LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/13 -- The Las Vegas DUI accident lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients who were wrongfully injured by the negligent and reckless actions of others for 30 years. The firm represents clients who have been wrongfully injured in car accidents, drunk driving crashes and all other types of traffic accidents. The firm also represents those who have been injured because of medical negligence, because of nursing home abuse and neglect and because of sexual abuse. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully settled a lawsuit that was filed in response to a car accident that was allegedly caused by a drunk driver.
Specifically, the Nevada personal injury lawsuit at issue here was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada. It was sent to Department Number XX and it was assigned a case number of A-11-632628-C. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of an individual male who was injured and it was filed against an individual male and his insurance company. The claim sought damages that would have compensated the plaintiff for losses incurred in a car accident that included medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering.
According to the court documents, the plaintiff was driving within the borders of Clark County when he was suddenly hit from behind by a vehicle that was being driven by the defendant. The plaintiff suffered severe injuries to his neck and to his back, and these injuries required ongoing treatment and oversight that included rehabilitation and medication. The court documents also stated that the defendant was arrested on suspicion of DUI after the crash.
The attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson argued in the court documents that the defendant was not only negligent in causing the car accident that led to the injuries and losses suffered by the plaintiff but that the defendant was reckless for even driving a vehicle while allegedly under the influence of alcohol. However, rather than fully litigate the matter, the two sides were able to come together and successfully negotiate a settlement.
In consideration for the settlement amount that was received, the two sides executed a confidentiality agreement. This agreement prevents anyone associated with the case from disclosing the identities of those who were involved with it and it prevents a disclosure of the sum that was paid in the settlement. The attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson have since dismissed the lawsuit and the matter is now considered closed.
