Tulsa, OK asked in Animal / Dog Law for Oklahoma

Q: My dog was left at dog resort the resort lost him and he was hit by car. The insurance is offering half bills?

The pet resort lost my dog and as a result my dog was hit by a car. This required an ER visit and surgery in order to save his life. The medical visits are not done yet but will probably be about 9000. The pet resorts insurance is only offering me 5500, leaving me to pay the rest of the medical bills. I believe the resort/insurance should be responsible for all of the medical bills.

A: You will likely need to speak to a local animal attorney to write what’s called a demand letter to ask the boarding facility to reimburse you for all the bills. You will need to gather all your bills and have them sent to the insurance company for them to reimburse you for everything. They are just trying to lowball you right now. Don’t give up the fight!
