Losing a loved one can tear a family apart in so many ways with grief, sorrow, and added financial strains. Losing a child is the most devastating situation a parent will ever have to face. When it is caused by the negligence of another during an accident the family is left with so many unanswered questions about the details of the accident and why this happened to begin with. If the death could have been avoided or was caused directly by someone’s negligence, there can be a wrongful death case. If the circumstances surrounding a death seem suspicious or avoidable contact a Riverside wrongful death attorney to review your case.
At the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg in Riverside, we understand that no amount of money can ever replace the loss of a loved one. We focus on one goal after a fatal accident — to obtain justice for the families who have lost so much.
Wrongful death claims in Riverside are complex because proving fault and liability requires dedicated attention to detail that not every personal injury attorney is prepared to handle. Proving the extent of a family’s loss due to a fatal injury requires more than a detached analysis of legal issues — it requires hard work and compassion for the victims. The Riverside wrongful death attorneys at the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg are devoted to protecting the rights of clients seeking justice and trying to obtain compensation.
A surviving party or representative of the survivors can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party. Survivors are considered spouses, life partners, and immediate family members as well as financial dependents and parents of a deceased fetus. Depending on the circumstances, a lawsuit can be filed against an individual, company, or government agency. A Riverside wrongful death attorney will seek compensation for economic damages, punitive damages, and non-economic damages. Most states hold a one to a three-year statute of limitations on wrongful death lawsuits unless there is the discovery of new information during that time.

- The death was caused by the alleged party
- The death occurred as a direct result of the alleged party’s negligence
- The death brought monetary damages
- The death affected the surviving family members
The biggest element is proving negligence during a case. The victim cannot speak for themselves but Howard C. Kornberg is here to be the voice of the voiceless. Contact the offices of Howard C. Kornberg for a consultation if you feel you have a wrongful death case.
