PA Dog Bite Attorney Finalizes $201,000 Berks County Settlement


Perkasie, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/11/2015 -- On November 5, 2015, PA dog bite lawyer, Thomas J. Newell, filed a Verification of Annuity Funding with the Berks County Orphans' Court in Reading, PA. This document concluded the legal proceedings for Berks County Court of Common Pleas Case #84401 and finalized the $201,000.00 PA dog bite settlement.

The Pennsylvania dog attack lawyer had filed a nine-page Petition for Minor's Compromise with the Berks County Orphans' Court. This legal document outlined the facts of a May 21, 2013, dog attack in Fleetwood, PA. The defendants owned a pit bull/boxer mix that attacked an 11-year-old Oley, PA resident. The Petition described how the Berks County, PA dog bite victim was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital in Reading.

Doctors performed surgery to close a 6-centimeter laceration to the young girl's nose. The lawyer for dog bites in PA attached to his Petition copies of a surgeon's operative report, as well as a follow-up visit to a plastic surgeon 1½ years after the Berks County dog attack.

Attorney Newell commented: "I am happy to have obtained this settlement without having to file a PA dog bite lawsuit. This eliminated the possibility of the young girl being deposed or explaining the details of the dog attack in open court at trial in Reading. The structured settlement annuity approved by Judge Schmehl will substantially help with her future college expenses."
