Rottweiler Attack Settles for $300,000

BiState Law Center Resolves Dog Attack For Policy Limits

wThe BiState Injury Law Center has resolved an Illinois dog bite claim for $300,000.00 against a homeowner’s insurance company in Romeoville, Illinois. After several rounds of negotiation, and on the eve of filing a lawsuit, the parties agreed to settle the case for the homeowner’s policy limits.

Matt Nagel of BiState was the lead attorney on the claim, where a young woman was savagely attacked by a Rottweiler. The client was delivering a package to the home when the dog pushed open the screen door and tackled the woman to the ground. The victim suffered a shattered wrist, permanent scarring and Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) due to nerve damage. Matt negotiated a settlement that covered her past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and over six months of lost wages.

– “I am delighted that we were able to secure a fair settlement for our client without subjecting her to the rigors of a full trial,” said Attorney Nagel. “However, being willing to fight for clients and take that fight to the courtroom makes a huge difference in ensuring the clients are treated fairly. Sadly, this client has a long road ahead, but I am proud that we could help be part of the healing process.”
