How Insurance Companies Look At Dog Bites

If the owner of the dog owns his or her own home, the owner will likely carry a special policy or rider to cover dog bites. While it may seem inviting to settle quickly for a home owner policy settlement, remember: that insurance company is not working for you.

We urge you not to sign anything with the insurance company until you have contacted a dog bite attorney with Recht Law Offices. You may be entitled to damages above and beyond what the insurance policy can offer you.

Owners of attack-prone breeds are likely to carry such coverage. This alphabetical list notes some breeds found to have aggressive tendencies:

  • Chihuahuas
  • Chow Chow
  • Cocker Spaniel
  • Dachshunds
  • Giant Schnauzers
  • Llasa Apso
  • Miniature Pinschers
  • Pekinese
  • Pit Bull
  • Rottweiler
  • Toy Poodles
