With each case he handles, Mr. Kendall’s aim is to maximize the compensation that you and your family receive from the at-fault party. Every accident has a unique set of facts that affects a victim’s right to compensation. If you or a family member has been injured in any of the following kinds of accidents – or any other type of accident that was caused by a negligent party – you should contact a Staunton VA personal injury attorney.
Car accidents. Unfortunately, we all know how dangerous a car can be when an irresponsible driver gets behind the wheel. David Kendall can help you prove that the driver who caused your injury was reckless and therefore needs to pay for your medical bills, the damage to your car, the income you missed, and your pain and suffering.
Pedestrian accidents. When a driver hits a pedestrian, injuries can be quite serious because walkers are unprotected from the full force of the car or truck that hit them. Extensive injuries result in expensive treatment, so don’t wait to contact a qualified attorney.
Motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists are vulnerable to serious injuries in collisions. Since their vehicles are so much smaller than other vehicles on the road, motorcyclists may be at risk for catastrophic injuries such as paralysis and brain injuries. Many accidents are caused by other drivers who fail to stay alert for motorcycles or violate riders’ right of way. If this has happened to you, you and your family may have a right to seek fair compensation.
Nursing home abuse. You entrust a long-term care facility or nursing home with your family member’s care. It can be horrifying to learn that your loved one has been neglected or abused by those entrusted with your loved one’s care. If that has happened to you, David Kendall will zealously advocate on your behalf to make sure that the person or business responsible pays for the pain they caused.
Slip and fall. Many people are surprised by how dangerous falls are. They are a leading cause of serious injury and death for adults in the United States. For that reason, Virginia state law requires individuals and businesses to keep their premises reasonably safe. If a business leaves trip hazards or conditions that cause slips, like spills or leaks, they may be held liable for your injuries.
Truck accidents. Tractor-trailers and even smaller trucks like delivery vehicles can cause serious damage to other vehicles in crashes. Since trucks have large blind spots and take longer distances to stop, truck drivers have to be vigilant to avoid collisions. When a truck driver speeds or drives carelessly and causes a crash, the driver may be held liable for the injuries they cause.
Truck accident injury claims are often more complicated than other kinds of crashes because multiple parties may potentially be held responsible, including the driver’s employer, the truck’s owner, the trailer’s owner, and the driver. Attorney David Kendall knows how to navigate these complicated cases and how to fight deep-pocketed insurance companies.
Wrongful death. It is every family’s worst nightmare to lose a loved one. When a death is caused by a preventable accident due to recklessness or negligence, such as a car crash, you may seek compensation. David Kendall will treat you with the compassion you deserve. He can review the details of your loved one’s death and help you understand whether a wrongful death lawsuit may be in order.
