Location: Montgomery County PA
Settlement: $479,000.00

A Lansdale area dog attack victim was paid a total annuity structured settlement payment of $479,000.00 after a vicious dog mauling. A boy was playing with friends in his development when an unrestrained German Shepherd attacked him. The dog bite wounds tore open a large portion of his lower face and jaw area.

The child was taken to Montgomery Hospital in Norristown where surgery was performed to reconstruct the left lateral commissure. An additional surgery in the form of debridement was used to reduce the permanency and visibility of permanent facial scars. In the next 1 1/2 years, the Lansdale PA dog bite victim was required to wear three different types of facial splints.

The Lansdale PA dog attack attorney investigated the attack and the previous conduct of the defenedants dog. The German Shepherd had attacked 4 other people before this mauling. Attorney Newell threatened to file punitive damages against the defendants if their homeowners insurance company did not settle the case prior to a lawsuit being filed. PA Dog Law violations included failure to confine and harboring a dangerous dog.

Ultimately, Attorney Newell obtained an annuity payment package which made tax free payments to the Lansdale area dog bite victim at ages 18, 19, 20 and 25 totaling $479,000.00.

Lansdale PA Client Reviews

Mr. Newell,

I cannot thank you enough for your incredibly thorough handling of my case. Especially your tenacity in dealing with the insurance companies attempts to pass the buck around. I could never have dealt with the kind of thing and it was a pleasure to watch a professional work. To anyone reading this, I say this: Just put yourself in their hands, sit back and let them do what they do best – which is to stand up for your rights! Believe me, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks for everything !

Attorney Newell went above and beyond what I had expected of him. He made multiple house calls to that I could sign legal documents, including the initial consultation to hire him. He worked diligently and kept me informed on any changes in my case. He was able to obtain the policy limit of the insurance company in just 2 months! Not only did he do that, but even though the case was closed, he helped me with my medical insurance company – saving me thousands of dollars. I highly recommend Attorney Thomas Newell.
