We recently obtained a $180,000 settlement on behalf of a client. The client suffered a serious dog bite. Despite the fact that the dog did not have a history of previous bites and was not known as a vicious dog, as required by common law, we stated claims based on the Animal Control Act that ultimately let to a great result for our client. The settlement included recovery for damages that included disfigurement, pain and suffering, and medical expenses. Additionally, we were able to structure the settlement so that the client received nearly the full amount of the settlement even after attorney fees and costs.
