Can a veterinary assistant sue for a dog bite at work?

Yes, a veterinary assistant can sue the owner of a dog who bites in Michigan.  The law most likely holds true in other states.  Although some attorneys may believe this is only a worker’s compensation claim, our dog bite lawyers recently settled a lawsuit for $150,000.00 for a vet assistant who was bitten on the face by a patient of the practice.  The dog bite her as he was put on the table to start the exam.

Dog owners are strictly liable when their dog bites someone without provocation.  There are very few exceptions to this rule.  Typically, only a trespasser on private property cannot sue of attacked or bitten by a dog.
