Personal Injury Attorney Nelson

Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Nelson

Nelson (CDP) is a former mining town that forms part of Clark County, Nevada. It is situated in the El Dorado Canyon, Eldorado Mountains, on the southeast of the Eldorado Valley and a short distance from Boulder City.

Centuries ago, the Spaniards called this town “El Dorado” and it gained recognition when large deposits of gold, silver and other precious minerals were discovered in 1859. This community was eventually named “Nelson”, after a prominent prospector Charles Nelson.

Nelson is a small town with approximately 4.8 square miles and a very small population or around 37. Nelson residents work in management and sales positions and as drivers of trucks and other vehicles. They spend an average of 68 minutes commuting to work every day, significantly higher than the US national and Nevada state average. As a result, they face a greater than average risk of auto accidents that can lead to serious physical injuries or death.

Town Attractions

The notorious mines of Nelson may have been abandoned but the old sites have remained and continue to draw visitors. However, wherever there has been a search for minerals on land, there are sure to be plenty of openings and mine workings that can be dangerous.

Unfilled mine openings can lead to falls while the abandoned mine sites can harbor toxic chemicals, deadly gases, old dynamite and explosives, rattlesnakes and other hazards.

If you or someone you know is involved in a falling accident or other mining accident, your Nelson personal injury attorney can help you obtain compensation from the party responsible for your injury.

Accidents in Nelson

Accidents such as car, truck or bus crashes, and slips and falls can happen when you least expect them. They may be due to a number of factors and, depending on the immediate cause of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Financial compensation is essential to pay for the costs of recovery for accident victims or their families. It includes the cost of medical bills, ongoing treatment, and rehabilitation, therapy, lost income or earnings, property damage, and pain and suffering. The claims procedure is a complex one and can include negotiations with insurance company representatives who are trained to block any financial settlement or pay out the barest minimum.
