Increasing Dog Attacks For Postal Workers

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Dog Bite

Online shopping is a blessing; let’s get real. At the tip of your fingertips and from the comfort of your home, you get to purchase all your essentials, from bathroom products to groceries. Most main grocery stores have a store-side pick-up, but there are some in which you can actually get the products delivered to your house. When packages come by your place, they don’t just magically appear. Someone actually brings them to your front step. This means that strangers are walking up to your porch every time you purchase an item and get it delivered. We know that postal service workers aren’t really strangers. If you work from home, then you may be really familiar with your local package delivery person. However, if you are always away from your door, then you may never know who it is that is dropping by.

So, what does this have to do with dog attacks? Well, due to the increase in online purchasing, more packages are getting delivered than ever. This is good business for delivery services, but it also means an increase in injuries for those who are delivering. Long Beach is tied for 15th in the nation for postal carriers getting attacked by dogs and animals. The greater Los Angeles area is 4th in the nation for dog attacks. The highest-ranked city was Houston, Texas, followed by San Diego and Cleveland, which tied in second. Chicago and Dallas are tied for third. These are big cities where the large population is served in greater proportion by package carriers. Houston, Texas, had 77 carriers attacked by dogs. Los Angeles had 56, and Long Beach experienced 32 carriers attacked by dogs.

Dogs are amazing creatures who are loyal. Their main goal is to love and protect. Some breeds are more aggressive than others, while some have more of a bite. In a test for temperament and aggression, typically, smaller breeds have worse temperaments than larger breeds. However, they have smaller jaws, which lead to fewer injuries. So a Chihuahua may have a worse temperament than a pit bull, but the pit bull will always have a stronger, more ferocious bite than a Chihuahua any day. Even though there is an increase in carrier attacks, we can see that dogs, as loving as they are, aren’t always in a loving mood. Sometimes, they feel it necessary to assert dominance, especially when someone is on their property.

Our dog attack lawyers at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg are well aware of the laws regulating animals in people’s homes. The owners of the animals are 100% responsible for their pets. They are responsible for caretaking, keeping the dog on a leash, and ensuring that the dog is safe for the public. If you were injured from a dog attack while permitted to be on someone’s property, then you are able to create a dog attack claim for compensation to help with whatever medical bills you may have from the injury.
