Generally, yes, if you are injured by a dog bite while working on a property and use workers compensation insurance to pay for treatment, that carrier can seek reimbursement when you win a damage claim against the dog owner.
This is true of private health insurance carriers as well, and even entities like Medicare.
While it may seem counterintuitive that you’d have to repay your health costs after a dog bite, it isn’t a reason to avoid seeking compensation for your injuries caused by a dog bite.
When you work with an experienced dog bite attorney in New Orleans, you stand the best chance of collecting full compensation for your injuries, including any medical treatments you may need in the future.
When people attempt to negotiate these cases on their own, they typically walk away with only a fraction of the full award possible, and are often stuck receiving bills from insurers that may exceed the award itself.
Don’t take chances when you’ve been bitten by a dog on the job in New Orleans.
The attorneys at The Gertler Law Firm have been helping people in New Orleans recover after injuries for nearly 30 years, and we’ve helped our clients recover more than $100,000,000 in settlements and awards in that time.
