Car Accidents and Wrongful Death: Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Wrongful Death

Car accidents can result in devastating consequences, especially when they lead to wrongful death. In such tragic situations, it’s imperative to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions. The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg understand the pain and suffering families endure after losing a loved one in a car accident. As experienced Los Angeles wrongful death attorneys, we are committed to providing compassionate legal representation to help families seek justice and compensation.

Recognizing the Signs of Negligent Driving

Recognizing the signs of negligent driving is crucial in preventing accidents and holding responsible parties accountable. Common signs of careless driving include:

Speeding.

Reckless driving.

Distracted driving (such as texting or using a cell phone).

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Failure to obey traffic laws.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident caused by negligent driving, it’s essential to seek legal assistance promptly.

Common Causes of Car Accidents Leading to Wrongful Death

Car accidents leading to wrongful death can occur due to various reasons, including:

Distracted Driving: With the prevalence of smartphones and other electronic devices, distracted driving has become a leading cause of car accidents. Texting, talking on the phone, or adjusting the radio can distract a driver from the road, leading to fatal consequences.

Speeding: Exceeding the speed limit reduces the driver’s ability to react to hazards and increases the severity of accidents. High-speed collisions often result in catastrophic injuries or fatalities.

Drunk Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs judgment, coordination, and reaction time, significantly increasing the risk of accidents. Tragically, many car accidents resulting in wrongful death are entirely preventable if drivers choose not to drink and drive.

Reckless Driving: Behaviors such as tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, and disregarding traffic signals constitute careless driving and can lead to deadly accidents.

Building a Strong Wrongful Death Case After a Car Crash

Building a solid wrongful death case requires thorough investigation and legal expertise. Our team at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg conducts a comprehensive review of the accident scene, gathers evidence, interviews witnesses, and works with accident reconstruction experts to determine liability. We understand the complexities of wrongful death claims and strive to build a compelling case to hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.

Seeking Compensation for Your Loss: Damages Awarded in Wrongful Death Cases

In wrongful death cases resulting from car accidents, families may be entitled to various types of compensation, including:

Medical Expenses: Compensation for expenses incurred before the victim’s death, including hospital bills, surgery, and medication expenses.

Funeral and Burial Costs: Reimbursement for funeral and burial expenses, helping families cover the financial burden of laying their loved one to rest.

Loss of Income: Compensation for the deceased’s lost income and potential earnings, ensuring financial stability for surviving family members.

Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical pain, emotional suffering, and mental anguish endured by the victim before their death.

Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the loss of companionship, guidance, and support suffered by the surviving spouse, children, or dependents.

If you’ve lost a loved one in a car accident due to the negligence of another driver, you don’t have to face this challenging time alone. The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg are here to provide you with the compassionate support and aggressive legal representation you need.
