Many Nevada residents travel to California for business and pleasure, but what happens when a Nevada resident suffers an injury while traveling out of state? When a personal injury or other legal matter occurs, the resulting legal proceedings take place within the court system of the state where the incident took place. This means a Nevada resident could potentially face a legal battle in a California court. If you find yourself in this situation, contact DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo today to schedule a free consultation with a Nevada attorney licensed in California.

How Can a Nevada Attorney License in Nevada Help?
If you are a Nevada resident facing a legal issue in the California court system, you may not know where to turn for legal representation. Coordinating with an out-of-state attorney can be stressful and requires extensive back-and-forth travel. If the attorney travels to you, you will likely incur significant travel and expense billing.
Working with a Nevada attorney licensed in California means you can easily work with your attorney closer to home for the duration of your case. However, you will likely need to visit California for official legal proceedings such as depositions and court hearings. Your Nevada attorney licensed in California can help coordinate travel for required legal meetings, navigate the state laws that apply in your case, and acquire crucial evidence from a variety of sources.
If you sustained a work-related injury in California as a Nevada employee, you may face complicated workers’ compensation claim issues. Depending on the nature of your employment, the capacity in which you were performing job duties, the location of the accident, and the damages involved, your employer’s ability to cover your damages may be limited. For example, if your Nevada employment situation requires you to regularly travel to California, your employer may have policies in place or special insurance coverage that could apply to an injury you sustain out of state.
When to Call a Nevada Attorney Licensed in California
If you are a Nevada resident who needs to navigate the California court system, working with an out-of-state attorney can be very frustrating. If you live in Nevada but your attorney is in California, coordinating travel for depositions and other required meetings can be stressful and expensive. You may prefer to work with a Nevada attorney, but an attorney must have a license to practice law in the state in which a case unfolds. If you must navigate the California court system, you must secure legal representation from an attorney with a license to practice in California.
