According to the article “Auto Insurers Take On Pets” by Donna Goodison on BostonHerald.com, more and more Boston auto insurance companies are offering insurance policies for customers’ pets. Pets can actually be covered in the case of an accident.
Ever since Massachusetts deregulated the auto insurance industry back in 2008, at least 5 total companies have included pet injury coverage as an optional choice for policies. This is becoming a common practice among auto insurance companies as more customers express their desire for this type of protection. Many people consider their pets like part of the family and a pet insurance policy gives them the comfort they need to ensure their pets are taken care of in case of an accident. If you think you would find this option valuable check with your insurer to see if they have something similar available.
