Dog Bites and Insurance Companies - Find Out How an Attorney Can Help With Your Claim
At Fraser & Souweidane, our attorneys know that insurance coverage for dog bite injuries is typically a part of a homeowner's personal liability policy. Dog bite claims are similar to other premises liability claims. A property owner has a legal obligation to meet reasonable standards of maintaining safe conditions, including appropriate fencing of yard or kennel, restraint of a dog in public, and appropriate supervision of visitors to property. If a property owner fails to meet these standards, you could be entitled to compensation.
Unfortunately, if there is no homeowner's or renter's insurance, it's difficult to collect any compensation for a dog bite. Most homeowners have insurance, because their mortgage company requires the coverage. Most renters, however, do not. If you or a loved one was injured by a dog and you're not sure what to do, contact us for a free consultation. Call (866) 465-9095.
Dog bite injuries can be unique because the injured party may know the dog and its owner. When seeking compensation in a dog bite case, it's important to remember you are usually pursuing a settlement from the insurance company - not your friend or neighbor. We understand how to apply appropriate discretion when handling dog bite cases to avoid conflict between family, friends, or neighbors.
