Case Summary

Dog Bite

A young woman who was jogging on a public street was attacked and scratched on her face by a dog owned by a couple who routinely permitted their dog to roam without restraint. The victim had a small scar on her face, but did not require any follow up care after the date of injury, and did not miss any work. The insurance company offered her less than $10,000 to settle her injury. Ultimately, the case settled for $50,000 without engaging in lengthy litigation.
