Question:

Will homeowners' insurance cover a dog bite incident in North Augusta?

Answer:

Is a Dog Bite Injury Covered by Homeowners' Insurance?I was recently contacted by someone from South Carolina who was attacked by a dog. One of their first questions was, “Who actually pays for my injuries? Is this covered by insurance?” The answer to that is, most of the time, yes, it is covered by insurance. Homeowner’s insurance policies cover many different things and are much broader than a typical automobile insurance policy. Most times, those homeowner’s insurance policies will cover dog bites, even if those bites occur off of the property.

The important thing is that you hire an attorney early on in the process, so that attorney can go ahead and get in touch with the insurance carrier and at-fault party, and go ahead and start developing the case and see what is in that insurance policy. You want to make sure that you get an attorney who is a trial lawyer, who has experience in interpreting insurance policies and experience in handling dog bite cases.
