Generally, the homeowner’s insurance policy for the dog owner is available to offer coverage for any damages an individual sustained from a dog bite or attack. Many insurance companies, however, have excluded certain breed of dogs from insurance coverage, such as Pit Bulls and Rottweilers. In that situation, or in a situation where the dog owner doesn’t have a homeowner’s insurance policy (such as a renter), the owner of the dog may be subject to personal liability if their dog causes personal injuries to a person.
This is why it is very important to identify the dog owner. If you do not know who owns the dog that bit you, you may never be able to obtain financial compensation for your injuries and losses.
