Our client, a 15 year old boy, was playing with a family friend’s dog in a rural backyard. Without warning or provocation, a dog owned by the friend’s neighbor ran onto the friend’s property and attacked the boy. The boy suffered numerous bite wounds, including his ear flap being separated from his skull. The boy spent three days in the hospital and, fortunately, a plastic surgeon was able to reattach his ear without any hearing loss. He was left with numerous scars. The case settled for $165,000 for the boy’s hospital bills and pain and suffering.
