Monroe Dog Bite Lawyer Settles Child Dog Attack Lawsuit

Our dog bite lawyers in Monroe, Michigan recently settled a lawsuit for a child bitten by a neighbor’s dog.  The nine year old girl was playing on the trampoline in her neighbor’s yard with their permission when their chocolate Labrador retriever attacked her without any provocation.  The dog bit the girl on her left thigh and caused several puncture wounds and lacerations. 

Our client was taken to Mercy Memorial Hospital for treatment. The emergency room physician cut off her pants to get to the wounds.  Swelling and bruising were reported in addition to the laceration and puncture wounds caused by the bite.  The ER doctor further reported “Pain, swelling, bleeding”.  She has permanent scars on her inner thigh.

The present case seeks redress for serious and permanent injuries and disfigurement suffered by Cloie Preston, a 9 year old, from a dog attack involving Defendant’s dog.  The defendants dog attacked and bit Cloie on the left thigh as she played in defendants back yard.

We were contacted by the girl’s parents to pursue a claim for damages against the neighbor.  The neighbor had homeowner’s insurance to cover the claim.  We filed a lawsuit in the Monroe County Circuit Court seeking damages for pain and suffering, fright and shock, and the permanent scar.  A claim was also made for the medical expenses incurred as a result of the bite.   We were able to settle the claim for $50,000.00 prior to trial.  A portion of the girl’s money was placed in a college fund for her to use after she graduates from high school.
