Can I be evicted if my renters policy is canceled?

"My dog bit a man while I was taking her for a walk. The man wants my renters insurance info, but I'm afraid if he files a claim, my insurer will cancel my policy and I'll be evicted from my apartment as a result. Am I being paranoid or is my fear of eviction justified?

“Most renters insurance companies will not cancel your policy due to a single claim. However, if you’ve had two or more claims within the past one to three years, then they may have the ability to non-renew your policy when it expires.
If carrying renters insurance is required as a term of your lease, your landlord would have the ability to go through eviction proceedings if you let your policy cancel/expire without obtaining new coverage. “
