Insurance Coverage for Dog Bites
Harrisburg Dog Bite Attorneys Represent Your Rights
Homeowner insurance policies commonly cover dog bite claims, especially if the dog is considered to be part of a potentially vicious breed. While you may be able to collect from the dog owner's insurance company, don't sign anything until you speak with one of the experienced attorneys at Metzger Wickersham. You could be eligible for more than what the insurance company has to offer.

If you are injured by someone's dog, their insurance will likely cover the costs of your injuries and other damages.
Some insurance companies, however, do take steps to limit exposure to dog bite claims because of the amount of loss. Certain companies require owners of specific breeds to sign a liability waiver, others will simply charge those owners more, and some will not offer insurance at all. In those circumstances, owners can get around this by taking the dog to classes that are designed to modify their aggressive behaviors.
