Victims of a dog bite or dog attack can be left with permanent scars and disfigurement.  Often, dog bite victims will require emergency medical care for sutures, plastic surgery, and rabies shots.  Many times, a plastic surgeon will not even attempt to repair the scar for several years after the attack, leaving the victim with a disfiguring and conspicuous scar for everyone to see.

Federal Express Driver Dog Bites & Attacks | Michigan Fed Ex Dog Lawyer

Our dog bite and attack attorneys in Michigan represent Federal Express in dog bite and animal attack cases.  Federal Express drivers are often the victims of dog bite and animal attacks while delivering packages to their customers. Federal Express drivers have to get out of their truck and drop off packages at your front or back doors, creating vulnerability to attacks from unleashed and unrestrained dogs in the neighborhood. Federal Express attacks by other animals are also not uncommon.

4.7 million people per year sustain a dog bite, states the American Veterinary Medical Association. Of those 4.7 million individuals, 800,000 receive medical attention for their dog bite.

Claims From Injuries Sustained During Dog Bite & Attack

If a Federal Express driver suffers an injury from a dog bite or is attacked by a dog or other animal, such as a cat, rabbit, or ferret, while at an individual’s home, the Federal Express driver has two types of claims arising out of the dog bite or attack under Michigan law.

  • The first claim is a claim for workers compensation benefits, where the injured worker will receive wage loss benefits during the period of disability from the attack, and also receive medical expense benefits for all treatment related to injuries from the animal bite and/or attack.
  • The second claim is against the dog owner or animal owner for pain and suffering damages resulting from injuries from the animal bite or attack. Dog attacks often result in significant scarring and disfigurement and bone fractures. Under the Michigan law for dog bite injuries and attacks, the owner or keeper of the dog may be strictly liable for the attack and for failing to keep the dog properly leashed. Additionally, the animal owner will be responsible for repaying the workers compensation benefits paid out by the Federal Express Company. (more…)

Mail Carrier Dog Bite Injuries in Michigan

The National Dog Bite Prevention Week is mid-May.  Last year alone, more than 5,600 mail carriers were victims of dog attacks according to the U.S. Postal Service.  The U.S. Postal Service also states, an average of 10 letter carriers suffer from dog related injuries every day!

Our dog bite and attack attorneys in Michigan represent United States postal workers and mail carriers in dog bite and animal attack cases.  Mail carriers are often the victims of dog bite and animal attacks while delivering mail to their customers.  Because many postal workers deliver mail by foot, they are extremely vulnerable to attacks from unleashed and unrestrained dogs in the neighborhood.

Common Victims Of Dog Attacks & Bites

According to the Humane Society of the U.S. the top three most frequent victims of dog bites are: small children, the elderly and the USPS letter carriers.  In fact, recent statistics show the annual number of dog attacks exceeds the reported instances of measles, whooping cough, and mumps combined. Dog Bite victims account for up to five percent of emergency room visits.

Medical expenses, workers’ compensation, legal costs, delivery curtailment, carrier replacement, and other costs associated with dog bite accidents are estimated to exceed $25 million annually for the Postal Service. The cost in employee pain and suffering cannot be measured.

Even a friendly dog can become suddenly territorial.  Mail carriers also become the target of attack because they are usually moving quickly and confidently and more likely to attract a dog’s attention and stimulate its desire for a chase that may end up in serious or even fatal injuries. (more…)
