At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our dog bite attorneys represent victims who suffer injuries after being attacked throughout the State of Michigan. This includes technicians bitten by a canine while working on the job and doing a repair in an individual’s home.
Technician’s workers attacked by an animal while legally on the property and without provocation of the canine do have legal rights. There are two types of claims a victim may be able to file and they include:
- Workers Compensation Benefits – the injured repairman will receive lost wage benefits if there is a period of time in which he/she cannot work due to the resulting injuries of the attack. The victim may also be able to receive medical expense benefits for all treatment related to the dog bite injuries.
- Sue Dog Owner for Noneconomic Damages – noneconomic damages are also known as pain and suffering damages. Pain and suffering generally includes: (1) physical pain and suffering; (2) mental anguish; (3) fright and shock; (4) denial of social pleasure and enjoyments; (5) embarrassment, humiliation or mortification.
In a recent lawsuit filed by our Michigan dog bite injury lawyers, a technician who was at a home on a scheduled visit to repair their heater was viciously attacked by the home owner’s dog. The dog suddenly and without provocation bit the technician’s hand and violently shook it back and forth. As a result of the attack, our client suffered two large bite marks on the palm of his hand and ulnar neuropathy. In addition, he was unable to return to work for two months due to the fact that the duties of his position required two hands.
If you are a technician or repairman bitten by a dog while on the job you do have legal rights. These attacks often times result in possible psychological issues as well as serious physical injuries, including abrasions, lacerations, punctures, tissue loss, fractured bones, scars, infections such as rabies, and more.
