Dog Bite Injuries: What’s Covered?

Dogs are among the friendliest pets in the world. Unfortunately, even the most well behaved dog can cause injury to an innocent person.

If you are the victim of an injury caused by a dog, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. This will ensure that you are in the hands of a qualified medical team. From there, it is time to learn more about your legal rights.

Generally speaking, your home insurance policy will cover damages associated with the attack. This can include:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Scarring
  • Rabies immunization
  • Out of pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering

You may also be able to collect from the owner’s insurance company. The good thing is this: there is money to be recovered. Conversely, it is not as simple as it sounds to receive compensation for your injuries.

If you are injured by a dog, seek immediate medical attention. From there, contact us to learn more about your legal rights.
