Las Vegas personal injury attorney

After falling victim to a car accident, you may find yourself wondering difficult questions, like: “do I have a personal injury case?,” “What do I do now?” It is likely that you have experienced increased debt, and medical expenses that you simply cannot afford as a result. You undoubtedly need legal advice that you can count on, the injury attorneys at Craig P. Kenny & Associates are available to help you from start to finish following an accident. We have the resources and expertise to answer all of your motor vehicle accident questions, and we will handle your car accident case as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The best Las Vegas car accident lawyers

One of the most critical things you must remember following an automobile accident in Las Vegas is to speak with a lawyer as quickly as possible. As you know, the other driver’s insurance company will use every resource they have to try to deny your insurance claim. Therefore, in order to adequately protect your rights, you will need to seek legal advice BEFORE speaking with the insurance company and/or provide a statement of the accident.

Insurance companies are very aggressive when it comes to contacting victims after an accident. This is typically because they believe that this allows them to settle an accident claim quickly, regardless of whether it is beneficial to the victim. They will try to push you to settle as quickly as possible, usually before you have had time to evaluate the total amount of financial losses derived from the accident. This is why it is imperative that you speak with an accident attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights. If you or a loved one has been injured  in a car accident, please contact the law office of Craig P. Kenny & Associates for a free consultation immediately to make sure you are protected.

You need an experienced Las Vegas auto accident lawyer that you can trust

You need a Las Vegas car accident attorney who will fight against the stubborn insurance companies for you. You need a car accident attorney who will hold your hand and guide you through the process as gently as possible; who will stand up against and fight for you on your behalf; who is more concerned with seeing you recover, both emotionally and financially, than they are closing the case quickly to collect a settlement. That is not how we operate at Craig P. Kenny & Associates. Our attorneys will use our expertise and utilize every resource we have to help maximize the compensation you receive for your injuries.

To successfully recover compensation for your injuries, we must prove negligence. This means that we must prove that the other driver was responsible in an automobile accident, usually by means of distracted driving.

This takes an investment of time, experience, and knowledge – advantages that Craig P. Kenny & Associates can offer. We do this by hiring experts, collecting all evidence applicable to your case, investigating the scene of the accident, police report and so on.

Our dedicated car accident attorneys investigate every possible contributing cause of your car accident. We want to ensure that you will receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.

Causes of Las Vegas Car Accidents

While every auto accident is unique in what caused the event, there are several common causes.

  • Distracted Driving. Distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of car accidents. Typically, the driver has become distracted by their smart phones; however, distractions can also occur when the driver is focused on the radio, navigation, eating/drinking, searching for something in their vehicle, is engaged in deep conversation, or is observing something on the side of the road, such as an auto accident or billboard.
  • Hazardous Road Conditions. In Las Vegas, construction has become but a staple in almost every car ride. With construction comes chaos as lanes merge and traffic increases. Additionally, road conditions can change quickly with wind and rain which can cause roadway hazards and dangerous driving conditions.
  • Driving Under The Influence/Driving While Intoxicated. Those who are operating a vehicle under the influence are a hazard to their surrounding drivers/pedestrians. As response time slows drastically, judgment and vision is impaired, driving while under the influence is arguably the most devastating cause of car accidents in Las Vegas.
  • Reckless Driving. From speeding to weaving in and out of traffic, running red lights and not following the rules of the road, reckless driving is another leading cause of auto accidents.
  • Manufacture Defect. These type of accidents occur when the manufacturer sells a defective product, such as faulty brakes, engine failure, power-steering issues and so on.

That said, there are various reasons why an accident can occur on the Las Vegas roadways, so it is best practice to always exercise defensive driving while operating a vehicle!

