Who Pays the Damages in a Dog Bite Lawsuit?

Dog attacks are terrifying incidents that leave victims with severe injuries and, in some cases, psychological trauma that requires counseling and therapy. However, even with these severe consequences, some people hesitate to pursue compensation for their medical bills and pain and suffering because the owner of the animal is a friend, family member, or close neighbor. In fact, in 75% of all child dog bite cases, the owner is a friend, neighbor, or family member. The reality, however, is that dog bite victims are often not paid directly by the dog owner.

If you or someone you love has been injured by a dog, the Michigan dog bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., are committed to helping you get the compensation you deserve. Do not hesitate to pursue the compensation that you and your family need. Contact us at 877-PET-BITE.

Who Pays?

Whether or not a person will have to pay for the damage done by their dog out of pocket depends on whether or not they are covered by certain types of insurance. Usually when a person is sued for a dog attack, the compensation comes from:

  • Homeowner insurance
  • Renter’s insurance
  • Motor home owner’s insurance
  • Landlord’s insurance
  • Commercial liability insurance
  • Motor vehicle insurance, if the bite occurs in the vehicle

In all cases, it depends on whether or not the owner is covered for dog bites by their insurance, as some insurance policies refuse to cover certain animals that are considered dangerous, such as Pit Bulls and Rottweilers.
