Personal Injury Cases We Handle in Winchester, Harrisonburg and Charlottesville

With our experience and resources, Kendall Law Firm has the ability to provide legal services to clients in a broad range of cases. We focus primarily on the following case types:

Car Accidents

We help clients with everything from getting their car repaired or replaced to obtaining a settlement – or, in some cases, a series of settlements – which fully covers all of their medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and more.

An important focus in car accident cases is the identification of all potential sources of compensation. These sources can include:

  • Liability insurance coverage of the at-fault driver or drivers
  • Your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) policy
  • Insurance coverage of the at-fault driver’s employer (if the driver was working at the time of the accident)
  • Compensation from the automaker or auto parts manufacturer (if an automotive defect contributed to your crash)
  • Liability insurance of a local, state or federal government agency or its contractors (if your accident was caused by a poorly designed or maintained roadway).

We will pursue all options available in your specific case and work tirelessly to pursue the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accidents

It is important to know that an accident involving a large commercial motor vehicle must be handled differently than a crash involving two passenger cars. This is because a truck accident case typically involves:

  • An immediate, aggressive investigation
  • Multiple parties who may be responsible
  • Different types of commercial vehicle insurance
  • Violations of state and federal trucking regulations.

Kendall Law Firm can take on these complex issues for you while you focus on your family and on your physical and emotional recovery.

Pedestrian Accidents

We believe in standing up for the rights of pedestrians who are injured by negligent motor vehicle drivers. Examples of this negligence in pedestrian accidents include:

  • Failing to stop at a red light or stop sign
  • Refusing to stop for a school bus
  • Checking for walkers when backing out of a driveway or parking spot
  • Refusing to yield the right of way.

In many cases, the underlying cause of the accident is the driver’s intoxication or distraction due to texting or talking on a cell phone.

Under Virginia’s contributory negligence law, an accident victim may be barred from recovering anything if even slightly at fault. As a result, insurance companies often try to argue that a pedestrian contributed to his or her injuries.

We aggressively counter insurance company efforts to place blame on pedestrians and fight hard to obtain just compensation for them.

Nursing Home Abuse

We work closely with families who are facing the devastating reality that their elderly or disabled love one has been harmed by abuse or neglect in a nursing home.

While you focus on finding a safe and healthy environment for your family member, we can concentrate on holding the nursing home owner, administrator and/or individual staff members responsible for the harm they have caused.

In addition to pursuing relief for your loved one through a civil lawsuit, we can also serve as a liaison between your family and any law enforcement agency or state agency that is investigating the abuse and neglect.

Wrongful Death Accidents

When you are ready to take legal action after the loss of a loved one due to another’s negligence, make your first call to Kendall Law Firm.

You can trust us to handle your case with the compassion and professionalism you need during this difficult time in your life.

We can determine who should be held liable for your family member’s wrongful death and pursue compensation that can help you to overcome the loss of your loved one’s services and support.

Left Quote I was hurt in a car accident and the insurance company was not treating me fairly. I went to the Kendall Law Firm for help. My attorney filed a law suit for me, and that really got the insurance company’s attention. After that, I ended up receiving the money compensation that I truly deserved for my injuries and losses.
