Michigan UPS Driver Dog Bites & Attacks | UPS Driver Dog Attack Lawyer

Our dog bite and attack attorneys in Michigan represent United Postal Service (UPS) in dog bite and animal attack cases.  United Postal Service drivers are often the victims of dog bite and animal attacks while delivering packages to their customers. UPS 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.  According to statistics, each day, about 1,000 U.S. citizens require emergency care treatment for a dog bite injury totaling nearly 4.7 million people each year.

Claims From Injuries Sustained During Dog Bite & Attack

If a UPS 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 UPS 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.
