Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Golconda
Golconda has a population of a little over 200 individuals. It is located on the Humboldt River along Route 80. The town was named after the diamond mining center of Golkonda, India.
Golconda was established when copper, silver, gold, and lead were discovered in the area. Entrepreneurs from all over opened mines and mills there. During its peak mining years, the town was extremely diverse. It had citizens of all ethnicities including native-born European Americans, French, Portuguese, Paiute, and Chinese.
In the early 1900s, the mining industry became less popular, and Golconda’s mines closed. After that, ranching and farming became popular. Currently, Golconda is considered just a stop on Route 80.
The town’s median household income is about $55,500, which is slightly higher than Nevada’s median income.
The river along which Golconda is situated is the third longest river in the Great Basin of Nevada. It empties into the Humboldt Sink, and it is the 5th largest river in the United States. While it does not have an outlet to the ocean, it is the largest in terms of the area drained. The Humboldt River has many tributaries, most of which drain sparsely populated areas in the north.
Workers’ Comp in Golconda
Workers’ compensation protects employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. Under Nevada law, an employer is required to carry workman’s comp insurance. If an employee becomes injured or ill on the job, and the injury or illness is work-related, the employee might be able to make a claim against its employer’s workers’ comp insurer.
Workers’ compensation benefits include:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Death benefits, if the injury or illness results in death
Workman’s comp can be extremely complicated, and oftentimes an insurance company will deny a valid claim. It is wise to seek an attorney experience in handling workman’s compensation cases, such as ours at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith.
Our legal team has been handling workers’ comp claims for many years, and we have secured successful settlements for our clients. Most recently, we secured a $1.25 million settlement for a slip and fall that resulted in reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
If you, or a loved one, have suffered a job-related illness or injury or if you have filed for workers’ comp benefits and been denied, we can help.
