U.S. Postal Service Employee Sues Over Dog Bite

Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

A U.S. Postal Service employee who claims she was attacked by multiple dogs while working recently brought suit against four individuals. The mail carrier claims that the incident occurred on April 3, 2014 when, as part of her job, she was delivering mail for the U.S. Postal Service to a residence located on Kroeger Avenue in Dupo. According to court documents, before the U.S. Postal Service employee was able to deliver the mail to the residence, she was attacked by two dogs that had escaped from a screened-in porch. The female plaintiff claims that, as a result of the incident, she sustained injuries, incurred medical costs, lost wages, experienced pain and suffering and endured disability and disfigurement. The U.S. Postal Service employee brought suit on July 10 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against four individuals. Two of the individuals named as defendants in the suit reportedly owned the dogs that attacked the female plaintiff while the other two named defendants reportedly owned the resident where the female plaintiff was attacked. The lawsuit seeks an unspecified judgment, in additional to costs and other relief the court deems just.
