COVELO: Pollard Hale, 57, Attacked by 3 Pit Bull Dogs on Wright Way

COVELO, California (January 10, 2017) — A 57-year-old Covelo man suffered major injuries after being attacked by three Pit Bull Terrier dogs on an evening walk on Wright Way, according to a report by KRCR News 7.

Pollard Hale was attacked on the evening of January 4. The man was severely mauled by the animals when they got out of their yard through an open gate at their home on Wright Way. One report on the attack stated he may lose his left arm due to the injuries. Hale’s son also suffered wounds to his hands as he went to his rescue. The owner of the animals apparently went to help Hale by getting the dogs under control.

Pollard suffered major injuries to his face and limbs. He was airlifted to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital where he is being treated in intensive care for major injuries. His doctors told the man’s wife that he will have to undergo extensive rehabilitation to recover from the wounds.

The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Animal Control Division was informed of the dog attack the following morning about 10:20 a.m. when they got a call from the man’s wife.

The owner of the dogs has been identified as Miguel Escareno Pinon, 24, who lives on Wright Way. The dog owner has been cooperating with police and his dogs are under quarantine by animal control for 10 days. Pinon had a previous dog bite incident with a different animal at the same location.

The incident remains under investigation by police.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
