LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 -- The Las Vegas accident lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson represent clients who have been wrongfully injured because of the negligent and reckless actions of others. The firm handles legal matters that result from traffic accidents, drunk driving accidents, slip and fall accidents, sexual abuse, nursing home neglect and abuse and several other types of incidents. The firm hereby announces that its attorneys have successfully negotiated a settlement with regards to a Nevada personal injury lawsuit that was filed in response to an alleged drunk driving accident that left the firm's client seriously injured.

Specifically, this Nevada personal injury lawsuit was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada and it was assigned to Department Number I. It was assigned a case number of A-10-628565-C and it was filed in response to a traffic accident that was allegedly caused by the individual defendant named in the case. The case was also filed against the defendant's insurance company.

According to the court documents, this lawsuit arose from a Las Vegas car accident that involved the defendant who was allegedly driving drunk at the time of the crash. The court documents stated that the defendant was arrested on suspicion of DUI after the crash and that the collision occurred when the defendant crossed into the plaintiff's lane of traffic and slammed into her vehicle.

The court documents went on to state that as a result of the accident, the plaintiff suffered multiple serious injuries that included trauma inflicted on her ribs, her neck and her back. Given the serious nature of the injuries suffered, the plaintiff filed the lawsuit seeking damages to compensate her for her medical costs, her lost income and her pain and suffering among other losses.

Rather than litigate the matter fully, the Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson were able to successfully negotiate an out-of-court settlement with the defendant, the defendant's insurance company and the plaintiff's insurance company on the basis of her uninsured motorist coverage. The amount of damages that were paid to the plaintiff is being kept confidential per agreement between the parties involved and the matter is now considered closed by those who were involved in the case.
