(EXCLUSIVE) NY Jets Star Brandon Marshall Off the Hook in Dog Attack
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, New York Jets star Brandon Marshall can breathe a little easier now since the man – who sued the NFL star over a vicious dog attacked that caused him to be disfigured – has dismissed all claims against him in Florida Court.
A man named Jonas Placide filed suit against NFL star Brandon Marshall in Broward County Court accusing him of not watching his dogs and causing him to be attacked so bad he became disfigured.
The suit explained that on August 23rd 2013, he was hired to do landscaping work at Marshall’s mansion in Southwest Ranches, Florida. He said while he working on the landscaping he was attacked by one or more of Marshall’s dogs and suffered severe bodily injuries including disfigurement from the attack.
Placide said he did nothing to provoke the dogs to attack him. He placed the entire blame of the incident on the NFL star for failing to properly supervise, secure and contain the dogs and also for failing to closely monitor their behavior while guests were on the property.
He said as a result of the attack he has suffered injuries including pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of medical and nursing care/treatment, loss of earning and the loss of ability to earn money in the future.
He filed suit against Marshall for his negligence which caused him personal injury and is demanding in excess of 15k for the medical bills and damages caused to his life.
The NFL star fired back at his former employee’s lawsuit accusing him of being the cause for the vicious dog attack.
Marshall claims that Placide may have provoked the incident with the dogs and says he was aware the dogs were on the property before he entered and he assumed the risk by coming into Marshall’s home.
The NFL star said he didn’t owe the man for his alleged injuries and demanded the entire lawsuit be thrown out of court.
However, despite his claims he wasn’t responsible for the attack at his home, docs were filed in the case by Placide, who informed the court he is dismissing the case and all claims against Marshall once and for all. All signs point to a confidential settlement being reached but the terms of any deal will remain confidential.
