LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/13 -- The Las Vegas drunk driver accident lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing people who have been injured and family members of people who have been wrongfully killed in crashes caused by drunk drivers for 30 years. The firm also represents clients who were wrongfully injured in traffic accidents, because of nursing home abuse or neglect and people who have been sexually abused. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement for a Nevada personal injury lawsuit that was filed after a car accident left the firm's client seriously injured.

Specifically, the lawsuit that was initiated was filed in the District Court for Clark County, Nevada. It was sent to Department Number VI and it was assigned a case number of A561505. The plaintiff was an individual male and the defendant was also an individual male along with that driver's insurance company. The lawsuit was filed in pursuit of the recovery of damages sustained in a car accident that was allegedly caused by the defendant.

According to the court documents associated with the lawsuit, the plaintiff was driving his vehicle within the confines of Clark County when he approached a situation involving the right-of-way. The documents argue that the plaintiff had the right-of-way at this point, but that the defendant violated this right-of-way and as a result of this violation the two vehicles collided. The court documents not only alleged that the defendant caused the accident but also that the defendant was under the influence of alcohol at the time the collision occurred.

The plaintiff suffered several severe injuries, including those inflicted on his back that required hospitalization, extensive observation, ongoing rehabilitation and a lengthy protocol of medication. The plaintiff was unable to work for a period of time and he incurred medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering as forms of damages that were being pursued by the lawsuit at issue. The court documents argued that the defendant should have to pay for those damages because he allegedly caused the crash.

Rather than fully litigate the matter, the Las Vegas drunk driver accident lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson were able to successfully negotiate a settlement with the defense. This settlement also involved the execution of a confidentiality agreement that bars anyone associated with the case from discussing the details of the compensation involved. In consideration for this agreement, the lawsuit was dismissed and the matter is now considered closed.
