Ever wonder why the Geico lizard commercials never take place inside a car? Easy, because the company doesn't provide coverage for pets. At the time of this report, only one provider does – it's a service that adds to the ever-competi… more ›

when our dog was hurt in an accident State Farm paid the bill. It was considered damage to owners property. Of course this was many years ago.

What a wonderful incentive to get people to switch to Progressive. Hopefully, in the future, other insurance companies will offer this as an option.

This, alone, would not make me change insurance companies. A nice gesture though.

What a good concept! There are people out there that only have their pets. And if they were in an accident at least everyone is taken care of!

Nice gesture, by Porgressive, but the $500.00 would not entice me to change companies necessarily. I do appreciate the thought and will remember it in the future

I did not know this about Progressive. I think they are to be applauded for being inovative in their extended coverage. But $500.00 won't go cover much

While $500 is really only a token amount should the animal need medical care for a serious injury, it's a nice acknowledgment of the value of companion animals.

I agree with you. $500 wouldn't make a dent, but it is a nice gesture

Hopefully, with the increase in the importance of pet ownership, more insurance companies will start offering this.

It would be nice if more insurance companies offered it. I guess as the owner of 2 dogs I never really had thought about this.

I guess I never thought about this before. I usually don't take my pets in the car but it is a good thing to think about. I know that if you are getting paid to transfer people, etc, your insurance may not cover that. The companies try to find any loop hole so they don't have to pay.

It is a nice thought. But, $500 doesn't cover much at the ER vet.

I never considered this when having the dog jump in a car with me. If we wanted to go to the park or were going to visit friends, the dog would join us. At least one company is now helping out those hurt in accidents.

I have seen some commericals where a insurance company says that they cover your animal in case of a accident. I bet they have been getting a lot of calls since it has been on television.

Homeowner insurance does not cover pets either last I checked, so I think this is a great update in todays insurance given one of the other articles that indicated how many households have pets.

I work in insurance and one of the frequently asked questions after an accident is if there is coverage for their animal that was in the vehicle during the accident.

this brings up a good point. Always have your animal in a carrier and the carrier strapped in or fixed in while driving to prevent serious injury in case of sudden stop or accident.

Wow - this is great. Especially as it is without additional cost to the insured persons. Would love to see this trend extend to other companies.

As the years pass, general lifestyles change, and nowadays (in the country) we include our pets much more often, taking them more places.

I am actually considering changing insurance companies because of this coverage. I'm in the process of researching it. It is about time that animals get a few more rights and benefits for all of the love they give to humans.
