What Are Your Rights For Dog Bites On The Job?

You May Have Two Separate Injury Cases

If you were attacked by a dog in a work-related incident, you may have both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury suit against the dog's owner. You deserve to be fully compensated for injuries suffered while you were simply doing your job.

At Ellis Law Offices LLP in Worcester, we will pursue both your workers' comp benefits and your claim against the pet owner if you suffered dog bites or related injuries. We will coordinate these overlapping cases to protect your rights and maximize your benefits and recovery of damages.

If You Were Bitten By A Dog While Working

We represent delivery personnel, landscapers, utility company workers, contractors working in the home and other employees who were bitten or attacked by dogs in the course of employment.

  • We have extensive experience with Massachusetts workers' compensation law, helping clients secure full medical benefits as well as disability pay while they are off the job.
  • We have a solid track record in personal injury dog bite claims. These are typically covered as claims under homeowners insurance, but we will go to trial if necessary to establish the dog owner's liability and to extract full compensation.

In addition to bite wounds, workers may be injured when they are chased by a vicious dog or knocked down by a big friendly one. Many victims suffer scarring or require reconstructive surgery, especially for bites to the face or hands. Getting mauled dog, or any dog bite involving a child, might also merit damages for emotional trauma.

We work with medical professionals to make a case for every element of damages to ensure our clients are fully and fairly compensated, especially for a dog attack that puts them out of work or leaves them disfigured.
