Frequently with dog bite injuries, homeowners insurance, which would usually cover injuries sustained in a person’s home, explicitly discludes incidents of dog bites.  I have a case right now where this is just the situation and there may not be coverage.  Luckily the owner has a good home and we do investigate whether there are assets there that can be attached.  Do they have enough equity in their homes, assents in the bank, a good job, etc. with which they could pay a judgment.  So, even if there is not insurance, there is a possibility of recovering for injuries sustained by dog bite.
