Dog bites and other dog-related injuries accounted for more than one third of all homeowners liability claim dollars paid out in 2017, costing almost $700 million.
That’s according to the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) and State Farm, the largest writer of homeowners insurance in the United States.
An analysis of homeowners insurance data by the I.I.I. found that the number of dog bite claims nationwide increased to 18,522 in 2017, compared to 18,122 in 2016, which was a 2.2 percent increase.
The average cost per claim increased by 11.5 percent. The average cost paid out for dog bite claims was $37,051 in 2017, compared with $33,230 in 2016.
“The increase in the 2017 average cost per claim could be attributed to an increase in severity of injuries,” said Kristin Palmer, chief communications officer with the I.I.I. “But the average cost per claim nationally has risen more than 90 percent from 2003 to 2017, due to increased medical costs as well as the size of settlements, judgments and jury awards given to plaintiffs.”

E&O Claim Supervisor
Utica National often sees Agents' Errors & Omissions (E&O) claims from insureds as the result of errors when moving a client's claims-made policy to a new carrier. This usual occurs when a carrier decides to non-renew a risk and the agency must find a market to write replacement coverage. When securing replacement coverage for claims-made risks, there are several issues to address before coverage is written with a new carrier.
