Settlement: Settled in favor of client

This was a case where a young boy, age 6, was bitten by a neighborhood dog. The bite itself was not horrific (in fact it was in the upper inner thigh, and left almost no scar), but it had a significant impact on the boy’s emotional state. The defendant’s insurance company belittled the claim. We secured the services of an expert and presented a claim that the dog attack resulted in the boy stuttering. The claim was then settled favorably, for multiple times the original offer.
