With the belief that "to whom much is given, much is required," Kendall Dunson regularly speaks at continuing legal education seminars on the topics of product liability, industrial accidents and defective machinery.

Before coming to work at Beasley Allen, Kendall Dunson worked in the litigation section of a prominent defense firm for two and a half years. At Beasley Allen, he practices in the areas of Product Liability, General Personal Injury, and Workers' Compensation cases involving defective industrial machinery. Kendall has worked on numerous cases aimed at compensating clients for human losses and influencing corporations to manufacture safer products. Kendall was a member of the trial team that prosecuted a wrongful death case against a corporate defendant resulting in a $2.5 million verdict, the largest jury verdict in Selma, Alabama. The suit also influenced the corporate defendant to outfit its entire fleet of trucks with audible backup alarms. More recently, Kendall handled the bus accident case in Huntsville, Alabama, that resulted in the death of four students and numerous injuries. The suit resulted in the cancellation of the contract between the County and the defendant who was responsible for safely transporting students to school.
