$275,000 Recovered for Mother Severely Scarred After Dog Attack
Case Type: Personal Injury - Dog Bite
Our client, a young mother, was seriously injured when a dog bit part of her face off in response to her boyfriend’s jealous rage.
During an altercation with her physically abusive boyfriend, our client was attacked by a dog belonging to the boyfriend’s parents.
Despite knowing that the four dogs were easily excitable and that sudden and surprising behavior would agitate them, the boyfriend lunged at our client in an attempt to take her cell phone. In the ensuing commotion, one of the dogs bit her, seriously injuring her face.
Our client has undergone surgery to repair her face, but she still has visible scars and disfigurement from the attack. Her superior orbital nerve was severed, causing her excruciating pain, numbness, and terrible headaches that are treated with Botox, which she will likely need for the rest of her life.
She escaped her abusive boyfriend by moving with her child out of state, with no choice but to start her life over in a new place as a single mother. She has lost significant income from many missed months of work. In addition to needing another expensive surgery, the young mother suffers from anxiety and depression brought on by the trauma of the attack.
Our team recovered $275,000 for our client’s injuries.
