Asking about an uninsured dog bite owner is a common question because oftentimes, someone may be a renter or they don’t have homeowner’s insurance and there’s no insurance coverage for them to cover for their dog that attacked you. What can you do?

The answer to that question is something a little more complicated than saying there’s one easy answer. First of all, if you have health insurance, your health insurance is responsible for taking care of the treatment. You’ve got to get the treatment for that injury taken care of. There may be muscle damage, or nerve damage. There may be reconstructive or plastic surgery that is necessary, especially if it’s a bite to the face, or the arms, or somewhere that scarring can be severe. All of that can be covered under your health insurance.

However, what are you going to do about the injuries, the long-term effects of this? Is there any type of insurance that may cover that? It’s possible that your homeowner’s insurance may afford you some coverage for this, but there’s no way of knowing that unless someone does a full review of your insurance policy.
