Personal Injury FAQs

Do I Need an Attorney?
Yes. The party responsible for your injury will assemble a team of insurance adjusters, investigators and attorneys to work against you and your case. The goal of established insurance companies is to mischaracterize the facts of the accident, minimize the severity of your injury, attack your credibility, and pay as little as possible to settle the claim. You need the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney to help you receive full and fair compensation.

How Quickly Should I Hire an Attorney?
Immediately — as soon as you’ve received medical attention. Timing is crucial. Witnesses need to be interviewed, measurements obtained and photographs taken. An experienced personal injury attorney will take care of those matters to help preserve the integrity of your case. In addition, Nevada has statutes of limitation that limit the time by which you must make a claim, or else it will be barred forever.

What If I’m at Fault?
Even if you feel you have been the cause of an accident or personal injury to another party, seek the help of an experienced personal injury attorney immediately to evaluate your case. Schedule a no-cost, confidential consultation to help you determine the next steps.

Am I Entitled to Damages?
The first step is to meet with an experienced personal injury attorney to determine if your case has legal merit. Your total recovery in a personal injury claim is based on a number of factors: comparative liability, types of damages, the extent of injury, etc. It is the responsibility of your attorney to review each factor and seek appropriate compensation.

What Cases Are Personal Injury Cases?
Animal Attacks, including dog bites, Car/Truck/Boating/Motorcycle Accidents, Catastrophic Injuries, Injuries caused by Defective Products, Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries, Slip & Fall, Wrongful Death — any situation that involves injury or death due to the carelessness or negligence of persons or organizations.

What Will It Cost Me If I Hire Yan Kenyon?
You do not pay any fees during the course of your claim. The amount of the final bill is based on the amount of the settlement you receive. If Yan Kenyon is unable to recover any money in the settlement of your case, you pay no attorney fees whatsoever.

How Long Do I Have to Make a Claim?
It’s best to begin the legal process without delay, but depending on the type of case, in Nevada you may have up to two to four years. Nonetheless, schedule a no-cost consultation with a reputable personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

How Long Will It Take to Settle My Case?
Resolution of your case depends on a number of factors, including the length of your treatment, the certainty of any necessary future treatment, the ability to collect evidence and interview witnesses, and finally your lawyer’s skill at negotiating a settlement. These factors mean a settlement can be reached within days to months. If the case proceeds to trial, however, because of the backlog of Nevada courts, the entire process can take two to five years.
