What Do You Do After A Dog Bite?

All it takes is a broken fence or a leash that is not quite strong enough. When a dog bite happens, it is not just a matter of some stitches and a trip to the emergency room. A bite can come hand in hand with muscle damage, torn ligaments and infection. The associated medical bills can be expensive, and recovery may mean you cannot work. You need and deserve someone who can stand up for you.

Whose Insurance Covers A Dog Bite Injury?

Pet owners are responsible for their pet's behavior. This is exactly the reason that homeowner's and renter's insurance policies ask if you have pets. But, not everyone in Minnesota has a homeowner's or renter's policy, and not every policy will cover the full extent of your injury. In these instances, there are a number of options.

If there is no owner, your own insurance, city insurance and other policies may have provisions that can cover your injury and expenses. Determining the appropriate policy claims and compiling the evidence and documents requires legal knowledge and experience.

As your attorney, I will help you explore your options, including filing claims with multiple insurance companies.
