Our client was attacked by two vicious dogs when she was visiting her father’s apartment residence in Wyandotte County, Kansas. The dogs, owned by the property owner who resided nearby, were known to have attacked other visitors and had allegedly killed another dog.
Our client sustained severe bite injuries to her legs, hips, and buttocks, which required surgery. Unfortunately, these injuries became infected, which required hospitalization and further treatment. We initiated suit, and after a hearing, the judgment was entered against the landowner in the amount of $527,500.00, which was roughly five times the amount of our client’s medical bills.
