Biography

I am an attorney who represents families of fatal accident victims with wrongful death claims. With an increase in motor vehicle traffic in our highways I also assist victims involved in tragic vehicle collisions caused by negligent drivers. My law firm has witnessed the severe damages that can occur when a vehicle collision involves a semi-truck, any big rig truck, whether they be head-on collisions or rear-end collisions involving any commercial truck drivers. There are many reasons for accidents involving truck drivers and their commercially owned trucks, a few can be speeding, driver fatigue, drunk driving, improperly loaded trucks, equipment failure and as seen recently in many places around our nation: dangerous roads.
Although public transportation provides a great variety of benefits to many communities, if you or one of your loved ones has been injured in a collision involving for example a city bus, it may be overwhelming to know exactly where to request help or assistance. My law firm will pursue any liable parties and hold them accountable.
James B. Kennedy, Jr. is an experienced attorney in representing individuals that have suffered devastating injuries because of tire defects. Those defects can be tire blowouts and explosions, tread separation, improper installation, used or old tires, and inadequate traction, among others. Whether your personal vehicle had the defect or you were in a crash that was caused by others tire defects he can protect your rights and pursue your best interests.
Drunk driver's face criminal charges throughout the United States, and are held accountable for their inability to operate vehicles safely. Drunk driver's pose an enormous danger to our communities. When a driver is under the influence of drugs, prescription medications, or any other substance they impair their vision, coordination, reaction time and above all they lack judgment. They are a deadly threat found more common on our roadways, I can help you.
