Dunnion Law Firm Increases Dog Bite Victim's Settlement from $67,000 to over $300,000

Dunnion Law Firm Increases Dog Bite Victim's Settlement from $67,000 to over $300,000

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 8-Oct-2014

A Clovis boy was at a neighborhood barbeque when he was suddenly attacked by a large dog. The dog bit at his hand, slicing off the tip of one of his fingers. The family wanted to avoid any legal action, though, and tried to settle the case themselves without an attorney. However, they only received low offers from the insurance company that didn’t adequately compensate their son for the painful and traumatic suffering he experienced following the attack.

Upon hiring The Dunnion Law Firm, their attorneys were able to immediately increase the offer from the insurance company significantly. Their attorneys also arranged the necessary medical expert consultations to document the victim’s residual injuries. With further investigation, depositions, discovery, and aggressive negotiation, the Dunnion Law Firm was able to increase the insurance company’s offer by over 4 times. The family was adamant that they did not want to relive the trauma of that fateful day with a trial, and their attorneys were able to obtain a settlement of over $300,000 without the victim ever having to set foot in the courthouse.
