Legal Question

Asked on: 10/23/13, 4:44 pm

I was recently employed by a dog obedience school/kennel, and one my very first day got attacked by one of the dogs. I ended up in the hospital with 2 fractures and multiple lacerations (9 stitches total). My work has been paying for my doctor visits but haven't offered me any compensation. Everyone says that I should sue them, what do you think? The dog didn't have any owner, and was up for adoption by my work place. I didn't sign anything before I worked there, and my boss left me unsupervised with the dog during my training. Should I sue? About how much would I get if I sued them? My case is that I missed out on at least a month's worth of work/pay, some of the damage might take 6-9 months to heal, pain and suffering, incompetence on their part, and emotional damage.
