    did you file a police report ??? the union for guidance re: this incident, did you file an accident report and seek medical evaluation..........these are things you have to do.........UPS be's the last thing they want you to do

    That looks like a poodle bite:wink2: or a lamprey eel....hmmmmm
    Hey some moron broke my window last week and I had a shadow the next day too.
    I think its mandated(hee hee) that every incident dictates a next day ride.

    Something tells me this is the start of the zombie plague. If you start eating humans, 72, please start with the sup that rode with you!

    "Got Bit by Dog Tuesday."

    I've heard of Dog Chapman, but not Dog Tuesday. Is he a bounty hunter too?

    Why would you contact the union? What are they going to do about it? File the injury report, seek medical attention and then submit a claim against the homeowner's insurance policy. Check to be sure the dog has had all of it's shots because if it hasn't you may have to go through a series of rabies shots as it appears the dog bite punctured your skin.

    Lol, good idea!!!

    I had strange zombie dreams last night. Weird that I then read this!!

    I would do this, but I'd have the police go to the home and get the rabies and insurance info.

    That's standard up here. I actually think it's mandatory if you involve our insurance company into anything...

    Feels like a atleast a couple of thousands. I contacted my lawyer today setting up a meeting with another lawyer in his law firm that handles these cases.

    The Union should always be told of any significant incident. They need to keep track of how often this happens, and evaluate UPS' policies and actions before, during, and after the incident. They can provide advice, since this has no doubt happened before. They can also assist with the expected difficulties that having UPS involved will surely bring.

    Excellent. I would be very interested in all updates.

    Does your management team know you're seeing a lawyer? Did they comment on it?

    No it's none of there business. I not going after UPS I'm going after the the dog owners that can't control thier dogs and knowing that they bite are in denial and still let them run around unleasded or fenced in. I went by the house during my safety ride and there happen to be a beware of dog sign on the gate to the fence in their backyard so they must know that one of there dogs could bite someone.
  20. TRUE STORY.I was bitten by a dog on the sewcond day of my new route. The canine was located in a place of business. Upon further review it was determined that the dog bite waas my fault. I had failed to yell "UPS" upon entering said business and I had failed to beep the horn.( The package car was parked a block away). Now I'm considered a "Most help needed employee". Also, mgt failed to take pictures of the injury and the location of thed incident. Three weeks later they wanted me to reanact the attack as the owner watched. Also it took mgt three weeks to code the stop as dangerous. REMEMBER MGT CONSIDERS EVERY ACCIDENT AVOIDABLE, IF THE DRIVER IN THIS SITUATION WAS WEARING PANTS(AS I WAS TOLD), THE DOG ATTACK NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.
