Beverly Hills
Dog Bite Attorney

Beverly Hills Dog Bite

Have you been harmed as a result of a dog bite accident in the Beverly Hills area? If so, you should review your case with a Beverly Hills dog bite accident attorney at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg in a free consultation. You may be eligible to recover compensation for your past and future bills and related losses. The experts at our Beverly Hills dog bite accident law firm will explain your legal options and provide the effective representation you deserve.

At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, we believe there are no bad dogs, only bad dog owners. Mr. Kornberg has handled hundreds of dog bite cases and recovered millions for his clients in California. Mr. Kornberg works on a contingency fee basis which means you pay no feeds until your case is successfully resolved.

COMMON DOG BITE ACCIDENT INJURIES IN BEVERLY HILLS

Such factors as the size of a dog and how aggressive it tends to be will influence the types of injuries a dog bite victim may sustain. Common dog bite injuries include the following:

  • Facial disfigurement
  • Muscle, ligament, and tendon tears
  • Severed arteries and/or veins
  • Broken bones
  • Severe permanent scarring
  • Puncture wounds
  • Lacerations
  • Emotional and/or mental harm
  • Severe PTSD, anxiety, and depression
  • Infections

Dog attacks can also cause injuries resulting from accidents that are byproducts of an initial dog attack. For example, if a dog attempts to bite you chase you, or jump on you, you might fall and strike your head, resulting in a traumatic brain injury.

These injuries can result in such losses as medical bills, lost wages, and more. You can seek compensation for these losses by hiring the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg.

WHAT YOU MUST DO AFTER A DOG BITE ACCIDENT IN BEVERLY HILLS

Again, numerous factors will contribute to the severity of the injuries a victim may sustain when a dog bites them. If you were to be bitten or attached, you might not sustain any severe visible injuries. Thus, you may assume that you do not need to seek medical attention. Don’t make this mistake. It is always wise to see a doctor as soon as possible after a dog bite accident or dog attack. Even if you think that a dog bite has not resulted in any broken bones or other serious injuries, if left untreated, it’s possible for a dog to bite to lead to an infection or rabies.

If you have been bitten by a dog, see a doctor right away. At the very least, doing so will give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing a medical professional has confirmed that you do not need to worry about any injuries or infections. On the other hand, if a doctor finds that you do need care, you will be more likely to have a better and faster recovery if you receive the treatment, you need as soon as possible.

Seeing a doctor soon after your dog bite attack will improve your chances of recovering compensation later. When filing a claim with an insurance company, it is important to provide evidence showing a link between the accident in question and the injuries that you sustained. You cannot give an insurance carrier reason to argue that your injuries might be related to a separate incident. If you saw a doctor promptly after being bitten by a dog, you will have documentation proving that your injuries were the result of a dog bite.

WHAT TO DO AFTER A DOG BITE OR ATTACK?

    1. See a medical doctor or go to the emergency room.
    2. Obtain the dog owner’s contact information and residence address.
    3. Obtain the name of the dog’s veterinarian.
    4. Obtain proof of insurance and current rabies vaccination.
    5. Obtain contact information of any witnesses.
    6. Obtain photos of the dog, your insurance, and the dog owner.

CONTACT A BEVERLY HILLS DOG BITE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Mr. Kornberg holds the highest “AAV” rating given for an attorney’s trial skills and ethics by the globally recognized organization of Martindale and Hubbell for the past 30 years. He is a member of ABOTA, the American Board of Trial Advocates, and has had extensive jury trial experience. Mr. Kornberg was appointed by the President of the California State Bar Association to serve on the Commission to Revise the Rules of Professional Conduct for all California Attorneys. The Commission re-drafted and edited over 70 Ethical Rules of Conduct for California Attorney that were adopted by the California Supreme Court In 2018. He has served as a volunteer arbitrator for the Los Angeles Superior Court and handled over 200 Arbitrations as a court-appointed arbitrator.

The above explanation regarding how an insurance carrier might attempt to avoid paying you when you file a claim highlights an important point: insurance companies are profit-driven businesses. If you file a claim to recover compensation after being bitten by a dog, it is likely an insurer will attempt to convince you to settle for an unreasonably low payout.

Your odds of recovering the full amount of compensation for which you may be eligible will be much greater if you have legal representation from a qualified Beverly Hills dog bite accident attorney.
