TX a Leader in Dog Bites

If you didn’t know, it’s officially National Dog Bite Prevention week.

And if you didn’t know that, then you probably don’t know this: “Last year in Texas, we had enough (dog injury) claims that it ranked the state number three, 165 claims in the state, with an average claim cost of about $30,000,” State Farm’s Chris Pilcic told KTSA News.

“Nationally, while we recorded the fewest number of dog related injury claims in a decade, we paid a record amount on those,” he said.

He said it’s not just bites that count as a claim.

“That can be anything from a bite to someone running away from an animal and being injured, falling and breaking a bone or having a laceration,” he said.

He said make sure you’re properly covered.
