Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Jackpot
Jackpot Nevada Accident Lawyers
Straddling the northeastern border of Nevada and Idaho lies Jackpot, Nevada, home to over 1000 residents and visited by many others. Since Idaho declared all forms of casino gaming illegal in 1954, Jackpot (originally known as “Horse Shu” and then “Unincorporated Town No. 1”) has become a tourist destination for those in Idaho who want to test their luck at the casinos.
This census-designated area grew from having two gaming establishments, Cactus Pete’s (named after “Cactus Pete” Piersanti) and the Horseshu Club, to five hotels and motels with casinos, such as Barton’s Club 93 and the West Star Hotel and Casino.
Protecting the Rights of Jackpot Residents
Living in a small town with few amenities and services means that the residents of Jackpot often have to travel distances when it comes to work or obtaining necessities. Add the fact that it’s a tourist destination, with many out-of-towners driving on the roads, and you have some key contributors to motor vehicle accidents.
The good news about traffic accidents in this state is that they have declined over the past year. However, statistics have recently revealed that the number of fatal motor vehicle accidents have actually increased in rural areas like Jackpot. Elko County, where Jackpot is located, saw the most dramatic rise so far in 2014 when compared to other Nevada counties.
