Most times, dog bites occur from neighbors, relatives or friends’ dogs. You should know as the injured party that the dog owners’ homeowners insurance generally will cover the damages. Dog bites are some of the most common types of homeowner’s insurance claims, and most policies include coverage for such incidents – so you shouldn’t be concerned your friend or relative will have to pay out of pocket. If the owner or keeper of the dog is a renter, it is a more challenging situation.
if you are bitten by a dog, it’s important to seek medical attention right away and document the incident with photos and witness statements. Also contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help you understand your rights and potential compensation.
