Mykelle Bullock, PPA v. Lynette Martinez: A 12-year-old girl bitten in the face by a neighbor’s dog has been awarded nearly $237,000 by a judge following a trial in Bridgeport.

On March 23, 2014, at about 1:30 p.m., Mykelle Bullock was walking home on Hillside Avenue in Bridgeport after going to a nearby grocery store, according to one of her family’s lawyers, Joseph De Lucia of De Lucia & Levine in Bridgeport.

De Lucia said while Bullock was walking, she heard a gate open in front of a home and heard a dog barking. One of the neighbor’s little dogs then came up to her, bit her lower pant leg and held on, though its teeth didn’t puncture Bullock’s skin. While she was dealing with that situation, De Lucia said a much larger dog, a Labrador retriever named Hazel, planted two paws on Bullock’s shoulder and then bit her in the face.
