LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2012) - The Las Vegas injury attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson are dedicated to providing legal representation to people who have been wrongfully injured by the negligent and/or the reckless actions of others. These matters include legal claims that arise as a result of car accidents, pedestrian accidents, nursing home abuse, sexual abuse and traffic accidents that are caused by drunk drivers. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement on behalf of a client who was allegedly injured by a drunk driver in a crash after filing a Nevada personal injury lawsuit on that person's behalf. Terms of the settlement are confidential per agreement between the parties.
This Nevada personal injury lawsuit was filed in 2012 in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada, and it was assigned to Department Number II. The matter was given a case number of A-12-670444-C and it was filed after the defendant that was named in the lawsuit allegedly caused a Nevada car accident because she was driving with alcohol in her system. The case sought damages that compensated the plaintiff for several different injuries that she sustained as a result of the accident.
Specifically, the court documents alleged that the plaintiff was driving her vehicle in Clark County, Nevada when she was suddenly rear-ended by a vehicle being driven by the defendant. The plaintiff suffered severe back injuries as a result of the crash that required extensive medical treatment and caused her to miss time at work. The defendant, the court documents state, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of DUI.
The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson filed the Nevada personal injury lawsuit at issue here in order to properly pursue a recovery of damages that would compensate the plaintiff for losses that included medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and other forms of loss that were allegedly incurred because of the crash. Rather than fully litigate the matter, the parties were able to negotiate a confidential settlement and the case is now considered closed.
