When looking at a dog bite incident you have to consider the goal of the parties involved. The owner of the dog wants to be done with this process and get on with their life while minimizing their liability. The insurance company wants to pay out the least amount possible and close your claim. Once your claim is closed you can't go back and reopen it. They want to close it quickly and will pressure you to do so. While they may seem friendly and like they are just trying to help, they have an agenda. Insurance is a business after all and they want to minimize their losses. This is directly at the expense of you. What does "Minimizing losses" look like when we consider how it will affect your life? It could leave you with unpaid bills, no compensation for unrealized income if you missed work and little to no money for the pain and suffering you or your loved one endured.
