Personal Injury Attorney Ruth

Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Ruth

Located in the middle of White Pine County, Nevada is the town of Ruth. While today there may be only 440 or so residents living in this community which served as inspiration for the Stephen King novel “Desperation”, in its heyday Ruth had close to 2300 inhabitants.

Ruth earned its namesake by being the name of the original mining claim’s daughter. Initially built adjacent to the copper producing Robinson Mine, Ruth was constructed as a company town for the Nevada Consolidated Copper Company which allowed its workers to rent the homes and enjoy the amenities provided.

Ruth continued to be prosperous well into the 1920s and was eventually taken over by the Kennecott Copper Corporation in 1933. Eventually, the town changed hands again in 1955 when the houses were sold to the John W. Galbreath Company and occupants had the option to buy their home or move. At this same time, Ruth was relocated 2 miles north to allow for the expansion of the Deep Ruth Mine.

In 1978, the mines in Ruth were closed down and the town has since been on a steady decline. Many still hold hope that once the mines re-open, Ruth will shake off its “ghost town” status and re-grow.

Protecting the Hard Workers of Ruth, Nevada

Ruth has a long history in the mining industry, one of the most laborious and physically taxing industries. Numerous individuals who worked in this industry either once suffered or still do suffer from spinal cord injuries that are a direct result of the hard tasks that they had to fulfill on the job each and every day.

How Can You Tell If You Have Injured Your Spine?

There are a few key signs that may indicate a spinal cord injury:

  • Loss of sensation in your limbs
  • Low muscle strength or paralysis
  • Muscle contractions
  • Suddenly reduced control over bladder and/or bowel
  • Fractured/dislocated vertebrae

Depending on the severity of the injury, individuals suffering from a spinal cord injury may require time off work, medical assistance, rehabilitation, or even surgery. In some cases, those with spinal cord injuries are permanently disabled and will never be able to work in their chosen occupation again.

A spinal cord injury can be devastating for the injured party and their loved ones. Our legal team at the office of Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen has dedicated themselves to helping injured individuals seek the compensation they deserve for any damages they face, whether that is lost wages, medical bills, or pain and suffering.
