I was attacked by a wolf dog about 2 weeks ago and had to go to emergency care with several wounds on both arms, leg and back. I was care taker on the property with many dogs and I was asked to claim it was a stray dog. This was the second attack the animal had done. The owner took no responsibility for this and would not comply with the doctors requests regarding rabies. I had no vehicle and she was my only force of surviving.
She then put the dog down a week later. Then she offered me $150 and a vehicle…under a state of distress and the need to get out of there and on with my life I signed a document that incorrectly stated the events and released her from any responsibility for my injuries or the cost of rehabilitating my fingers. I was filled with fear because of the other 6 wolf dogs on the property.
I have been unable to identify the registered owner or register this vehicle and the $150 has only gotten gas and a hotel for 1 night along with a few meals. I only signed this and accepted this vehicle because of a strong urge to survive and realize now how foolish and desperate I was.
Is there anything I can do to get the compensation I need?
