Riverside Personal Injury Attorney

Did you know that personal injury is one of the least difficult cases to prove and obtain compensation for? In legalese, if someone causes your injury, then they may be held legally liable.

Fact: only roughly 4% of personal injury cases actually go to trial?

Howard Craig Kornberg, a Riverside personal injury attorney who has the highest rating given to attorneys for legal trial skills and ethical standards, explains that most personal injury claims are filed when at least one party was negligent.

In order to hold someone liable for your injuries and damage based on negligence, you are required to provide evidence to prove these four elements:

  • The defendant had a duty to act reasonably and exercise reasonable care
  • The defendant breached that duty
  • That breach resulted in your personal injury
  • The injury caused you physical, psychological, emotional, and other harm (otherwise known as damages and losses)

Types of personal injury cases

With over 35 years of successful track record in helping victims, Riverside residents obtain monetary compensation for their injuries, damages, and losses, the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg knows what it takes to file and win a personal injury lawsuit in Riverside.

Our best Riverside personal injury attorney helps get compensation for victims of a wide variety of cases, including but not limited to car accidents, pedestrian and truck accidents, workplace injuries, slip and fall accidents, birth injuries, dog bites, product liability, assault, battery, and other intentional torts.

Fact: motor vehicle accidents (car accidents, truck, bicycle, and motorcycle accidents) account for more than half of all personal injury cases in Riverside.

What to do if you get injured

  1. Get medical attention immediately after the accident (or right after your injuries started manifesting themselves days, weeks or months after the accident)
  2. Make sure your physician documents your injuries properly
  3. Collect all evidence about the accident and your injuries (witness accounts, camera footage, skid marks, etc.)
  4. Never talk to your insurer before consulting a Riverside personal injury lawyer. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can assess the full value of damages and losses in your best interests to maximize your compensation; your insurance company, on the contrary, will attempt to minimize damages
  5. Get in touch with our skilled attorney Howard Craig Kornberg to gather evidence, determine negligence, file a personal injury lawsuit, learn about your best legal options, and get the compensation that you deserve

Types of damages in personal injury cases

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost capability
  • Property loss or damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium (if your spouse, children or other family members are indirectly affected by your injury)
  • Punitive damages may also apply in personal injury cases of outrageous negligence.

If you suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, intentional tort, or strict liability – in a car accident, slip and fall accident, dog bite, product liability, and other cases – you may be entitled to both compensatory and punitive damages.
