Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Gold Hill
The ghost town of Gold Hill, Nevada is one of an interesting past. The Gold Hill Hotel is known as being the oldest hotel within the state of Nevada, being built in 1859 and 3 years or so before the area was incorporated just to avoid being annexed by a neighboring community.
From 1868 to 1888, Gold Hill was extremely prosperous by mining the Comstock Lode and brought in a large amount of silver and gold ore. However, before the turn of the 20th century the population already started to dwindle. Then, in 1942 when the are Production Board shut down all mining operations in the area, the population siphoned off and settled at the close to 200 residents who live in this unincorporated community within Storey County today.
Securing the Health of Gold Hill Residents
Gold Hill may be vastly underpopulated and no longer a thriving mining town, but a number of Nevada residents who work in laborious jobs still suffer shoulder injuries every single day. Our shoulders are particularly susceptible to injury because they are the most movable joint in our body, consisting of three bones:
- The scapula (shoulder blade)
- The clavicle (collarbone)
- The humerus (upper arm)
The fact that it is a ball and socket joint only makes it all the more prone to injuries such as sprains, strains, separations, dislocations, bursitis, tendinitis, frozen shoulder and even arthritis.
What Can Cause a Shoulder Injury?
A report from 2006 revealed that close to 7.5 million individuals paid a visit to their physician because of a shoulder injury or upper arm strain and sprain. More than 4 million of those visits were exclusively for rotator cuff related issues.
Our shoulders, though one of the most useful parts of our bodies, are also one of the most commonly injured. There are a number of reasons why we may suffer a shoulder injury, with some of the most common being:
- Bending or lifting
- Automobile accidents
- Sporting injuries
If you or someone you know is dealing with pain or disability as the result of shoulder pain, the very first step is to seek medical attention. The next step is to then seek legal counsel if you believe that the injury is the result of the negligence of another. The personal injury attorneys at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter and Smith will listen to your case for free and help you assess your eligibility for compensation.
