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.
