Insurance Companies Spend Millions on Dog Bite Claims

Most people do not realize how common dog bite injuries really are. The Insurance Information Institute estimated that nearly $479 million in dog bite claims were paid by all insurance companies in 2011, spokeswoman Loretta Worters said. In 2010, it was $413 million. State Farm Insurance, one of the nation’s largest home insurers, paid more than $109 million on about 3,800 dog bite claims nationwide last year.

Not only can a dog bite experience be emotionally traumatic  but the medical bills can be costly. Medical expenses from dog attacks cost the Postal Service just over $1 million last year, officials said.
