8-year old Leneeka Warren was attacked by a pit bull on December 15, 2006.
Reportedly the dog was being handled by a pair of teenage boys when it got loose. Leneeka spent nine hours in the emergency room at Harborview Medical Center.
Civl and criminal charges may be issued. Additionally, Leneeka likely has civil tort claims against the boys who handled the dog and possibly the dog’s owner. Hopefully there is homeowners’ insurance coverage that may pay for her medical expenses and other damages.
