LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2013) - The Henderson auto accident attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients who were wrongfully injured because of the negligent actions of others across Nevada for 30 years. The firm handles legal matters that arise after car accidents, trucking accidents, DUI accidents and pedestrian accidents. The firm also helps people who have been injured because of nursing home abuse and neglect. The attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson hereby announce that they have successfully negotiated a settlement with regards to a Nevada personal injury lawsuit that was filed after a car accident.
The lawsuit at issue here was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada. It was referred to Department Number XXIV and it was assigned a case number of A-10-626765-C. The plaintiff was an individual female who was allegedly injured because of the negligence of the named defendant who was also an individual female. The lawsuit was filed in pursuit of the recovery of damages that were to provide the plaintiff with compensation for several different forms of loss that she suffered.
According to the court documents associated with the lawsuit, the plaintiff was driving her vehicle within the borders of Clark County when she encountered a situation where she had the right-of-way. The documents went on to state that at this location, the defendant allegedly failed to yield the right-of-way and that this failure directly caused a collision between the two vehicles. The plaintiff suffered a serious injury to her leg that required hospitalization, surgery, ongoing medical oversight and medication.
As a result of this accident, the plaintiff filed the lawsuit and in the court documents alleged that: (a) the defendant owed the plaintiff a legal duty of care; (b) the defendant breached that duty of care by failing to act as a reasonable person would have in that situation; (c) this breach of the defendant's duty of care caused the injuries suffered by the plaintiff; and (d) the plaintiff suffered actual damages as a result of the collision.
Rather than fully litigate the matter, the Henderson auto accident attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson were able to work with the defense and successfully negotiate a settlement. As part of the settlement process, the two sides executed a confidentiality agreement. Based on the terms of this confidentiality agreement, the specifics regarding the amount of the settlement and other details cannot be disclosed by the parties involved in the lawsuit. The case has since been dismissed and the matter is now considered closed.
