DOG BITES CASE

Dog or other animal bites can be terrifying, and they happen more often than you think. Dogs are
animals that often feel a need to protect themselves or their owners, mark their territory, or fail to
understand their own power. Often you’ll combine that with an owner who doesn’t use discipline, fails
to train their dog, doesn’t use a leash, or otherwise allows an injury to occur through neglect. It’s a
serious problem, and one that can cause you injury and pain.

Getting your insurance company to cover an animal bite is often tricky. You may find in the aftermath of
a dog bite that the injury is much more serious, or will cost more money than you originally thought. Can
you press charges or require the dog’s owners to compensate you? Should you? How does that all work?
It can be a sensitive situation, especially if you know the dog’s owner. That’s where we come in.
