Some dogs are not as nice as other dogs
We love dogs. They provide unconditional love and companionship and become part of the family.
However, some dogs can have aggressive tendencies and can cause serious injuries to others. People injured by dog bites and attacks may suffer from emotional distress and anxiety, permanent scars, torn skin or muscle, serious infections, or death.
Not All Dog Bite Injuries Are Covered by Insurance
Because most dog bite cases are brought against the dog owner’s insurance company, it is important to find out if the insurance covers them. Many insurance policies exclude specific breeds because they are identified as too dangerous to insure.
Without insurance, the only option for the person harmed by the dog may be to go after the dog owner for recovery of medical expenses, property damage, and other damages. The following breeds are usually excluded from insurance policies:
- German Shepherds
- Pit Bulls
- Mixed Breeds
- Wolf hybrids
- Staffordshire Terriers
Some dog owners may choose to carry a special pet liability insurance policy or personal umbrella liability insurance to extend coverage for dog bite injuries.
What Can You Recover?
California has a statute of limitations of two years for personal injury accidents, which means a person who was injured by a product must file their lawsuit within two years of the date of injury, otherwise they may forfeit their rights. If you have a personal injury case, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Wrongful death
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of normal life
- Loss of consortium
