Rochester Uber Eats Delivery Person Dog Bite Accidents With the ever-increasing popularity of online delivery platforms like Uber Eats, customers can effortlessly order food through their smartphones. Regrettably, delivering the food is not always as easy as ordering it. Uber Eats drivers often face numerous risks when picking up and dropping off food. One of the biggest risks for Uber Eats delivery people is aggressive dogs. For example, a man who delivered food to support his family, sustained multiple deep puncture wounds on his right arm and left hand while dropping off a McDonald’s order. After the dog burst through a gate and latched on to him, it took two men to pry the dog off of him. Understandably, to this day, he still gets terrified and goes into shock when he thinks about his dog attack.

Unfortunately, this dog attack is anything but an isolated incident. Oftentimes, canines attack Uber Eats drivers without so much as a growl or bark. Dog owners have a legal obligation to ensure that their animals are always kept under control and do not cause harm to others. Far too many owners do not believe that their canines are dangerous and do little to prevent dog bite accidents. No wonder why roughly 4.5 million victims suffer dog bites throughout the United States each year. Were you seriously wounded by a hostile dog while working for Uber Eats in Rochester, New York?
