Our client, a 45 year old woman, was visiting her parents when their dog was suddenly attacked by a neighbor’s dog. Our client ran outside and tried to rescue her parents’ dog. As she ran, she tripped and injured her knee –this required arthroscopic surgery for tears. Its important to note that she was not injured by defendants dog nor by the dog fight itself. The defendant dog had previously attacked our client’s dog and Finkelstein & Partners obtained a report to verify this. Liability was an issue as it was undisputed that our client was injured in the fall rather then the attack. Our argument that the plaintiff’s reaction was a natural one as well as our being able to prove a prior attack enabled us to able to obtain an offer of settlement after commencing suit.
In the past 60 years Finkelstein & Partners has consistently obtained thousands of successful verdicts and settlements. The recoveries for our clients are among the highest in the State and our results speak for themselves.
