Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is a dog’s owner covered by insurance?2018-09-18T20:43:50+00:00

Yes, almost all homeowner’s insurance policies protect owners against attacks and bites by their pets.

Can I bring a dog bite claim if I approached to pet it?2018-09-18T20:42:01+00:00

Yes, for the most part.  The important question is going to be whether you did anything to provoke the dog into biting.  Provocation can be established if you were yelling or hitting the dog, or if you were in the dog’s face and acting aggressive towards it.  In some cases, grabbing a dog’s tail or ear can be enough to provoke it to bite.  However, simply walking up to a dog in a friendly manner and petting it will generally not establish provocation.

What information should I collect if I was involved in a dog bite?2018-09-18T20:36:23+00:00

First and foremost, you need to get the name, address and contact information of the dog’s owner, as well as the location of where the bite occurred.  You should then get the name of the dog owner’s insurance company and try to find out any information regarding whether or not the dog has bitten anyone in the past.  Finally, photographs of the injuries are very important and should be taken as close to the time of the dog bite as possible.  It is equally as important to take photographs as the bite wound heals to show progress and establish whether or not its going to leave permanent scarring.
