Utah Woman Awarded $250K in Dog Bite Lawsuit

April 8, 2014

A judge has ruled in favor of an Ogden, Utah, woman in a lawsuit over a severe dog bite.

Second District Judge Mike DiReda found that Sara Loving was owed $250,000 in damages from defendants James and Cindy Davis for injuries she sustained in the July 2012 attack.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports Loving was visiting the couple’s home when their Rottweiler burst into the living room and bit her thigh. It took several minutes for the owners to make the dog let go.

Loving was hospitalized and underwent multiple surgeries. A certified nursing assistant at the time, she has been unable to work since.

Loving’s attorney, Stephen Farr, says collecting the payments from the defendants may prove difficult since they now live in Louisiana. They’re accused of doing nothing to address her hospital bills.
