see if she could adopt a mixed breed dog. The rescue organization assured her that the Cane Corso/Mastiff mix was “sweet.” She made a specific appointment to meet the dog and was greeted by a volunteer upon her arrival.

The woman was instructed to enter the dog pen where the mixed breed canine was on a leash controlled by a handler. The Northampton County resident was told to offer the dog a treat. Without moving forward or taking any sudden movement, the victim was nonetheless attacked by the Cane Corso/Mastiff mix. She was rushed to the Emergency Room Department of St. Luke’s Quakertown Hospital. A large laceration to her right wrist/palm was examined by the ER doctor.

The dog bite wound required immediate care which included: irrigating the laceration, an injection of Lidocaine, the application of seven stitches and a tetanus shot. Prescriptions for pain and anti-infection were given to the Bath PA resident. Follow-up medical care was rendered by her family doctor who referred the woman to an orthopedic specialist. The expert applied a splint and advised his client to continue taking the antibiotics and pain medication.

In the meantime, Attorney Newell received a call regarding this unprovoked dog attack. The Quakertown dog bite lawyer provided a free home consultation just five days post attack. He promptly forwarded a letter of legal representation to the animal rescue facility and monitored his client’s medical treatment. The orthopedic doctor referred his patient to physical therapy sessions which she attended for approximately three weeks.

Unfortunately, a compromise agreement was initially unable to be agreed upon. The Quakertown dog bite injury attorney then filed a Writ of Summons versus the shelter. Attorney Thomas J. Newell entered into settlement negotiations with the defense attorney. Ultimately, the $17,500.00 Quakertown dog attack settlement was then agreed to prior to the filing of the PA dog bite Complaint.

In January of 2009, your Quakertown dog attack attorney negotiated a Bucks County dog bite settlement for a woman who had been attacked in 2008. The Bucks County resident had visited a farm just outside of Quakertown to spend time with her friend and her friend’s horse that was boarded at the farm. Unfortunately, the owner of the farm had an aggressive German Shepherd mixed breed dog that was unleashed and unsupervised with full access to all areas of the farm.

Without any warning, the vicious dog snuck up from behind and bit the unsuspecting victim on the leg. She was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. The ER doctor administered a tetanus shot and used 4 stitches to close the dog attack wound. The lawyer for dog attacks in Quakertown PA provided a free home consultation to the woman in the comfort of her Bucks County residence.

Attorney Newell obtained all of the medical records, medical bills and dog bite wound photographs. He sent them to the defense adjuster, along with a detailed analysis of the applicability of the PA Dog Law, particularly the Failure to Confine Statute. The Quakertown dog attack injury attorney was pleased to have successfully resolved the Bucks County PA dog bite claim within four months of being hired.

$$$$$                                                Quakertown PA

In the spring of 2009, your Quakertown dog bite lawyer successfully concluded a Bucks County Pennsylvania dog attack case. A woman had traveled to her vet’s office in Quakertown PA to purchase some cat food. As she walked by the front counter, an adult male boxer lunged at her and bit her on the thigh. This dog had a history of aggressive conduct and its owner did not have the boxer under proper control.

The Bucks County dog bite victim was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital in Quakertown. The Emergency Room doctor cut away the dead tissue, cleansed the leg wound and administered a tetanus shot. The woman followed the doctor’s orders and took all of the anti-infection medication that was prescribed.

The Quakertown dog bite injury attorney met with the dog attack victim in her Bucks County PA home and reviewed all of her legal options with her. Attorney Thomas J. Newell then ordered and paid for all of her medical records. He sent them, along with scar photographs, to the dog owner’s insurance company. A short time later, the Quakertown dog bite accident lawyer was able to settle the animal bite case without having to file a Bucks County Pennsylvania dog attack lawsuit.

Quakertown Dog Attack Lawyer Finalizes Settlement

On 7/10/17, your attorney for dog bites in Quakertown Pennsylvania concluded a Bucks County dog attack claim for a $17,500.00 settlement. A woman had gone to a Quakertown area animal rescue shelter to see about possibly adopting a mixed breed dog. While following the explicit orders of the shelter volunteer, she was attacked by the vicious canine.

Quakertown Dog Bite Lawyer Gives Free Consult

On 4/27/17, your Quakertown PA dog attack attorney provided a free consultation to a woman who was bitten by a vicious dog at her veterinarian’s office. Ten days earlier, she had taken her dog to be groomed at the vet’s office which is located just outside of Quakertown Pennsylvania. As she was standing by the front counter, an aggressive dog approached them. She attempted to shield her dog with her body when, without any warning, the vicious Lab bit her leg. The Bucks County PA resident was treated by her family doctor and took medication to prevent the development of any infections. Incredibly, the veterinarian’s office has shown little sympathy toward the Quakertown PA dog bite victim.
