Our legal team in Harrisonburg, VA concentrate on representing people who are struggling to recover from serious injuries caused by others’ careless actions, disregard for safety or misconduct. By handling cases within a specific practice area, we have developed a detailed understanding of this area of civil law. Few attorneys in the Shenandoah Valley have handled more personal injury cases than David Kendall.
Today, David works with Elizabeth Kuhn, our senior personal injury paralegal, to assist injured individuals and families in Harrisonburg, VA. The legal team at the Kendall Law Firm believes that each of our clients deserves individual attention and our best effort to seek maximum recovery.
We handle a range of personal injury cases including:
Driving in Harrisonburg can be dangerous, even if you follow all traffic laws. Many car accidents are caused by drivers who engage in drunk driving, distracted driving, fatigued driving, speeding, tailgating and other forms of careless driving. If you have been injured in a wreck caused by another driver, our injury attorney in Harrisonburg can investigate the accident and file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company or, if needed, file a claim with your own uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist coverage.
Accidents involving large commercial trucks require the assistance of an experienced Harrisonburg truck accident lawyer. Commercial truck accidents are more complex to resolve than crashes involving passenger automobiles. An investigation must be conducted, and logbooks, maintenance records, driver records and shipping manifests must be preserved as soon as possible. A personal injury claim involving a truck accident may involve the pursuit of claims against multiple parties, including parties located out of state. At Kendall Law Firm, our lawyer has experience with the complicated federal and state regulations that govern truck safety. We know how to hold negligent commercial truck drivers and trucking companies responsible for the harm they cause.
Pedestrians and bicyclists are common around Harrisonburg because of the presence of universities such as James Madison University and Eastern Mennonite University. Unfortunately, drivers do not always look out for pedestrians and cyclists, who are extremely vulnerable if struck by a car or truck. Insurance companies often try to claim that the injured pedestrian or bicyclist was at fault. At Kendall Law Firm, we will aggressively challenge such attempts to shift the blame and fight for justice for our clients.
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
When we move our loved ones into a nursing home, we have a right to expect that they will be treated with care and respect. If you suspect that your family member has been injured by physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse in a Harrisonburg nursing home, the Kendall Law Firm is ready to help you. Our Winchester personal injury lawyer can seek to hold those who harmed your loved one fully accountable. We also can serve as a liaison between you and the state or federal agency that may be investigating the situation. We can protect your family’s rights while a state or federal agency investigates an incident.
If another person’s negligence has caused the death of a loved one, you have the right to seek damages through a wrongful death claim. While a wrongful death claim is similar in many ways to a personal injury lawsuit, it can involve unique issues that require an experienced lawyer. For example, the types of damages sought in a wrongful death lawsuit differ from those pursued in a personal injury lawsuit. Common grounds for wrongful death lawsuits include fatal car accidents, pedestrian accidents, trucking accidents, medical malpractice and dangerous products.
At the Kendall Law Firm, we believe that individuals and businesses that act negligently and cause preventable accidents should pay for the harm they cause. Virginia law allows victims of personal injury accidents to seek full compensation for their losses.
Our attorney in Harrisonburg, VA will stand up for your rights and seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and pain and suffering.
