PHILADELPHIA – A Delaware plaintiff has initiated legal action versus a Kensington business and its proprietor, whose pet dog allegedly attacked her last fall.
Katrice Williams-Dredden of Wilmington, Del. filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on March 13 versus Jedidiah Weller and Webjunto, LLC, both of Philadelphia.
Per the litigation, Williams-Dredden said she was a customer of the defendant business on Nov. 14 of last year, when Weller’s dog lunged at the plaintiff, biting her on each of her thighs. When Williams-Dredden tried to pull free of the dog’s grip, her hip was caused to pop, she says.
As a result, Williams-Dredden allegedly suffered puncture wounds to the inner thighs, permanent scarring and disfigurement, hip pain, right leg pain and weakness, post-traumatic anxiety and depression, severe damage to her nerves and nervous system, bruising, swelling, numbness, general discomfort, plus other ills and injuries.
Williams accused Weller of possessing a dog of a known vicious character, permitting the dog to attack her and failing to properly restrain and/or muzzle the dog, among numerous other charges.
For a single count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages, jointly and/or severally, in excess of $50,000, plus interest and costs of suit.
The plaintiff is represented by Edith A. Pearce of The Pearce Law Firm, in Philadelphia.
