Then why do you bother to file a workman's comp claim if you are going directly to court? And what if the dog owner is a tenant not a homeowner and the landlord specified no pets? How else will the victims claim be paid? If the employees injury occurred while on the employers time it's a workman's comp claim at least initially. You're ASSUMING that the dog owner has insurance or other assets available for the victim to collect from.Wrong. You sue homeowners insurance and workers comp. workers comp case goes first, then if you win homeowners case, you have to repay comp settlement. I’ve seen your posts on brown cafe. You’re a know it all. This will be the last time I respond to you in this thread. You’re wrong. First you said they can’t sue the owners because they might not have liability on the dogs. Lolol. That statement makes no sense. You sue homeowners when you get bit by a dog. Doesn’t even matter if the dogbite happened on the persons property. They could be ten miles from home walking their dog in a park. You sue homeowners.
