Cat Pushes Old Dog Down the Stairs – Is There Insurance Coverage for this Incident?

by | Dec 11, 2021 | Firm News

Cat pushes his owner’s elderly dog DOWN THE STAIRS in viral video – sparking a fierce debate about whether or not the clever feline did it on purpose
A woman, who is believed to be based in the U.S. and goes by the username @Queefly online, captured the moment and posted it on TikTok
In the clip, which got more than 29 million views, the TikToker’s 15-year-old Labrador Retriever, Bailey, could be seen struggling to get down the stairs
Suddenly, her cat, Snickers, came up behind the canine and started biting and pawing at her leg
The dog – who was wearing an ace bandage around one of her legs – jumped forward trying to get out her way, only to slip and fall down the stairs
The video caused a major debate between its viewers, with some slamming the cat for its actions, and others accusing the dog of being ‘dramatic’

The question of course for a personal injury lawyer does the dog have a claim against the cat? The dog has a claim but the bigger question is what insurance coverage is there for this claim? If it’s negligence there is coverage and if it was intentional there isn’t coverage.
