Injury victims in California have a limited amount of time to file a claim against the person that caused them harm. The California personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date the incident occurs and failing to file a claim within this time frame could result in the victim being unable to recover the compensation they deserve. If your claim is against a government entity you must file your claim in writing within six months. Let the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg help ensure that your Los Angeles personal injury claim is filed on time. The malpractice statute of limitations is one year. There are exceptions to these deadlines so having an experienced attorney is critical.

When you or a loved one sustain an injury caused by somebody else, you deserve to be fully
and fairly compensated for what happened. The total amount of compensation for Los Angeles personal
injury victims will vary depending on the circumstances related to each particular case, but a
skilled Los Angeles personal injury lawyer will be able to help maximize total
Personal injury victims are entitled to obtain the following:
A personal injury attorney cannot promise that you will recover a specific sum when accepting your case. This would be unethical. There are a number of factors that influence the amount of compensation a victim may recover.
At the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg, our skilled team can promise to help optimize your chances of recovering significantly more compensation than you would likely be able to recover if you attempted to handle your case without the assistance of an expert.
Every personal injury case is somewhat unique. We will account for this when representing you. We work closely with every client to fully understand how each injury has impacted your life.
In most instances, your means of pursuing the compensation for which you may be eligible after being injured as a result of someone else’s carelessness would involve filing a claim to collect from the insurance of said negligent party. In circumstances when this is not an option (such as when the negligent party is not insured) you could instead file a lawsuit in an effort to recover damages in court. Additionally, if you are injured in an on-the-job accident, you can file a claim to recover workers’ compensation benefits.
Typically, though, recovering compensation in these circumstances will require hardball negotiating with an insurance company. This can be immensely difficult if you lack proper experience. Insurance companies and their attorneys are businesses. An insurer is not incentivized to pay victims what they may be requesting when they file claims
An insurance adjuster will insead attempt to find reasons to justify paying you less than what you may deserve. If they can find a reason to do so, an insurance adjuster may even deny your claim entirely.
This doesn’t mean your claim should have been denied. A skilled Los Angeles personal injury trial attorney can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, providing evidence to show that you may be eligible for substantially more compensation than the insurer is willing to initially offer.
This also gives you more time to focus on your own needs and recovery. While we handle the specifics of your case, you can prioritize getting better.
At the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg, we take Los Angeles personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis.

Your first consultation with a member of our team is an opportunity for you to explain the nature of your accident and for both you and our team to determine if we believe we should work together. You are not under any obligation to hire us if you decide you would prefer not to.
The exact nature of your consultation will depend on the nature of your case. That said, you can generally prepare by gathering evidence supporting your “side of the story” if you have access to any. At the very least, you should have medical bills for any treatment you received after your accident.
You should also draft a narrative of your accident before the consultation. This will minimize the chances of you forgetting to mention any important details.
Many accident victims are completely unaware of their rights. What you don’t know about personal injury law can come back to haunt you later. Getting the right legal advice is crucial to recovering the compensation you deserve.
