An Iowa jury has returned a verdict for $228,000 in a case where a 13 year old boy suffered permanent muscle and nerve damage in his arm. He was bitten by a German Shepard. Despite attempts by big business and the Chamber of Commerce to talk about tort reform and jackpot justice, jurors are in a unique positon to make sure that justice is done. This is a time of personal responsibility. If you or your dog cause harm, you have to accept personal responsibilty for what happens. If you are a pet owner, make certain that your home owner’s insurance company will cover these claims. Some insurance companies are now writing policies that exclude dog bite claims.
