Horwitz Clients Awarded Maximum Policy Limit of $304,000.00 Following Madison Dog Attack

A Davidson County Circuit Court judge has ordered approval of a $304,000.00 settlement award arising from a May 2020 dog attack in Madison.  The $304,000.00 award is among the largest—if not the largest—recoveries ever obtained in a dog bite case in Tennessee that did not result in a victim’s wrongful death.

“We are pleased to have obtained a prompt and record-setting recovery on behalf of the Stone family that compensates them for their injuries, takes care of all of their medical bills, and will allow them to begin the process of healing from this traumatic attack,” said Daniel Horwitz, the plaintiffs’ attorney.  Horwitz represents victims of criminal misconduct and extreme negligence in complex injury cases.

The first portion of the court-ordered award is set forth in the Circuit Court’s October 21, 2020 Order here.  Selected filings and media coverage of the incident are linked below.
