Farmers Will No Longer Pay Certain Dog Bite Claims in California

The insurance company Farmers Group, Inc., recently notified its homeowners policyholders that it will no longer pay on dog bite injury claims involving pit bulls, Rottweilers or wolf hybrids. The move, which will go into effect upon the next renewal of the policy, was made in response to an internal review the company performed of its liability claims. According to a spokesperson for Farmers, these three breeds of dog accounted for over 25 percent of all the dog bite injury claims the company pays out. Furthermore, the same three breeds were also responsible for more damage per bite, on average, than other breeds.
