If you were bitten or attacked by a dog while you were on the job you may be entitled to financial compensation and medical treatment at no expense to you whether from a Workers’ Compensation or Personal Injury claim.
Nonetheless, it is important for you to follow these steps:
- Seek immediate medical attention rights after being attacked, hurt and/or bitten by a dog
- Once stable you should report your injury to your employer, even if you didn’t seek professional medical attention
- Ensure that your employer begins the process of filing a Workers’ Compensation claim for your injury
If your employer does not have Workers’ Compensation or you are denied coverage for your injury you may still pursue a claim against the owner of the dog directly. This is most common if the injury occurred during a contract job. To learn more about Workers’ Compensation in Texas click here.
