The Short Answer Is It Depends
Video Transcribed: Are dog bites covered by homeowners and renters insurance? Hey everyone, Christopher Stevens here certified paralegal with the Wirth Law Office in Tulsa, Oklahoma, working in personal injury in Oklahoma. Today, we’re going to be talking about whether or not dog bites are covered by homeowners insurance or renters insurance.
Now, the short answer is it depends. A lot of policies will allow you to add additional coverage for the pets that you keep in your home, just in case they end up hurting someone else.
I know a lot of apartment complexes around here, in the Tulsa area, mandate that if you are going to have a pet on your premises, then you need to have that insurance.
Now, a lot of responsible pet owners just go ahead and get it added on anyway. So, that is a potential source of compensation, if you find yourself the victim of a bite from an animal, such as a dog.
Now, if you ever find yourself in a similar circumstance, in which you’re bit by a dog or any other animal, feel free to reach out to the Tulsa Dog Bite Attorney. We can be contacted at wirthlawoffice.com and makelaweasy.com, and as always, thanks and have a good one.
