LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2013) - The Las Vegas injury lawyers at the law firm of Bernstein & Poisson represent clients who have been wrongfully injured because of the negligence, recklessness and intentional conduct of others. The firm handles legal matters arising from traffic accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect, sexual abuse and premises liability. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement in furtherance of a Nevada personal injury lawsuit that was filed on behalf of a client who was allegedly injured on the premises of the defendant named in the case. Terms of the settlement are confidential per agreement of the parties involved.
Specifically, this Nevada slip-and-fall lawsuit was filed in March of 2012 against Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. The case was filed on behalf of an injured individual plaintiff and it was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada. The matter was assigned a case number of A-12-658632-C. It was assigned to Department Number XXXI, and it was filed in an effort to recover damages allegedly sustained by the plaintiff when she fell and was injured on the premises of that defendant.
The case arose based on, according to court documents, an incident that occurred on August 25, 2011. The court documents state that the plaintiff was lawfully on the premises of the defendant on that day as a paying store customer. While she was there, the plaintiff allegedly slipped and fell while near the produce section of the store. The woman suffered severe back and neck injuries that required extensive medical care and that resulted in substantial losses for the plaintiff.
The court documents went on to allege that the reason that the plaintiff female slipped, fell and was injured on the premises of the defendant was because a water pipe that was part of the irrigation system that was used to water the produce periodically was moved out of its usual location. The moving of this pipe allegedly led to water accumulating on the floor, and this was the water that the plaintiff stepped into and slipped on when she was injured.
The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson alleged in the court documents that the defendant had owed a duty to provide a safe premises for the plaintiff and that by failing to either remove the dangerous condition or clearly warn the plaintiff of its existence that it had breached that duty of care. After the lawsuit was filed, the defendant negotiated a settlement with the plaintiff. The terms of that settlement are confidential per agreement of the parties involved, and the matter is considered closed.
