Attorney Adam Zayed of Zayed Law Offices announced a $255,000 settlement for a minor client who suffered a dog bite in New Lenox.  The settlement was approved by the Circuit Court of Will County.  According to the Jury Verdict Reporter, this is a record high award for a Will County dog bite case.

On June 22, 2013 our minor client went with his parents to watch a Blackhawks Playoff Game when the neighbor’s prized show dog attacked his leg without provocation.  Our client suffered scarring and incurred approximately $20,000 in medical treatment.  Our client was a wonderful boy with a great family.

“For parents, nothing is more shocking than an injury to child.  Fortunately our client made something close to a full recovery.  We feel this record settlement represents fair value for his injuries,” said Adam J. Zayed.

Here’s what our clients had to say:  “When we met Mr. Zayed and his associates there was an instant sense of their genuine concern for our son’s wellbeing.  The bond that we developed over the last several months will always remain dear and true to our hearts. We are forever grateful for everything that has been done to support our son.”
