The Florida dog bite lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff, a law firm dedicated to providing legal representation to clients who have been wrongfully injured or killed because of the negligence of others, hereby alerts the public that the firm has agreed to a settlement with regards to a Florida personal injury lawsuit that was filed on behalf of a minor who was allegedly injured in a dog bite attack.
Specifically, this Florida personal injury lawsuit was filed in The Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida. It was assigned a case number of 12-9366 CA (30) and the title of the case was Molina v. Jimenez. The case was settled before proceeding to trial for an agreed-upon amount of $300,000.00.
The case stemmed from an alleged incident that took place on November 11, 2011, when the plaintiffs' minor child, who was six years old at the time, was allegedly attacked and injured by a dog that was owned by the defendants named in the Florida personal injury lawsuit. As a result of this alleged dog bite attack, the plaintiffs claim that the minor child at issue incurred medical costs and other forms of loss.
State Farm Fire and Casualty was also part of the lawsuit because it was the underwriter for the homeowner's policy that was maintained by the defendants. This insurance policy, according to court documents, had a policy limit of $300,000 for unforeseen liability. The Florida personal injury lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff successfully negotiated a settlement that reached the policy limit, and the attorneys at the firm agreed to dismiss the lawsuit with prejudice in response to the completion of this agreement.
