Dog Bite

Our client went to a Super Bowl party at the home of a person who owned a dog. Unbeknownst to our client, the dog had bitten a stranger in the owner’s presence the year before. As our client entered the room where the guests were, she placed her purse on the ground and the dog then attacked her and bit her in the face. As a result of the attack she suffered a soft tissue avulsion to the tip of her nose and a permanent scar on the nasal tip. A piece of cartilage was torn from her nose and had to be retrieved from the scene of the incident and taken to the hospital by another guest at the party.The owner of the dog denied responsibility, claiming that he told the guests that the dog could be dangerous and that our client was at fault for keeling near it. Nevertheless, we filed suit in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland, conducted extensive discovery and were able to settle the case prior to trial.
