It's a Stereotype, but Postal Workers Encounter This Far Too Often

It's a stereotype, but the idea of postal workers encountering unleashed dogs on their route is all too common.

Recently, a postal worker was able to escape with only minor injuries after a dog attacked him on his route. The only reason he was able to escape without more serious injuries was due to neighbors coming to his help and rescuing him from the dog. 

Depending on the severity of the bite, the location of the bite and the dog's health, a victim may experience a range of injuries and complications from a dog bite, including:

  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Infection
  • Tissue or nerve damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Disabilities or impairments
  • Future emotional distress such as a fear of dogs

Quite often, children are bitten. A dog bite may have a larger impact on a young victim. We handle cases for victims of all ages, including children.

Dog owners are strictly liable. This means the dog owner is responsible for controlling the dog and preventing any attacks. This is true even if the dog was not on the owner's property and the dog was on your property, it is still the responsibility of the owner to protect others from his or her dog.

If you're bitten by a dog, let us fight to ensure your rights are Eric, Randy, and Sarah at 515-225-4485. We'll put our expertise to work for you and get you the compensation you deserve!
