Grandmother and Friend Keep Attacking Dogs at Bay

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 4-Jul-2011

A grandmother, her baby granddaughter and a friend were lucky to escape a serious mauling by two German shepherds earlier this year, but both were left shaken and slightly hurt by the attack.

Laurie Adams, 49, of Haverhill, PA and a friend were walking with Adams' year-old granddaughter when two dogs attacked the baby's stroller, reports say.

Both women placed themselves in front of the carriage and shielded the baby, suffering bite wounds to their legs in the process, reports say.

As they thought the attack was over, the shepherds regrouped and attacked a second time. Adams believes they were trying to get to the baby. Emergency services arrived at the scene when one of the women managed to call 911 with her cell phone.

The women were taken to Lawrence General Hospital for treatment; the child was uninjured. The dogs' owner was out of town, but the caretaker was fined $100 after the attack, reports say.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
