dangerous dog insurance

There are measures you can take long before a situation escalates. First, be extremely sympathetic to the dog bite victim (and their family), and show concern without necessarily accepting blame. Offering to pay for any medical services that may be required can certainly defuse the situation. Hopefully they’ll see you as someone caring and may decide not to take you to court, but make sure to have dangerous dog insurance to deal with any instances where your dog behaves badly.

Those that are held accountable for the actions of their pets will need dangerous dog insurance or another form of dog bite coverage if they are named in a lawsuit. The liability segment of the insurance industry only pays an average of 17,500 dog bite victims per year, according to the Insurance Information Institute. It is approximated that payments are made to only 2% of victims who wind up going to see a doctor for injuries resulting from dog bites.
