How Can an Attorney Help?
Suffering injuries or encountering other legal issues outside your home state can be a stressful and isolating experience. If you must work within one state’s court system, you need to find an attorney with a license to practice in that state. Some people may believe they can handle self-representation, but they likely cannot successfully handle all aspects of a lawsuit while recovering from an injury or dealing with the economic impact of a legal matter in progress.
An attorney can gather evidence to support a client’s case, contact expert witnesses to weigh in on the client’s behalf in a professional capacity, and handle any insurance claim issues that arise on behalf of the client. In a personal injury claim in any state, the plaintiff’s attorney can help secure compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and other damages, but the attorney must work within the bounds of that state’s laws.
In a work-related injury case, the plaintiff’s attorney can help determine which state’s workers’ compensation system applies and the amount of coverage an injured worker can expect. Some employers who operate in multiple states or require employees to travel for work have unique workers’ compensation systems in place and other factors that may come into play in a work-related injury case involving a California resident injured in Nevada.
