Why do I need Canine Liability Insurance?
- Dog bites someone else and injures them –
Nobody wants to think about the possibility of their dog harming someone, but every 40 seconds someone seeks medical attention for a dog bite. The average cost of a dog bite claim is approaching almost $30,000 and can be much higher.
- Dog jumps or barks – causing someone to fall –
Even if your dog doesn't bite, you can still be at a big loss if you aren't insured. For example, you could be responsible for lawsuits and medical expenses if you're walking down the street and your dog gets excited, jumps up, and knocks someone down causing them to bump their head.
- Dog damages property –
Property damage is another reason to have canine liability insurance. This covers you if your dog damages another persons property which could cost you thousands.
Canine liability insurance is essential to keep you protected in the case your dog has a mishap, and in most all cases you will be liable.
