I hope this has not happened to anyone else on the board, but I'm hoping to get an idea of how to handle this. Friday morning I was cutting an overgrown property for a mortgage company( the property had recently been foreclosed on by the lender.) We handle a number of forclosed properties and after inspecting the yard for hidden "land mines" ( trash , rocks, carjacks, etc.) that could wreck the walk behind that I use for these properties I proceed to cut the yard only to be attacked and bitten by a neighbors dog whose leash reached from his dog house about 20 feet into the yard I was in. He got me on the back of the calf, and when I turned around to crack him on the head he got my hand and ripped open my ring finger from the knuckle forward. Long story short after a trip to emergency room and 6 stitches later, I am now faced with what I should compensated for this ordeal. I talked with owner, they will cover all medical expenses and are very sorry. but I am also in lot of pain and can't hold any trimmers or other equipment at this time. What would you do??? Sue for damages??? I hate to be a prick ,but I am really pissed off over this whole ordeal. Any input is appreciated, and I hope that this doesn't happen to anyone else out there. On a good day we all have enough to deal with already. Thanks for letting me vent, and I am curious as to what others think.
