Any incident which harms an individual’s physical or psychological status, created by the negligence of another individual or group of individuals, is considered a personal injury by California and federal law. From preventable actions at work, to negligent use of an automobile, individuals who experience a drastic change in their lifestyle by no fault of their own may have a personal injury claim against an at-fault party.
The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg provide competence, aggressive yet compassionate personal injury litigation for injured persons. As a highly respected Long Beach personal injury attorney firm, we bring 35 years of ethical representation to every case, understanding that no two cases are similar or more tragic than others.
Martindale-Hubbell gives Mr. Kornberg an AV Preeminent rating, which is the highest possible. As an ABOTA member attorney, persons seriously injured can take solace in knowing a highly regarded advocate of injury law is teamed up with them to get the compensation they deserve.
Personal injuries occur unannounced, oftentimes without provocation. Depending on where your injury occurred, or during what activity you endured physical or psychological pains and suffering. As our Long Beach personal injury attorney treats all injuries as seriously as you do, we do not waste time in gathering facts and building your case.
In the case of an automobile accident, injuries may be severe enough where victims fade in and out of consciousness, which may prohibit their ability to remember specific events of their injury. Therefore, we rely heavily on police reports, any footage we can recover from dash cams or street cameras, and witness testimony. Together with your account of events, we can build a solid case.
In the event your personal injury happened at work, we rely on similar information but often police reports aren’t filed; instead, we concentrate on other coworkers’ account of events, photos or physical evidence at the scene to build your case. In work-related personal injuries, we can recover lost wages and, if your injury is expected to put you out of work for extended periods, our attorneys will fight for larger settlements.
Most importantly, people involved in personal injuries should expect a long recovery. During the course of your recovery, The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg will work to settle your case before trial, although we’re certainly not opposed to requesting jury award for damages sustained to property, body and loss of consortium should facts substantiate the need for such compensation.
Most cases are taken by our Long Beach personal injury attorney on contingency basis, meaning the outcome will dictate how much our office earns. We realize that many people personally injured may not have the means to pay for litigation, which is why we structure our fees to ‘shift’ in responsibility to the offending party.
