DOG BITE WHILE WORKING ON THE JOB – ATTORNEYS MN
Some workers come into contact with dogs every day as part of their job. Postal workers and other mail carriers have to deliver to homes that may have a dog outside, cable and satellite workers have to go into a house with a dog, utility and repair workers are on people’s property or in their homes every day, pizza and other food delivery workers go to people’s front door. The homeowner should restrain their dog when they know a worker is coming over, but sometimes they just don’t. The homeowner often thinks their dog won’t attack, or just forgets to restrain the dog, and sometime the dog just sneaks out. As a result, our best dog bite lawyers in Minnesota have handled many of these cases over the years.
A dog attack can cause serious injury. Our injured by dog lawyers have represented people who have been pushed or knocked down by a dog resulting in a broken bone, and a dog bite can leave permanent scaring as well.
Fortunately, most homeowners have homeowners insurance to cover a dog attack of someone working at their house and dog bite injuries. At a minimum, if you are on the job when a dog attacks or bites you, you will be entitled to workers compensation for your injury. However, workers comp benefits in Minnesota are limited, so to be fully compensated, you will have to pursue a claim against the dog owner’s homeowners insurance as well. Our top dog bite attorneys for MN workers injured on the job will work to make sure you get fair and complete compensation for your injuries.
