Case Example: Dog Bites



A woman was invited to visit her neighbors next door who owned a German Shepherd. While the dog had never bitten anyone, it was known to bark aggressively whenever people came to or walked by the house. The dog was also known to jump up on people upon entry and it would sometimes snap at the mail coming in the mail slot in the door. As the woman knocked on the front door, the dog began to bark loudly. The neighbors opened the door and invited the woman to step inside. The dog lunged through the open door and attacked, biting the woman and ripping an eight-inch gash in her leg. Through our representation, we were able to show that the dog owners were negligent in how they handled their dog and negotiated a settlement that compensated her for the injury she received.
