Your dog is more than just a pet, it’s a family member. This can make it difficult to view your dog as a potential liability. Unfortunately, even the most cared for, loved, and well-trained dogs can cause an accident. Something as harmless as a playful nip or digging on your neighbor’s property can result in a messy, time-consuming, and potentially devastating lawsuit. Dog-related damage is the leading cause of homeowner’s insurance claims. That’s why animal liability coverage is an essential part of being a responsible pet owner. Most insurance companies limit dog bite insurance coverage, restrict certain breeds from coverage, or exclude animal liability coverage altogether. Whether your dog has a bite history or is a breed commonly excluded from homeowners coverage, Prime Insurance Company will provide you with the coverage you need.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year and about 885,000 require medical attention for these injuries; about half of these are children. Senior citizens are the second most common dog bite victims.
In 2019, the average cost for a dog bite insurance claim was $44,760.
