Nevada County Attorneys
Nevada County is located in the Sierra Nevada area of California, which is part of the greater Sacramento area. It occupies a large geographical area but has a smaller population than many of the surrounding counties. The county has a total area of almost 975 square miles, but had a population of less than 100,000 in the 2010 census. The main cities in Nevada County are Nevada City (which is the county seat), Grass Valley, Truckee, and Penn Valley.
Although Nevada County has a fairly small population when compared with other counties in the area, there are a disproportionate number of automobile accidents and traffic deaths. In 2011, there were six fatalities and 393 injuries from automobile accidents in Nevada County. In addition, there were two pedestrian fatalities and 17 pedestrian injuries, 15 bicyclist injuries, and one motorcycle fatality and 30 motorcycle injuries.
Fortunately, help is available for Nevada County automobile accident victims. Micha Star Liberty of Liberty Law is a personal injury attorney who works in the San Francisco Bay area, and serves accident victims who have been injured in automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, rollover accidents, bicycle accidents, truck accidents, and SUV accidents. Liberty Law also helps victims of brain injuries, burn injuries, or spinal cord injuries.
Victims of automobile accidents often are confused and uncertain about what to do. They may have mounting medical bills and may be unable to work, which can lead to financial devastation. Their vehicle may have been destroyed, and they may be coping with the emotional aftermath of the accident. Automobile accident victims may be unsure of where to turn for help, and may not like the idea of contacting an attorney, believing instead that they can settle their case directly with the insurance company.
Micha Star Liberty of Liberty Law works extensively with accident victims in the Nevada County area. Liberty Law helps to investigate the accident, gather evidence, determine the parties who are responsible, and pursue claims against the responsible parties, which could include filing a lawsuit. Not only does this help accident victims from the pressure of making claims on their own, but accident victims who hire an attorney frequently receive more compensation than those who do not hire an attorney, even after deducting attorneys’ fees.
Liberty Law also works with employee and employers in Nevada County who have legal issues relating to employment. Workers often experience harassment or discrimination at work, and may need legal help. Harassment and discrimination may be illegal, if they are based on an illegal purpose such as sex, pregnancy, national origin, gender, ethnicity, age, disability, or sexual orientation. Employees also may face other issues in the workplace, such as not being paid properly for all hours worked, including overtime, sick pay, and vacation time. They may be dealing with a bullying boss or have been improperly characterized as an independent contractor rather than an employee.
Liberty Law also works with employers who have legal issues. Employers often need legal guidance in drafting an employment contract, or in performing workplace investigations in the event of allegations of workplace misconduct. Micha Star Liberty can help answer employers’ legal questions, or can provide help on drafting employee handbooks.
