LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - May 10, 2013) - The Las Vegas accident attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients who were wrongfully injured in car accidents for 30 years. The firm handles cases that include car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, trucking accidents and drunk driving accidents. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated an out-of-court settlement with regards to a Nevada personal injury lawsuit that was filed in response to injuries suffered by clients in a crash that was allegedly the fault of the defendant driver.
Specifically, this lawsuit was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada, and it was assigned to Department Number XXII. The matter was given a case number of A-10-621077-C and it was filed against two female individuals and on behalf of an individual female who was listed as the legal guardian of four minors. The case sought damages in response to a car accident in which the plaintiffs allegedly suffered serious injuries.
According to the court documents, the matter arose after a car accident occurred within the borders of Clark County Nevada. The court documents stated that the plaintiffs were in their vehicle when suddenly they were hit from behind by the vehicle being driven by one of the defendants. Each of the plaintiffs suffered serious injuries to their backs and to their necks that required immediate and ongoing medical care, treatment and rehabilitation.
The court documents went on to allege that the defendant driver was negligent in failing to recognize the vehicle she was trailing in time to come to a safe stop, thereby causing the rear-end collision that occurred. The lawsuit sought damages that would compensate the plaintiffs for their current and future medical costs, their current and future losses in terms of enjoyment of life and their current and future pain and suffering. The lawsuit also sought damages to compensate the plaintiffs for several other forms of loss that were incurred in furtherance of filing this lawsuit.
Rather than fully litigate the matter, the two sides to the lawsuit were able to come together and successfully negotiate a settlement that provided compensation to the plaintiffs who were injured in the crash. Per an agreement between the parties, the specific terms of the settlement are being kept confidential and the plaintiffs responded to this agreement by dismissing the lawsuit. The matter is now considered closed.
