I'm sorry to hear about the dog. There's a couple of things to look at here. In order to get this covered, you need to have comprehensive coverage. The only silver lining to this is these claims tend to be rated as not-at-fault accidents. This is because insurance companies see them as typically. Now, in terms of the statute of limitations for filing a claim. In the state of Arizona, you can file a claim up to two years. However, I would try to get this sorted as soon as possible. From my experience, the longer you wait to file a claim, the longer it can take to get fixed. If you're looking for more information regarding the process of filing a claim, see our guide here.
