$101,166 TRIAL VERDICT FOR TEACHER BITTEN BY A DOG

A school teacher was roller bladding on a public street at Lake Tahoe, CA when a German Shepard dog ran at her and bit her left leg, knocking her to the pavement. The dog owners claimed their dog never left their home and presented evidence of other dogs who might have attacked the teacher. We argued that the German Shepard dog had previously bitten a person and that the owners were strictly liable. Our client received a deep laceration to her left calf requiring plastic surgery.
