Question:

What if the dog owner doesn’t have insurance?

Answer:

Dog Owner Doesn’t Have Insurance Often, one of the problems in a dog bite case is that the owner of the dog doesn’t have insurance. Usually, the insurance that applies to a dog bite case in Idaho will be homeowner’s insurance. If you have a renter who has a dog and who doesn’t have renter’s insurance, or somebody who is just not living in or covered by any homeowner’s insurance, you have this situation where there is no insurance coverage. For a renter, sometimes you can actually get past the renter to the landlord if the landlord had a certain amount of knowledge about the dog or the dog’s propensity or the history of the dog in causing damage to others. It’s often difficult to get there, but sometimes you can get there, and you need an attorney involved in that case to deal with it.

Unless the person who owns the dog and who doesn’t have insurance has some personal assets that you can recover from, there is often no place to actually recover the real damages. These cases can be sad and tough, but we’re happy to talk to you about yours if you want to give us a call.
