Can I File Insurance Claim When Attacked By Dog?
Yes. Local laws usually require dog owners to keep their dogs on their property or on a leash. If a loose dog causes a serious bicycle accident, the dog's owner is liable for your injuries. This type of lawsuit is generally covered by the dog owner's homeowner's insurance policy, or the insurance of a landlord who knowingly allows conditions that let the dog run loose. This could also apply to farm animals that were not properly penned up and were able to get loose causing injury to the bicyclist whether directly or indirectly.
