What happens if I'm attacked by a dog while I'm working at someone's house? Hello, my name is Ty Wilson. I'm a Georgia personal injury and workers’ compensation attorney, practicing law in the state of Georgia. And in this type of situation, I have actually known someone who has been attacked by a homeowner while they were working helping them. I believe it was with their air conditioning unit.
And what happens in that type of situation is you potentially have two claims. The first would be a workers compensation claim. That claim would provide you a certain set of benefits, and then the personal injury may provide you a second set of benefits. There are different things that have to be proven. There are different things that have to happen for each of these two different claims.
However, if structured properly and you would want an attorney who handles both types of claims like that, you can obtain benefits for both. At least that's the idea. And that certainly depends on the nature and severity or how severe and how bad the injuries are. I hope that information has been helpful, and we will see you in the next video.
