Bit By Sheriff Police Dog

Settlement: $1.5 Million | Sacramento County | Graham v. County of Sacramento

As the dog attacked her, it bit through the peroneal nerve in her left lower leg, causing nerve damage to her leg resulting in "foot drop." This case resolved for $1.5 million. Shortly after this case resolved, Sacramento County embarked on a new program to refrain from the use of dogs that actually bite and have gone to a program where the dog will stop and bark.
