Location: Northampton County PA
Settlement: $71,107.48

A Bethlehem, Pennsylvania dog attack victim received a $71,107.48 payout for her dog bite claim. The Bethlehem resident was delivering mail in the Lehigh Valley when a boxer went through a front
screen door and assaulted her. She was bitten 2 or 3 times on the leg. Ultimately, the negligent dog owner captured his boxer and restrained it. Another of his dogs chased after the Bethlehem dog bite victim as she sought safety in her mail truck. The Bethlehem PA dog mauling victim received medical care at Lehigh Valley Hospital on Cedar Crest Boulevard.Once she was discharged, her injured leg swelled up and her family physician feared that her dog bite wounds had become infected. She returned to Lehigh Valley Hospital where she was an in-patient for three days.

The Bethlehem PA dog bite lawyer obtained her medical bills,medical records and photographs proving permanent scarring. He negotiated a $71,107.48 settlement for the Bethlehem PA resident without having to file a lawsuit.

Bethlehem PA Client Reviews

I was very pleased with the quality of legal services provided by Thomas Newell. Admittedly, I was not the easiest client for him to have worked with due to my constant travel schedule due to work. However, despite all of these frustrations of my not keeping up with things on my end of the deal,he conducted himself very professionally and efficiently to keep the legal process
moving forward to a very satisfying conclusion concerning my case.

Thomas Newell did an excellent job on my behalf and is certainly worthy of my recommendation to future clients in need of superb legal counsel.

Attorney Thomas Newell has just finished representing me in my personal injury case. I had hired him once before, and was impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and caring mannerisms. So it was no doubt that he was the lawyer of choice when it came to representing me and my loved one in our recent personal injury claim.

Like most college students, I was incredibly pressed, both for time and money when it came to medical care. Thomas was able to settle my claim and recover all of the out of pocket expenses
beyond my medical limits within onl y a few weeks after my medical treatment!

Great attorney. I will definitely be referring both my friends and family.

Our experience with Attorney Newell,

My husband was seriously hurt in February of 2010. He was out of work for about 7 weeks. We contacted Attorney Newell. He called us right away and came to our home to do the consultation. We
decided to hire him because of his dedication to his clients.

He was great. In August of 2010 – 5 month later,he fought for my husband and we accepted a settlement from their insurance company. Our experience with Attorney Newell was great. He went
above and beyond.We would recommend him to anyone that would need a dedicated and honest attorney. Thank you Mr. Newell.
