$302,000.00 (Dog Bite Victim)
$302,000 Awarded to Dog Bite Victim while walking his poodle, a 71-year-old man was attacked by a pit bull. The pit bull knocked the man to the ground, fracturing his hip. When the victim was found, more than 30 minutes later, he had suffered deep puncture wounds and lacerations to both arms. His wounds required significant stitching. As a result of the hip fracture, he was forced to undergo a right hip replacement surgery. The operation necessitated a prolonged hospital stay and further recovery in a nursing home. Personal injury attorney Russell Kohn was able to help the victim obtain $100,000 in both current and future medical expenses. Due to the severity of his injuries, the plaintiff continued to suffer loss of strength in his right leg as well as limited range of motion, making it difficult to perform everyday tasks such as putting on shoes and socks. He was awarded an additional $202,000 for his pain and suffering.
