What is a Dog bite claim?

The Insurance Information Institute also reported that in 2020, $853.7 million were paid by insurance companies for dog bite and injury claims.

Before we learn what is a dog bite claim, let’s know why dogs bite.
Dogs bite when they are stressed out or if they feel like there are threats around them. They are created territorial which is why their first instinct, when there’s danger, is to bite.
Dogs are also protective of their home, puppies, food, toy, and all valuable to them.
Dogs may also bite when they aren’t feeling well; they could be sick or sore due to injury or illness and might want to be left alone. Dogs also might nip and bite during play. Even though nipping during play might be fun for the dog, it can be dangerous for people.
Moreover, when you or a loved one suffered from dog bite injuries and you expect the pet’s owner to pay for your injuries, and medical expenses.

What are a dog bite claim and a dog bite lawsuit?
A dog bite claim: It is made to the insurance company of the person who was at fault, much like a claim for a car accident. Within a few months, insurance claims are typically settled.
A dog bite injury lawsuit: It is brought against the responsible party in court, not the insurer. The plaintiff is the injured victim. The defendant is the person being sued. Before the case goes to trial, the litigation process can take several months or more.

You can file for a dog bite claim after an attack as long as you notify the insurance company of your intent to file for a personal injury claim. You can file a dog bite lawsuit when the insurance company won’t accept a lowball offer for a settlement or deny your request for a claim.
