Our client was a 12-year-old from Ocean County, NJ who was bitten twice by a large dog (St. Bernard). The child suffered a large Dog Bites to the tricep muscle with 75% muscle loss, as well as a bite to the knee with puncture wounds. Treatment consisted of closing the wounds and therapy to regain muscle tone in the upper extremity. Our client was also treated on 2 occasions with a psychologist for nightmares and a general fear of dogs. The child healed nicely and resumed all regular activities within two years of the incident. Petra Vavra worked with Jack Kane on the case, which was mediated and settled prior to the scheduled trial date for $390,000.
