Dog bites are a serious job hazard for the men and women who deliver our mail. The US Postal Service reports that Chicago is ranked 11th in the nation for the number of dog attacks on letter carriers. Letter carriers often hear, "don't worry, my dog won't bite-right before they are attacked.
When a US Postal letter carrier is bitten by a dog, they have a worker's compensation case because they were injured on the job, but they also have a case against the owner of the dog. McCready, Garcia & Leet are proud to have represented many letter carriers over the years who have been attacked by dogs. We handle both the worker's compensation aspect of the case with the Department of Labor as well as the third party case against the owner of the dog. To contact McCready, Garcia & Leet, please call us at (773) 779-9885.
