Did you know that if you get bitten by a dog, the dog’s owner may have to pay damages to you? In fact, according to the Insurance Information Institute, dog-related injury claims accounted for more than one third of all homeowners insurance liability claim dollars (more than $570 million) in 2015!
In the case of a dog bite, the owner’s liability is dependent on several factors, including where the dog bite took place, if the dog was leashed, and if the dog has been deemed “vicious.”
