Settlement Of Dog Bite Claim

January 2017

The firm represented a client who was attacked by several dogs within the city limits of Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The owner of the dogs involved in the attack failed to restrain her dogs and allegedly failed to maintain her property in a way to assure that the dogs were not free to get out and roam unsupervised in the neighborhood. The client suffered permanent scarring and emotional distress. The firm negotiated a settlement with the homeowner’s insurance company for the dogs’ owner.
