Question:

Does insurance usually cover dog bites?

Answer:

Dog Bite Insurance Coverage A common question if you’ve been a victim of a dog attack, a dog bite, or a loved one, is whether homeowner’s insurance covers that. Of course, on the flip side, if your dog attacks somebody else, then you want to know the answer to that, too. A call came in to one of our attorneys recently from a dog bite victim. What our attorney explained is that if the dog bite owner, the dog owner, owns a home, more likely than not, there isn’t going to be insurance coverage, but not necessarily. That’s a reason to call us so we can verify that because there are provisions now in most homeowner insurance policies that excludes certain breeds. If the insurance company says your breed of dog has no insurance coverage, then there may not be insurance coverage, unless you pay extra.

Those are situations where you really do need to call us so we can help analyze the situation. Now, if you are a dog owner and your dog has bitten somebody, start with your insurance agent and ask them that question. If you’re a little scared because you go, well, my dog is a mix and whatever, maybe that’s a reason to call a lawyer. Probably not our firm because we just represent victims, but if you call us, we can refer you to a lawyer who can help determine whether there’s going to be insurance coverage for you if it’s not clear. Whatever the situation is, remember that insurance coverage is usually the way that you’re going to get compensation for what happened to you or your loved one. If it’s not clear, or even if it is clear, call us. We’ll give you the guidance you need. The call is free. The information is free. If you or a loved one has been a victim of a dog bite or a dog attack, we really are here for you.
