19 Nov 2009 Give Your Pooch the Best Christmas Present: Pet Injury Coverage!
Pet owners spend a whopping $40 billion on their furry friends each year. That’s enough to buy a gallon of gas for every man, woman and child in the United States … 44 times.
Insurance companies haven’t always viewed pets with the same passion as their owners. If you’re in an accident, generally everyone in the car – except your four-legged friend – is covered. For some insurance companies this has changed; let’s talk pet injury coverage.
Some insurance companies today are now recognizing Fido and Fifi as family members. Commerce Insurance offers an endorsement to your personal auto policy for about $20 a year. Safety insurance offers pet injury coverage as well, under their Safety Shield Plus; the cost is $35 per year. When collision coverage is purchased on the vehicle, pet injury coverage extends to cats and dogs and pays up to $500 if your dog or cat is hurt or dies as a result of a covered collision accident.
And, best of all, if you’re a AAA member, the coverage is free!
