Getting a new pet can be an exciting opportunity for a family. It means adding new responsibilities to your plate, too. If you are investing in a dog or another larger animal that could cause damage to others or put you at risk for damage in your home, it may be time to speak to your insurance agent.
Your homeowner’s insurance can help to cover damages caused by your dog or other covered pet. The key is making sure your insurance company knows that you have a pet in the home.
At Bronson Insurance Services, our team can help you update your insurance coverage to ensure your new pet has the protections necessary to eliminate or reduce your risk. If you are in Oak Creek, WI, or the surrounding area, contact our attorney to help you.
Why Update Your Home Insurance Policy
Let your insurance company know you have added a new pet to your home. You want to be sure that your policy offers enough coverage to protect you should the pet cause damage. That could include, for example, damage to the fence in your backyard or breaking an expensive vase.
In addition to this, depending on your existing policy and your needs, you may need to add more protection for injuries and other liability claims. If your new puppy jumps up on the neighbor and cuts them with their nails, it may be nothing more than an accident, but it may also be an expensive medical bill. Your insurance may cover it if you have updated them.
