On Sept. 15, 2012, Attorney Newell received a copy of a Court Order from Orphans’ Court of Monroe County approving a $117,460.00 settlement for a Monroe County PA dog bite victim. The 2 year-old girl was being babysat by a relative when their dog mauled her.

The defendants were well aware of their dog’s prior vicious propensities, but let the young child interact with this aggressive dog. She was bitten in the face and head. Plastic surgery was performed at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital on the Poconos dog attack victim.

Her mother hired Attorney Newell who obtained the defendants’ homeowners insurance policy limit. Judge Williamson approved of Attorney Newell’s plan to put the settlement proceeds into a structured settlement annuity fund.
