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.

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.

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.

What Caused Your Car Accident?

A car crash can happen in many ways, but many accidents are caused by drivers who:

  • Drive too fast
  • Fail to yield, stop, or otherwise obey traffic signals
  • Text while driving, or partake in other distracted driving habits
  • Are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Drive aggressively (road rage)
  • Operate a vehicle with a recalled or faulty part

If you have been in an auto accident, it is critical to pinpoint the cause of the accident so an effective strategy for obtaining maximum recovery can be developed.

Car Accidents Carry Serious Consequences

Permanent Disabilities

Some car accidents result in loss of limbs, permanent paralysis, and other permanent impairments that can affect you for the rest of your life.

Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are often permanent and can alter your behavior, mood, and memory, preventing you from living the life you did before your auto accident.

Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, many car accidents end in death. In 2019 alone, Nevada had 284 traffic fatalities. Motorcycle accident victims were 27 times more likely to perish in a crash. 

"He Is Honest and Dedicated"

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, motorcycle, or truck 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 singlehandedly 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.
