LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/13 -- The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients who have been injured while legally on the premises of others for many years, and the firm handles negligence matters that require litigation in order for a resolution to be reached. The firm hereby announces that it has filed a Nevada personal injury lawsuit on behalf of a client who was allegedly injured due to the negligence of the named defendant in the case.

The lawsuit at issue was filed on behalf of an individual male plaintiff in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada. The case was assigned to Department Number II and it was given a case number of A-12-671312-C. The defendant named in the lawsuit is Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., as the injuries suffered by the plaintiff allegedly occurred on the premises of that defendant and due to that defendant's negligence.

According to the court documents that were filed in furtherance of the effort on the part of the plaintiff to recover damages for the losses he sustained, he was allegedly a lawful entrant onto the property of the defendant when he unwittingly encountered a pool of liquid on the floor. When he stepped into the liquid, he slipped, fell and suffered serious injuries to his neck and to his back that required and that continue to require extensive medical care.

The court documents related to the lawsuit state that the plaintiff seeks damages that, if recovered, would compensate him for several forms of loss that include past and future medical costs, past and future lost income and past and future pain and suffering. The damages sought would also compensate the plaintiff for costs associated with bringing this lawsuit. The specific amount of damages that are being sought will be proven at trial.

The court documents allege that the defendant Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. should be held liable for these damages because: (1) there was a dangerous condition present on the property, (2) the plaintiff was a lawful and foreseeable entrant onto that property, (3) there was a dangerous condition on the property in the form of the liquid that had gathered on the floor, (4) the defendant either knew or should have known about that dangerous condition, (5) the defendant should have either removed that dangerous condition or clearly warned of its existence and (6) the defendant did neither and is therefore negligent. The case remains active in the Nevada court system.
