Perhaps one of the worst types of personal injury accidents innocent people can endure comes when riding a motorcycle. Even those with a great amount of riding experience can endure life-threatening injuries when one negligent driver sideswipes or slams into a motorcyclist. As an experienced Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney, Howard Craig Kornberg has dealt with some horrific bike accidents.
Some drivers just don’t belong on the road. Statistics show the greater amount of motorcycle accidents happen when intoxicated drivers, or those that simply drive too aggressively, partake in California’s many highways and interstates. Many times these reckless drivers are caught until motorcyclists have either lost their lives, or are injured too badly to work again.
Once I’m retained by motorcycle accident victims or their families, there’s no stone left unturned or evidence left behind in my quest to hold negligent drivers accountable for causing motorcyclists this pain. But as with every personal injury investigation, there is a process which must be flawlessly executed before bringing claims to insurance companies to request compensation.
Prior to contacting an attorney, victims more than likely get medical attention, or undergo an autopsy if they’ve passed away. After this process, victims or spouses will their chosen Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney to discuss details and begin the process of getting claim settled. These times are difficult for everyone, so I offer a no-pressure atmosphere during free consultations.
Once I get the go-ahead to begin working on your case, I’ll embark on a fact-finding journey that will take me to law enforcement and quite possibly to the scene of the accident. Together with what victims and witnesses disclose happened during the accident, my case against the at-fault driver and insurer will grow progressively stronger. After a rock-solid case has been built, I’ll then approach the defendant’s counsel and the insurer to engage in pretrial settlement negotiations.
At this point, we’re all holding our breaths praying the insurance company cooperates and meets our demands. Should they opt against cooperation, my office will file the case in court where the insurance company can explain to a jury why they’re refusing compensation for an unnecessary motorcycle accident their policyholder caused. Once I’ve got the jury’s attention, you’d be surprised how quickly I’ll get the infamous ‘meeting on the courthouse steps’.
Finding that perfect Long Beach motorcycle accident attorney can be somewhat challenging, although it doesn’t have to be. For many years, Howard has served the community with fair fees and ferocious litigation of negligent drivers who injure motorcyclists.
Motorcycle injuries are some of the most terrifying tragedies across all personal injury accidents. Regardless of how much compensation we’re able to get for victims, nothing will be the same for the biker who was innocently rumbling down the interstate because, due to their injuries, they will never ride again. All because of negligence.
