Animal Liability

FOR DOGS AND OTHER PETS

Your dog is more than just a pet, it’s a family member. This can make it difficult to view your dog as a potential liability. Unfortunately, even the most cared for, loved, and well-trained dogs can cause an accident. Something as harmless as a playful nip or digging on your neighbor’s property can result in a messy, time-consuming, and potentially devastating lawsuit. Dog-related damage is the leading cause of homeowner’s insurance claims. That’s why animal liability coverage is an essential part of being a responsible pet owner. Most insurance companies limit dog bite insurance coverage, restrict certain breeds from coverage, or exclude animal liability coverage altogether. Whether your dog has a bite history or is a breed commonly excluded from homeowners coverage, Evolution Insurance Brokers will provide you with the coverage you need.
