$55,000 settlement for a 16-year old girl who was bitten in the face by a dog at the adoption facilities at a Petco store. The attorneys at Nash & Franciskato were able to prove that the dog had prior propensities to bite. The settlement paid for the medical expenses and for money for college.


$80,000 Settlement, 10-year old bitten on leg by neighbor's dog.

$80,000 settlement for a 10 year old girl who was bitten in the leg by a neighbor’s dog when walking home. Even though the dog had been restrained on a leash, the attorneys at Nash and Franciskato were able to argue the owners were strictly liable, pursuant to Missouri law. The settlement money helped pay for medical expenses, including a scar revision surgery. The money was also utilized to set up a college fund for the little girl.
