Last week Lee Niedrach obtained a judgment for over $440,000 for his client, including $100,000 in punitive damages. Lee’s client was walking his dogs in the neighborhood when he was suddenly attacked by an unrestrained dog. The client fought off the attacking dog to protect himself and his own dogs. In the process he lost the tip of his thumb and had to undergo corrective surgery. Lee uncovered the dog’s prior bite history to establish its dangerous propensity and the owners’ negligence in failing to restrain it.
