Las Vegas Auto Accident Lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson Settle Personal Injury Lawsuit

The Las Vegas Accident Lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson, URL http://www.vegashurt.com, Have Settled a Personal Injury Lawsuit Arising From a Car Accident

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - May 16, 2013) - The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients wrongfully injured by the actions of others for 30 years. The firm handles legal matters relating to car accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, DUI accidents, allegations of sexual abuse and nursing home abuse and neglect. The firm announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement for a lawsuit that was filed in response to a car accident that was allegedly caused by the defendant named in the case.

The lawsuit at issue here was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada. It was assigned to Department Number XV and it was given a case number of A-10-620957-C. The lawsuit named an individual female as the plaintiff in the case and it also named an individual female as a defendant. The case was filed in an effort to recover damages that the plaintiff alleges were incurred because the defendant allegedly caused a collision between the two parties that led to the losses suffered.

According to the court documents associated with the case, the plaintiff was in her vehicle in Clark County, Nevada when she was allegedly hit from behind by a vehicle being driven by the plaintiff. As a result of the collision, the plaintiff suffered severe injuries to her neck and to her back, and these injuries required extensive medical attention that included emergency treatment, protocols of medication and ongoing physical rehabilitation.

The court documents went on to allege that as a result of the crash, the plaintiff suffered several different forms of economic and non-economic losses including those related to medical care, pain and suffering, loss of income and financial damages relating to the destruction of her property. The lawsuit that was filed sought a recovery for those damages both that had already been incurred at the time of the filing and for those that would be incurred in the future.

After the case was filed, the Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson were able to successfully negotiate a settlement with the defendant so that the matter would not need to continue in court. The specific terms of the settlement agreement were not disclosed, as the two sides executed a confidentiality agreement. In consideration for the confidential settlement amount, the attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson dismissed the lawsuit and the matter is now considered closed.
