Woman Knocked Down By Dog At Beach Results In $80,000 Settlement

Woman Knocked Down By Dog At Beach Results In $80,000 Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 24-Jul-2013

A Monterey-county hospital worker was jogging on a beach where dogs are allowed to be off leash. A dog-owner failed to control his half-blind dog from running into the jogger. The woman fell and fractured her wrist. She would later need knee surgery. Her once normally athletic and active life was changed in that collision between animal and human. But it would get worse for this woman. The dog-owner’s insurance company denied any and all liability, claiming that the woman should have not jogged into the dog’s path. The insurance company also argued that the dog-owner was not responsible for what his playing dog did because a playing dog is unpredictable and not dangerous. The Dunnion Law Firm took this woman’s case and aggressively litigated the case in court. Despite a motion to dismiss the case, The Dunnion Law Firm prevailed against the defendant’s attorneys and obtained a settlement of $80,000. Whether a dog bites you or just knocks you down, The Dunnion Law Firm will get the maximum settlement for victims hurt by dogs.
