LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - April 22, 2013) - The Las Vegas accident attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson represent clients who have been wrongfully injured by negligent and reckless drivers in car accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents throughout Nevada. They also handle cases involving drunk driving accidents, sexual abuse and nursing home abuse and negligence. The attorneys at the firm hereby announce that they have successfully negotiated a settlement on behalf of a client who was injured in a car accident that occurred in Las Vegas.
The Nevada personal injury lawsuit that was filed in response to the crash at issue was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada. It was assigned to Department Number 24 and it was given a case number of A-10-612347-C. The plaintiff was an individual male and the defendant was an individual female who was alleged to have caused the accident. The plaintiff sought several different forms of damages.
According to the court documents, the car accident in question took place within Clark County, Nevada when the defendant allegedly failed to yield the right-of-way that was due to the plaintiff. As a result of failing to yield the right-of-way, the defendant allegedly crashed into the vehicle being driven by the plaintiff, and as a result of this crash the plaintiff suffered multiple serious injuries to his back and to his neck that required extensive medical care and ongoing treatment.
The court documents went on to allege that as a result of this negligence, the plaintiff suffered several different forms of loss including those relating to past and future medical costs. The plaintiff also sought damages as compensation for loss of income, loss of enjoyment of life and for pain and suffering and other forms of loss.
Rather than fully litigate the matter, the two sides were able to come together and successfully negotiate a settlement in lieu of proceeding to trial. Per a confidentiality agreement that was executed between the parties, the amount of the settlement will not be disclosed. However, the Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson dismissed the lawsuit when the settlement agreement was reached, and the case is now considered closed by everyone involved.
