Dog Bite – Babysitter Bitten in the Face
How It Happened
A Stoughton woman was babysitting when she was attacked and bitten in the face by the homeowner’s dog.
Injuries sustained from the accident
The woman was rushed to the hospital where the wound required over 200 sutures. A plastic surgeon was retained to
determine the extent and nature of any revision surgery that may be necessary. The wound healed over the course
of the year with limited scarring.
The case settled prior to trial for $150,000 in addition to payment of medical bills and other expenses.
