I had a head injury in a Las Vegas casino, will I need a Nevada lawyer?

If you want to maximize any chance of recovery, you should seek the advice of a NV personal injury attorney. You need to provide more facts. Just because someone hit you does not necessarily mean the casino is liable. Intentional acts are not covered by insurance. Your best claim, based on the facts you supplied, is a lack of security at the casino. But you need to provide more facts if you want better answers.
Yes, an attorney who is licensed to practice in Nevada.
This is not intended to be legal advise or as legal representation. I am a California personal injury attorney . Be aware that every state has its own statute of limitations; and statutes & case laws that govern the handling of these matters.
You should get a Nevada Lawyer. Technically you don't need a Nevada lawyer, however if you are serious about a good settlement you should have a lawyer. you should also make sure your medical condition is thoroughly investigated.

If a case needs to be filed in State court in Nevada you would likely need an attorney licensed in Nevada. You should at least confirm the statute of limitations / any special notice requirements etc. with a Nevada lawyer. A Michigan lawyer might be able to negotiate a settlement. Any attorney would need to get detailed facts from you to try and determine any liability on the casino's part.
Always consult an attorney IMMEDIATELY as there are time limitations on filing a lawsuit.
Much more information is needed. If you had significant injuries you should consult a Nevada personal injury attorney. Don't try to resolve it yourself.
