18 Feb Dog Owner Liability Insurance
We have 89 million pet dogs in the US alone. Dogs give their owners unlimited amounts of joy and companionship; they make excellent guardians, are fiercely loyal, and are skilled at hunting and searching. The many varieties and breeds mean that no matter what you want from a dog, you can find a breed that’s right for your needs. But there is a downside to owning the world’s most popular pet.
No matter how well trained your dog, there’s always a risk that it will bite someone. Even playful nips and bites can result in injury. In turn, these can lead to liability claims from the injured party.
Protecting yourself with dog owner liability insurance is the best way to safeguard against biting claims. Most people assume their home insurance policies cover this, but the coverage is often severely restricted, especially if you own what’s considered a “dangerous breed.”
Biting is All Too Common
Dogs can bite for a multitude of reasons. They can bite when startled or when protecting themselves or their owners. They can bite if angered or irritated. They may even be trained to bite under some circumstances. Whatever the reason, bites are extremely common.
In the US, there are around 4.7 million dog bite incidents per year, with over 800,000 of them, resulting in medical care. There have even been fatalities caused by biting dogs, with 39 deaths recorded in 2017. Shockingly, almost three-quarters of these fatalities were caused by family dogs.
With bites being so common, it’s never been more important to ensure you have adequate dog owner liability insurance in place to protect yourself.
