Dog Bite

This case was referred to our office from another attorney who was handling the case but could not get the insurance company to be reasonable. Client was bitten in the face by a very small dog and suffered from superficial scarring to his right upper lip which was barely noticeable.  The insurance company did not want to pay any reasonable settlement amount so we prepared for trial including retaining an expert and arranging for the client's physician to appear at trial and testify about the future cost of plastic surgery. Once the defense realized we were intending to try the case, the insurance carrier got our client the money he deserved.
