Our firm’s lead personal injury attorney, T. Shawn Howard, recently represented a Raleigh boy who was attacked by a Pit bull. The attack left the client with a scar near his lip.
Although the client’s family only had approximately $3,000.00 in medical expenses, Mr. Howard was able to settle the case at mediation on Friday for $200,000.00. It was the dogs second time biting someone in his Raleigh community and third time the Raleigh Animal Control Department had to be called because he was attacking someone. The insurance company’s offer before the lawsuit was filed was only $30,000.00.
Mr. Howard has successfully represented many victims of vicious North Carolina dog attacks and is familiar with the unique psychological impact the attack and the physical scars can leave.
