$300,000.00                                    Adams County PA

In November of 2013, the Adams County dog attack attorney attended a Hearing in Gettysburg Pennsylvania and received permission from an Adams County judge to settle an PA dog bite lawsuit for $300,000.00. The case’s origin began when a six year old girl went to visit some friends who lived next door. She knocked on the front door and heard their father invite her in.

As the Adams County resident opened the front door, “Chaos” the pit bull charged onto the porch and bit off a portion of her nose. The Adams County dog attack victim was rushed to Meritus Medical Center. Surgeons re-attached the bitten off portion of her nose and also performed surgery on the dog bite wound to her right cheek.

As soon as their daughter was released from the hospital, her parents researched various Adams County dog attack law firms to select the top Adams County dog bite attorney to handle this complex personal injury case. The Adams County dog attack attorney traveled to Fairfield PA to meet with the family. Several weeks later, the lawyer for dog bites in Adams County returned for a District Justice hearing vs. the pit bull owners. The defendants were found guilty by the Adams County D.J. of harboring a dangerous dog and failing to confine the pit bull.

After plastic surgery was performed a year later, the Adams County dog bite attorney obtained all of the medical records as well as current photos. Originally, the pit bull owners’ insurance company would not pay their liability policy limit of $300,000.00 to settle the Adams County PA dog bite claim.

The Adams County dog bite injury lawyer filed an Adams County dog attack lawsuit in Gettysburg PA. Soon thereafter, the insurance carrier relented and agreed to the terms demanded by the Adams County dog bite injury attorney. A structured settlement annuity plan was approved by the Adams County PA Judge so as to allow a maximum tax-free recovery for the Adams County dog bite victim.

$ 11,004.00                                     Adams County PA

In July of 2017, the Adams County dog bite lawyer obtained an $11,004.00 dog attack settlement for a Biglerville PA resident. The woman had agreed to buy a dishwasher from a Hanover Pennsylvania family. She arrived at the defendant’s home at the agreed upon time and date. The seller showed up a short time later with a pit bull in her car. She said, “I’m going to leave my dog inside the car while I get the dishwasher because I’m not sure how she is going to react to you.”

As the Adams County resident began to put the dishwasher into her pick-up truck, the defendant decided to let her pit bull out of her vehicle. She took it for a walk right next to the pick-up truck. Suddenly, and without any warning, the pit bull bit the woman on her right leg. Had the dog owner kept the pit bull inside her car until after the appliance had been taken away, this unprovoked dog attack never would have happened.

The dog bite victim was driven to Gettysburg Hospital. Bite wounds and puncture marks were observed. A tetanus shot was administered and information was provided on how best to avoid an infection. Soon thereafter, the woman contacted the Adams County dog attack injury attorney who immediately checked on the past history of this aggressive pit bull.

Attorney Newell obtained all of his client’s medical bills, medical records and photographs depicting the permanent dog bite scar on her lower right leg. A detailed settlement demand packet was sent to the defendant’s homeowners insurance company. Ultimately, the $11,004.00 dog bite settlement was agreed to. The lawyer for dog attacks in Adams County Pennsylvania was pleased to have settled the case within months of being hired by the Biglerville PA resident.
