Did you know that if you are hurt in Nevada but live in California, you’ll need to hire a lawyer licensed to practice in Nevada? Your injury claim will be settled or litigated in Nevada, even if you reside elsewhere. A California attorney who parachutes in to handle a case in Nevada will be at a disadvantage when going up against a Las Vegas business or Las Vegas-based insurance company.
Conversely, did you know if you live in Nevada but you were injured in California, you’ll need a lawyer who is licensed in California? Don’t put yourself at a disadvantage by hiring an attorney unfamiliar with the local civil court system.

You should continue with follow-up medical treatment as directed when you return home. You should consult with a knowledgeable Nevada personal injury attorney to understand your legal options and whether you have the right to pursue compensation from another motorist.
