Jean is a small commercial town in Clark County, Nevada, located approximately 12 mi north of the Nevada-California state line along Interstate 15. Las Vegas is located about 30 mi (48 km) to the north. There are no residents of Jean, Nevada, but many people in nearby communities like Primm and Sandy Valley have "Jean" listed as the city in their mailing address because Jean is the location of the main post office in the 89019 ZIP code. Las Vegas Boulevard South ends about a mile south of Jean, and contiguously runs northbound past Las Vegas, ending near the I-15-US 93 Junction. The area is mostly commercial with the exception of the post office and the courthouse, with commercial outlets such as the Gold Strike Hotel and Gambling Hall, the Jean Sport Aviation Center (used for sport activities like skydiving), Jean Conservation Camp (a minimum-security, all female Nevada Department of Corrections Facility established in 1987) and a Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) substation. The Nevada Landing Hotel and Casino was also located here but has since been demolished in April 2008 with the exception of its sign. The Jean Post Office is located on Las Vegas Boulevard in Jean. The Goodsprings Township Courthouse is also located in Jean.

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury includes injuries to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. If the negligence of another person can be proved, the person who is injured may be entitled to monetary compensation from that person who was negligent. Attorneys often represent clients on a contingency basis, in which the attorneys fee is a percentage of the compensation the plaintiff receives, payable when the case is resolved. Cases involving people who have suffered an injury for which someone else (an individual or business) may be legally liable -- may include injuries caused by car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, and emotional distress.
