Kendall Law Firm represented a young boy from Harrisonburg and his family in a case that resulted in a $2,375,000 settlement. The child suffered a closed head injury while riding on a school bus that was struck by a bob-tailing truck. We worked with a life-care planner and an economist, who provided insight on the child’s medical needs and future loss of earnings. The case settled on the second day of trial.
