Q: Who will pay for the medical expenses after an animal attack?
If you have insurance, you should provide that information to the hospital and doctors for processing. No insurer will pay your bills and medical expenses as you go. The insurance company will only pay one lump sum to conclude your claim. Usually, the animal's owners will have homeowner's insurance which should cover injuries caused by the homeowner's pets. Likewise, if the dog attack was on someone else's property, they usually have medical payments coverage which will pay medical expenses up to whatever the chosen limits are, usually $1 - 5,000.00.
