Dog Owner’s Insurance Company Pays $ 101,000.00 to Northumberland County Victim

Posted on: March 3rd, 2011       Attorney Thomas Newell

A Good Samaritan who was badly injured due to a neighbor’s violation of the PA Dog Law received the defendant’s insurance policy limits of $101,000.00. The dog owner let the dog run loose in the neighborhood and it ran into the victim’s home as she tried to help the dog owner. The victim tripped over the dog and badly broke her right leg.

The Northumberland County personal injury victim underwent surgery with a plate and screws installed to keep the fracture site stable. Unfortunately, the right leg became infected and multiple surgeries were required to try and save the leg. Your Pennsylvania dog bite attorney obtained the dog owner’s liability policy limit of $100,000.00 as well as the medical payment limit of $1,000.00.
