A woman settled a dog bite lawsuit for $1 million for severe facial injuries she suffered when she was attacked by an American bulldog.

The settlement terms state she will receive $900,000 and her two children and husband will receive $33,000 each, according to her attorney.

The dog attack occurred on April 6, 2006, when the American bulldog bit her face as she was walking her own dog to pick up her children from school.

The dog owner and her mother were originally charged with a felony. Upon the daughter coming forward and agreeing to take full responsibility, the charges were dropped against the mother and reduced to a misdemeanor.

The dog was killed by animal control officials.
