LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - June 07, 2013) - The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients who have been injured because of the faulty actions of others across Nevada for 30 years. The firm handles cases that include car accidents, trucking accidents, DUI accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bite attacks and nursing home neglect and abuse. The attorneys at the firm hereby announce that they have successfully negotiated a settlement for a lawsuit filed on behalf of a client who was injured in a car accident that was allegedly caused by the defendant named in the claim.
Specifically, the Nevada personal injury lawsuit at issue here was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada and it was assigned to Department Number I. The case was provided with a case number of A-10-623392-C and it involved an individual female who was named as the plaintiff and an individual female who was named as the defendant. The lawsuit was filed in pursuit of damages that were caused by the car accident that gave rise to this issue.
According to the court documents, the plaintiff was driving her vehicle within the borders of Clark County when she was suddenly hit from behind by a vehicle being driven by the defendant. As a result of the rear-end accident, the plaintiff suffered several serious injuries including those that affected her neck and her back. These injuries required extensive and immediate medical care following the crash as well as ongoing rehabilitation.
The plaintiff filed the lawsuit against the defendant alleging that she was negligent in failing to see the plaintiff's vehicle in front of her and for failing to provide a reasonable following distance that would have otherwise allowed the crash to be avoided. As such, the court documents stated that the defendant violated the legal duty of care owed to the plaintiff and that this breach of the defendant's legal duty directly caused the injuries and losses suffered by the plaintiff.
After the case was filed, the two sides were able to avoid a trial. They came together and successfully negotiated a settlement that provided compensation for the plaintiff. A confidentiality agreement was also executed, meaning that the specific terms of the settlement cannot be disclosed. In consideration for this agreed-upon settlement, the Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson dismissed the lawsuit and the matter is now considered closed by everyone involved.
