We represented a young man who was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was a house party guest when a fight broke out (he wasn't involved). The host owned a large male pit bull which got excited in the commotion. He attacked our client, who was standing by himself across the room. The party host had a "no shoes" policy in his house, so the dog was able to bite directly on the foot with no protection (except a sock). The bite caused permanent tissue and nerve damage. We utilized a canine behavioral expert to help prove our theory of liability against the pit bull owner. Additionally, it was not the first time the dog had bitten. Because our client was forced to miss work for an extended time, the settlement helped cover his extensive lost earnings as well as hospitalization charges.
