    If you were injured while performing your job duties, then you should begin by asking your employer for the forms you need to start a worker's compensation claim. Your employer is required to provide you these forms by law. Fill them out and start the claims process. If your employer refuses, or if you were not injured while at work, then you will need to consult a lawyer.

    You have no legal obligation to allow your renter to keep that dangerous dog. As a lawyer, I am concerned that you could be liable for injuries if you do let the dog into your home and it then injures someone. But worse still, imagine how you would feel if someone, especially a child, were hurt by this animal. You may rightly feel bad for the dog owner, but it is far better that you tell her that the dog must go (and she must go too) than for you to give that dog another chance to harm someone...

    Obviously, it would be best if you could find his address, but if you cannot, you should file the complaint with all the information you have available - you do not want the statute of limitations to run out (that is: 2 years from the date of the accident). After you file the complaint, you will need to find the defendant in order to serve him the complaint, otherwise, the court will not hear your claim. You can find more information on the Department of Consumer Affairs website: http://www....
