When a minor was attacked by a dog, he was rushed to the University of Chicago Hospital due to excessive bleeding from his head and face. He was diagnosed with an open fracture of the left parietal lobe, punctured wounds to the left frontal bone, skull fractures, and pneumocephalus. The young man was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit for three days.
With extensive experience handling dog bite injury claims, Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. took the case and negotiated with the other party’s insurance carrier. In the end, we reached a settlement for $100,000 as compensation for the child’s injuries, pain and suffering.
