Dog Bite Attorney in the Inland Empire
Dogsbite.org reports that there were 34 dog bite related fatalities that occurred in 2015, of which pit bulls contributed to 82% of those deaths. Over the years, San Bernardino County officials have been cracking down on pit bull owners due to the highly dangerous statistics regarding their temperament. However, the popularity of pit bulls is overwhelming, and many people are drawn to them even though they're often the #1 "blacklisted" breed by insurance companies in addition to:
Recently in Riverside, California a pit bull was killed by a neighbor after it had attacked and killed his Poodle. The defendant and 2 other neighbors were over-powered by the pit bull and could not get it to release the smaller dog from it's jaws once it had locked down - a characteristic personality trait of the breed.
The Paris Firm Fights & Wins Dog Attack Case
Mr. Paris recently settled a lawsuit by obtaining the entire homeowners insurance policy in the amount of $100,000 for a client who was performing her job when she was attacked by a dog. The dog bit her arm so hard that it crushed clear through to the bone. The client's insurance company was delaying as much as possible which is a common tactic used by insurance adjusters. The Paris Firm filed a lawsuit, conducted an extensive investigation into the matter and after destroying the defendant in deposition the very next day the case settled for the entire homeowners insurance policy.

At Heiting & Irwin, we advise Californians involved in a car crash caused by another person to take photographs at the scene of the crash so long as they are able to do so without causing another person’s physical safety or their own safety to be jeopardized. Some may wonder, however, just how important these photographs actually are to the resolution of their Riverside car crash. The answer depends on the quality and quantity of the photographs themselves.
Taking Good Photographs After a California Car Crash
Photographs in a car crash case preserve a crucial moment in time for your attorney and any experts who may be needed to evaluate your crash. The old adage is true: While your words and statements can paint a picture of the accident’s aftermath, a picture truly is worth a thousand words (see, for example, this case).
However, the usefulness of the photographs you take will depend on both the quantity and quality. In general, it is always advisable to take photographs of the car crash scene. However, these photographs may not be of much help to your attorney if they are not of sufficient quality. Quality photographs that are most helpful include those that:
You should also take care to ensure these photographs are properly archived so that you always have a copy available to you in the event other copies become lost, damaged, or destroyed.
Do Not Take Photographs if Doing So Jeopardizes Your Safety
While photographs can be extremely helpful in increasing your chances of recovering compensation in your case, you must not jeopardize your own safety or cause further injury to yourself or anyone else just to take photographs. Not only will this exacerbate your losses, but it can negatively impact your ability to recover full compensation.
