Attorney Cindy Manchester, Chair of the personal injury law team at Levene Gouldin & Thompson, obtained a settlement in favor of a child bitten by a dog in the amount of $100,000 – the full insurance policy limits available.
The Binghamton area child was playing with a friend when a dog owned by a neighbor, which was being walked on a retractable leash, bit the child’s leg. The child required surgery and a skin graft, but made a full recovery.
Structured Settlement for the Minor
The settlement funds were placed into a special structure, designed to protect the funds until the child turned 25 years old.
