Long Beach Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

Every day, more than 100 people die in motor vehicle accidents in Long Beach and all across the U.S.

The consequences of a car accident can be devastating – but unfortunately, obtaining compensation for your damages, losses, and injuries is no easy task if you’re not legally represented.

Fact: More than 5.4 million motor vehicle accidents occur in the U.S. every year.

Even if you’ve been in motor vehicle accidents before, you’re never prepared for another one, as every accident differs in its severity and complexity.

Many of the injuries sustained in a vehicle accident, whether it be a car, truck or motorcycle can lead to long-term medical treatment and rehabilitation. Even with treatment though, some victims never fully recover. Those individuals who experience lifelong injuries may never have the ability to return to work or lead an independent, quality life. In some cases, full-time care is mandatory for the victim.

That’s why it’s vital to have a motor vehicle collision lawyer by your side. Let our experienced lawyer Howard Craig Kornberg formulate the best legal strategy in your case, while you focus on your medical recovery.

It is our mission to ensure you get the compensation you deserve for all injuries you may suffer after a motor vehicle accident. We take into account all injuries, particularly:

  • Traumatic brain injuries: Brain injuries are extremely common in vehicle accidents. They almost always occur after a blunt force impacts the head. Victims are then left with the injury aftermath of either, skull fractures, concussions, hemorrhages, and more. Head injuries are also linked to memory loss and experiencing headaches or loss of consciousness.
  • Broken bones and fractures: Otherwise known as the second leading injury suffered in vehicle accidents. When you are involved in an accident, your body can be thrown around inside the car. It can be too much for your bones to handle at which point breaks and fractures can occur. Whenever a bone breaks in the body we all know recovery will take a while especially if surgery is needed to correct the issue.
  • Back and spinal injuries: These types of injuries are the result of a more serious vehicle accident. You may experience whiplash, sever the spinal cord, crush the vertebrae, and rupture discs in the back. In extreme and unfortunate instances, the victim can be left paralyzed and may be forced to undergo surgery. There is a low chance that victims fully recover from back injuries.
  • Burns and gashes: During an accident shards of glass and metal tend to break and spray in all directions. If moving at high speeds, these flying debris can cut through human skin rather easily. You are inclined to see burns happen in an accident that usually results from fires, seatbelts, and airbags. When serious, burns and cuts require extensive medical treatment and will leave permanent scars.
  • Organ damage and internal bleeding: Occur when punctured by broken bones or ruptured by blunt force. It is vital to know that these types of injuries require immediate medical attention. Internal bleeding and punctured organs can lead to death if not attended to properly.

Residents of California all know that traffic can be very dangerous due to the highways and major roads across the state’s cities. There are so many vehicles on the road that it only seems logical to say that more cars on the road lead to more accidents on a daily basis.
