Dr. Phil and his wife are being sued by their former best friend because their dog attacked her, leaving her with cuts, abrasions, and an infection. The woman says she needed emergency care and extended care at home. She was hooked up to an IV for 7 days while being prescribed steroids and antibiotics.
The McGraws refused to pay up, so now she is going after them for general damages, medical treatment costs, loss of earnings, and pain and suffering. The McGraws have a Korean Jindo which has a reputation for being highly territorial and being unpredictable around strangers.
