December 7, 2022

CHICAGO (December 7, 2022) – Romanucci & Blandin, LLC announces the $301,000 settlement of a Lake County, Illinois lawsuit involving a dog attacking a service professional while he worked in a private residence this spring. The plaintiff, who was represented by a legal team at R&B, is a 47-year-old electrician who was on the job in the dog owner’s home in Gurnee, Illinois. During that service call, the plaintiff was attacked when the homeowner allowed a pit bull to escape its enclosure, causing significant injuries to the plaintiff and requiring extensive medical treatment.

The case, filed earlier this year in Lake County, was resolved in October 2022 and represented a recovery of the full homeowner policy limits, including exhausting the coverage under the policy’s Med Pay provisions.
