Dog bite claim on a home insurance policy

Every insurance company is different when it comes to home claims. Any claim that is filled will impact their rate and as you mentioned you can even be dropped by your insurance company.

Why does my dog's breed matter to my insurance company?

Typically, the liability portion of your renters and home policies apply to yours pets in the event they bite someone. Fair or not, insurance companies use breed-specific information to predict if they'll be liable for a bite claim.

Coverage & Claims

My dog was injured in a car accident, can I file a claim for his vet bills?

Insurance companies handle injuries to pets differently. Some consider your pet as your personal property and thus consider their injuries in your policy while others offer an additional Pet Injury Coverage or no coverage options at all.

Coverage & Claims

Do I need to add my dog to my car insurance?

Luckily, your dog wouldn't need to be listed on your policy to receive injury coverage resulting from a crash if your policy provides for it. However, pet injury coverage is not offered by every company, in every state, or for every animal so you would need to check the specifics of your policy or call your insurance company.
