Dog Bites and Your Insurance
Ah, that Rottweiler puppy is so cute, you adopted a Doberman, your family gave you a pit bull, what do they all have in common - they are three of the top breeds blacklisted by insurance companies. In some states insurance has been denied to households with certain breeds. Why? Because, according to Allstate Insurance, the average claim was close to $30,000. And in Washington, the state’s Supreme Court jury awarded $2.2 million to a woman who was attacked by pit bulls.
