WORCESTER — A civil attorney who concentrates in dog attack cases announced Wednesday he has secured a $300,000 settlement in connection with a pit bull attack in Gettysburg.

Attorney Thomas Newell, 57, of Worcester, says that on April 13, 2011, a 6-year-old girl went to her friend’s house in Fairfield, and as she was opening the door, the dog jumped out and bit off a portion of her nose. Surgeons were able to re-attach the nose, although the girl went through 23, two-hour sessions in a hyperbaric chamber, which is supposed to help grow the skin tissue back.
