Mr. Streed’s client was responding to a family’s request that he service/fix their AC unit during a heat wave. The service technician responded quickly as he knew the family has several young children and some elderly family members, all of whom were suffering from the stifling temperatures.

The homeowner did not communicate to other family members that the technician was to arrive within the hour. The tech, who was familiar with the home, but who had no idea the family had pit bulls, was savagely attacked as he stepped outside to finish working on the AC unit. Mr. Streed and his client brought suit against the homeowner and the dog owner and recovered over $225,000 for the physical and emotional trauma experienced by the client.