What To Do If You Are In A Car Accident

As a responsible driver, you should always be prepared in the event you fall victim to an auto accident. The policing agencies in Las Vegas, NV only respond to an auto accident if injuries are reported at the scene. Therefore, if you are involved in an non-emergency accident, you should have the following items in your vehicle at all times:

  • Pen and paper
  • Disposable camera or mobile phone with camera capabilitie
  • Proof of registration and insurance
  • Roadside assistance/tow truck company information
  • Bonus: A copy of the Las Vegas accident protocol

In a non-emergency auto accident, if you are able to do so, you should safely move your vehicle out of harms way. Before moving the vehicle, however, you should use your camera to document the entire scene of the accident. Once your vehicle as been moved, you should begin to exchange information with the other driver(s). If your vehicle cannot be moved and it is posing a threat to oncoming traffic, you should notify the police department immediately. The Las Vegas police department should also be called if you find that:

  • Another driver involved in the crash is, or appears to be, intoxicated.
  • Another driver involved in the crash cannot, or will not, provide registration and/or insurance information.
  • Another driver involved in the crash is uncooperative.

Collecting information from other drivers in a car accident:

  • Name(s) address(es) and phone number(s)
  • Name and contact information of all passengers and witnesses
  • Driver’s license information
  • Proof of insurance
  • Vehicle information, including year, make model, license plate number and VIN number.

Once you have documented the scene and obtained all information, you should fill out an SR-1 form to submit to your insurance company.

What To Do If You Are Injured In A Car Accident? (Hint: Hire A Car Accident Attorney)

If you have been injured in a car accident in Las Vegas, you need not worry about collecting all of the above information, as the police will report to the scene and collect it on your behalf. If you are injured, you must:

  • Call 911, report the accident and request immediate medical assistance.Las Vegas Car Accident Attorney
  • Seek medical attention immediately. Do not delay, even if the injuries seem minor they could develop into serious injuries once the initial shock wears off.
  • Provide information required by police; however, do NOT admit to being at fault for the crash. Even if you are partially to blame, let the accident re-constructionists develop an opinion of fault.
  • Contact a personal injury attorney IMMEDIATELY, before speaking with the insurance company.

It is imperative that you consult with a car accident lawyer before speaking with the insurance companies. It is not at all uncommon for the insurance company to contact you within 24-hours following the accident to collect a statement. To protect your rights and ensure you are properly compensated for your injuries, contact Craig P. Kenny & Associates for a free consultation before providing any type of statement to the insurance company!

Establishing Fault After a Car Accident

Nevada is an at-fault state when it comes to car accidents. What that means is that the governing rules of negligence apply and the person determined at fault for the crash holds responsibility, and their insurance company should pay for any losses and other damages.

When trying to prove fault in a car accident, investigators will take a close look of each party to determine negligence. To prove fault, we must examine all evidence presented to prove that the other party was not exercising due-care as they should have and that their negligence was a direct cause of the accident.

I am VERY impressed with Craig P. Kenny & Associates Law Firm, especially my attorney Brittany Young. I was in a car accident where the other driver failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with me. Because of this, I was having extreme back and neck pain right after the accident took place. I decided I needed to contact an attorney. Brittany Young with Craig P. Kenny Law firm was recommended to me. Brittany was amazing, she went above and beyond to help me in every way possible. Not only was she professional, she was also caring, allowing me to feel very comfortable working with her. I felt like I could call, text, or email her with questions or concerns anytime. If I did email, or text her she would always reply within the hour, if not minutes of receiving my message. I trusted Brittany with every aspect of my case, to the point that I felt like I could just sit back and relax while she took care of it. Now, I feel much better physically, and I also feel like I made the best decision hiring Brittany Young. I highly recommend this firm, and attorney to anyone, and everyone.read more

This is the best place to go to have your traffic tickets taken care of. I went in with my traffic ticket and was out in 15 minutes. There are no points, no traffic school, no court, and they give you a one month extension to pay your fine. I've used them in the past and they have always been there for me. I drive for a living and have a long commute to work so the chances of me having a traffic violation are a little higher than some people. I'm so glad I was introduced to Craig P Kenny and Associates.read more

I got pulled over in a speed trap a few months back. The police officer was super nice, but I didn't want any points on my license(making my insurance go up), or to have to go to traffic school or pay the fine. I was referred to Craig P Kenny & Associates by a friend and it was a super easy process from the get go. I heard from them today and Craig was able to get my whole case dismissed with no points on my record and no traffic school or fine! Highly recommend using them, they were awesome and super easy to work with!read more
