$75K Settlement for Chester County Dog Attack Victim

Posted on: October 2nd, 2013       Attorney Thomas Newell

On October 1, 2013, Thomas J. Newell, Esquire obtained court approval for a $75,000.00 dog bite settlement after a 4 year old girl was mauled by her aunt’s Labrador Retrievers.  Two years earlier, the little girl was an invited guest of her aunt and was attacked almost immediately after she entered the home in West Chester PA.

LABS - 2Surgeons at Chester County Hospital used 6 staples and 10 stitches to repair the dog bite wounds to her scalp and shoulder.  A year after the Chester County dog attack, Attorney Newell suggested to the girl’s parents that they have their daughter examined by a plastic surgeon.  The doctor wrote a report which indicated that the scar on her right shoulder had healed nicely and plastic surgery was not necessary.
