$175,000 settlement after dog knocks down an elderly woman
Skolnick Law Group in association with Kohn Law Office obtained a $175,000 settlement with a homeowner’s insurance company after the homeowner’s dog escaped in the front yard and knocked an 82 year old woman to the ground injuring her hip. The victim required a hip surgery. The insurance company attempted to dispute causation by arguing that the victim’s hip was likely degenerating even before the incident occurred. Ultimately, Suzanne Skolnick convinced the insurance company to settle for $175,000.
