LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Dec 28, 2012) - The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson represent clients who have been injured because of the negligent actions of others, and they handle several different types of litigation matters that include those that arise from negligently maintained properties. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement with regards to a Nevada personal injury lawsuit. This claim was filed in response to alleged negligence on the part of the defendant named in the case such that the defendant did not provide a safe environment for the client. The terms of the settlement are confidential per agreement of the parties involved.
This Nevada personal injury lawsuit was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada and it was assigned to Department Number 32. It was given a case number of A-11-652590-C and it was filed on behalf of an individual female who was allegedly injured while on the premises of the named defendant, which was the Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. The case arose from an incident that led to several serious injuries being suffered by the plaintiff.
According to the court documents associated with the lawsuit, the plaintiff was lawfully on the premises of the defendant when she slipped and fell on what was described as a foreign substance on the floor. As a result of this fall, the plaintiff suffered severe injuries to her shoulder and to her knee, and she ultimately needed surgery to correct her knee surgery. The plaintiff sued the defendant with the help of the Las Vegas injury attorneys at the firm in order to pursue damages for the losses she incurred.
These losses included those associated with medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and several other costs and losses that allegedly arose because of this incident. Ultimately, the attorneys at the firm and the defendants were able to negotiate a settlement without completing the personal injury trial. Per agreement between the parties, the terms of the settlement will remain confidential.
