$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.
