Pet liability

dogsDogs can be a wonderful addition to your family. When you have a pet in the home there is the potential for a liability claim. Your homeowner, landlord, or renter insurance policy can protect you with liability coverage. Landlords should verify their tenants have a renters insurance policy that includes animal liability.

“A 2010 study showed that the average cost of a dog bite-related hospital stay was $18,200, about 50% higher than the average injury-related hospital stay.”
