Employees rely on the equipment they use for the job. When equipment fails...accidents happen...injuries happen.
It is every employee's right to pursue any or all benefits provided under the workers' compensation laws. If it can be proven that an employer has taken action in retaliation for the filing of a claim, the injured employee may want to consult with an attorney about filing a civil lawsuit.

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

He's incredibly fortunate to only be missing a few days of work instead of potentially missing a hand.
