Car Accident Lawyer

Car accidents can lead to serious injuries, extensive property damage, and other life-changing consequences for all parties involved. 

If you or a loved one were seriously injured in a car crash caused by a negligent or reckless driver, you may have a case.

Here's how car accident lawyer William R. Kendall in Reno, NV, can help you and your family recover from a serious car crash...

What to Do after an Auto Accident

The moments after an auto accident can be a blur, but if you know what to do immediately after a car crash, you can help your case. To protect yourself and your best interests following a car accident, you should:

Gather Evidence

Before you move the vehicles (assuming it is safe to do so), take photos of the damage to the vehicles and of the car accident scene. You will want to make note of the time of day, the location of the accident, the weather and road conditions, and the direction each vehicle was going prior to the accident.

Move Out of Traffic

Get out of traffic if you are able to do so. This will allow emergency vehicles a clear path to you and will also help prevent more damage from being done by oncoming traffic.

Document Your Injuries

Make note of your injuries, taking pictures if possible. Check on your passengers and the other driver if you are able. If there are any serious injuries, call 9-1-1 to get medical attention. 

Get the Details

Get the contact information for all witnesses, including their names and phone numbers. In the coming days, your car accident attorney will need to take a statement from them and it is helpful to have their information close at hand. Also, get the name and the insurance information for the other driver. This helps to expedite making a claim for damages. Don't expect a police report to paint a complete picture of the incident; all supplemental evidence you have will be important in your case.

Be Mindful of Your Words

It is also important that you do not admit fault. The officer that arrives on scene will make a written report and you do not want any record of having taken responsibility for the accident. Most importantly, you need to contact a qualified car accident lawyer to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Call a Car Accident Lawyer

If your car accident occurred in Reno or the surrounding communities, contact Mr. Kendall as soon as possible. If you are seriously injured or hospitalized, Mr. Kendall can come to your home or hospital to talk to you about your auto accident. To protect your best interests, ensure that you contact a car accident lawyer before you make any agreements with an insurance company.

Reno's "Spaghetti Bowl" is Dangerous For Drivers

The roads that connect I-80 and I-580 have a high rate of motor vehicle accidents, leaving many drivers and passengers with personal injuries. Known as the Spaghetti Bowl, the area averaged about three crashes a day, according to the Nevada Department of Transportation.

Crashes are so common in the Spaghetti Bowl that the Reno Gazette-Journal once conducted an investigation into the traffic conditions of the area. They found that there were 4,208 crashes reported in the area from 2011 to 2015. One in three of those crashes led to an injury or death.

If you sustain a personal injury because of a motor vehicle accident in the Spaghetti Bowl, our car accident lawyer is ready to help you.

Bill Kendall is an amazing lawyer. Through my whole case he gave me the peace of mind knowing that someone was always there looking out for my best interests. Whenever I called, it was Bill that answered the phone, not an exchange, a clerk, or a receptionist. Not having to talk to clerks or receptionists, leave messages, then wait, is one of the things that made working with Bill so awesome.  If I could leave 6 stars I would.

Common Types of Car Accidents

Car stuck on side of road in ditch

Single-Vehicle Accidents

In a single-car crash, typically the driver is considered at fault. It is possible that negligence on behalf of the municipality in which the car accident occurred was a contributing factor due to inadequate signage or poor road conditions. Mechanical failure may also be found to be the cause of the accident. In such cases, a thorough investigation by a car accident lawyer can help prove that the driver was not at fault for the incident.

Badly damaged hood of car

Multiple Vehicle Accidents

When two or more vehicles are involved in a car crash determining fault can become complicated. Common causes include illegal left turns, drivers ignoring stop signs or red lights, and failure to brake in time to avoid an accident. Multiple vehicle accidents can include side-impact collisions, t-bone accidents, and rear-end crashes, resulting in significant injuries for drivers and any passengers involved in the collision. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a multiple vehicle accident in Reno, Bill Kendall can help secure the compensation you deserve.


Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Due to the size of commercial vehicles such as tractor-trailers, delivery vehicles, and buses, collisions with passenger cars can lead to significant injuries. Add to this the layers of complexity that arise when dealing with the relationship between a driver of a commercial vehicle and whether or not they are an independent contractor or an employee of a larger company, and the need to retain a car accident lawyer quickly becomes clear. Bill Kendall can help if you or a loved one has been injured in a commercial vehicle accident in Reno.

"He Is Honest and Dedicated"

"Bill is a straight shooter, and he tells it how it is. He helped me with a car accident case and fought for me. He is honest and dedicated. I would recommend Bill Kendall and use him in the future if needed." Tere Carroll

Step-By-Step: The Car Accident Claim Process

No matter how long it takes to reach a favorable resolution, Mr. Kendall is always available.
No matter how long it takes to reach a favorable resolution, Mr. Kendall is always available.

Meet with an Attorney

During your complimentary consultation at our Reno office, Mr. Kendall will perform a thorough review of your car accident case. He will identify its strengths and weaknesses, explaining how they can affect the value of your case. Mr. Kendall will provide honest information about your case to help you make a confident decision about which steps you want to take.

Make an Insurance Claim

Most car, truck, or motorcycle accidents begin with a claim being made to the other driver's insurance company. Mr. Kendall will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf and attempt to negotiate a fair, full settlement. Because insurance companies are more interested in protecting themselves than protecting you, a car accident attorney is essential during these negotiations. 

File a Lawsuit

If Mr. Kendall is unable to reach a favorable resolution with the other driver's insurance company, he will file a lawsuit on your behalf. In the days leading up to the trial, our car accident attorney will build up your case by further investigating the facts and interviewing witnesses. In some auto accident cases, a resolution is reached before the case goes to trial.

Go to Trial

If our Reno car accident attorney is unable to reach a favorable settlement in the pre-trial period, your case will go to court. It is important to note that Nevada is a comparative negligence state. If the jury finds that you were partly responsible for the accident, they may reduce your award accordingly.

Ongoing Support Every Step of the Way

While insurance claims may be resolved quickly, lawsuits can span several months or even years. Whether you choose to settle with the insurance company or take your case to court, you will have direct access to Mr. Kendall at all times.

While bigger law firms use paralegals and assistants to handle their cases, Mr. Kendall is a solo attorney who single-handedly works on every car accident claim. 

No matter how long it takes to reach a favorable resolution, Mr. Kendall will always be available in person, over the phone, or by e-mail.
