Completely hypothetical, but if hitting a dog cause damage to your car, could you go after the owner for reimbursement?

in a way yes. if a farmer has a cow and he did not have a gate and the cow are free running and cause an issue, he would be held responsible to an extend. How and to what degree is another story.

Yup... make sure you tell ICBC that the animal hit you, otherwise they will screw you over. Too bad the same reason doesn't work for retarded peds.

hitting animals is not a collision claim, its a comprehensive claim. ICBC will only screw you if you cant prove that you actually hit an animal. i have heard of people bringing dead deer into claim centers up north to show that they actually hit a deer and not a wall or a pole, so that ICBC pays the claim as comprehensive and their insurance is not affected. if you ever hit an animal and your car is damaged, always take pictures

Another thing to do is NOT wash your car...if you've got blood, fur, etc. on your car, leave it! If you have NO proof that you hit an animal, your claim will be processed as a collision claim. In this case, I can understand why people would think they're getting 'screwed' by ICBC, but seriously, if you're an adjuster and someone tells you that they hit a dog but there's no proof that an animal was involved, what are you going to do?

This is not always the case. Many rural areas (we're talking, REALLY rural, like in the Interior, not rural like PoCo) are designated "free range" and cattle are not required to be fenced in. You'd still be covered under a comprehensive claim, but the rancher would not be held liable.

More to the point, don't swerve to miss an animal - if you swerve and run into something else, that's your fault.
