Q: My daughter was employed by a dog daycare for a very short time when she was bitten trying to stop 2 dogs from fighting

She is 19 and received virtually no training on how to handle situations like that other than to squirt them with a water bottle. There were 3 employees watching 70 dogs. She wasn’t even allowed to leave to get medical treatment even though she was bitten quite badly. What legal actions can she take against the daycare?

A: She may be entitled to Workers Compensation and/or claims against the dogs' owners. She should seek out an attorney who handles comp & personal injury claims.
