Dog Bite Insurance: Protect your Family

February 13, 2013

A dog is considered to be man’s best friend. Traditionally, dogs make the perfect companion for the whole family. Still, while your dog (no matter what the breed), may be perfectly friendly and loving towards your family, incidents may arise that provoke your beloved family member. No one suspects their dog to attack others, but incidents like these are known to happen.  Unfortunately, local governments are not usually forgiving of the situation and make it difficult for families to keep their pets in situations like these. Very few people are prepared for such a situation. Many of these people do not know that dog bite insurance exists, and it can help protect their family in such a situation.
If your dog bites or attacks an individual and the bite is bad enough to require medical attention, then the hospital will report it. If they call the police, then the dog may be taken away, and will likely be put down unless you have insurance on the dog. If you have home owners or renter’s insurance, events like these are normally excluded, leaving you open to a lawsuit or loss of your dog. A victim (or the dog’s owner in some cases), may be more inclined to forgive your dog’s behavior it their expenses are covered.

Dog bite insurance can purchased to protect you and your family from events such as these. No one can ever foresee bad things happening, and when they do, it is better to be prepared. If you own a dog, then it may be in your best interest to check with your agent today, and see if you have dog bite insurance. When the unimaginable happens, you will be glad you did.
