Mascoutah man sues couple for dog bite
A Mascoutah man is suing a Belleville couple for disfiguring facial wounds he suffered while a guest in their home on Dec. 24, 2005.
Brett R. Bennett, represented by Jon E. Rosenstengel of Bonifield & Rosentengel in Belleville, is seeking in excess of $50,000 plus costs of his suit against Joseph and Dana Huffman.
Bennett claims the Huffmans' "chow-bred" dog, without provocation, bit him in the face.
He claims to have incurred medical bills, lost wages, pain in the past and pain in the future, loss of a normal life and difigurement.
