STOCKTON – A Stockton woman is seeking damages from the owners of a dog temporarily left in her care after the animal allegedly injured her.
Gilka Marian filed a complaint on Dec. 7 in the San Joaquin Superior Court against David Prasad, Nirmala Prasad, Brian Prasad and Does 1 through 10 over alleged violation of the Dog Bite Statute and negligence.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 28, Marian and her husband were entrusted to temporarily take care of defendants' large untrained and un-neutered 8-year-old male Husky Chow mixed dog Rocky. She alleges the defendants failed to disclose the dog's dangerous and hazardous behavioral problems.
The suit states on March 6, the dog attacked the plaintiff without warning and she sustained multiple bites on her legs, buttocks and left arm and needed emergency surgery.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly concealed the material fact that the dog posed a serious safety threat to others.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs of suit, and such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Seth W. Wiener of Law Offices of Seth W. Wiener in San Ramon.
