LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2013) - The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson represent clients who have been injured in car accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents, those who have been harmed in slip and fall incidents, people who have been mistreated in nursing homes and those who have been sexually abused. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement on behalf of an injured client in the amount of $165,000.00 after that client was involved in an accident that was allegedly caused by the defendant named in the case.

The lawsuit that relates to this situation was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada and it was assigned to Department Number XXVI. It was given a case number of A-12-669328-C and the plaintiff was an individual male. The defendants were an individual male truck driver and his employer, and the lawsuit sought damages that were sustained in a traffic accident that led to serious injuries being suffered by the plaintiff.

According to the court documents related to the matter, the plaintiff was in his vehicle on January 16, 2012 in Clark County, Nevada. At that time, he was allegedly hit from behind by a semi-truck that was owned by the defendant employer and being driven by the defendant employee. The plaintiff was stopped and was allegedly hit from behind by the truck that was being driven by the defendant employee. 

The court documents alleged that the defendant employee failed to pay attention to the road at the time of the accident and that the defendant employee was negligent by making an unsafe turn out of a private driveway. The documents further allege that these failures are what led to the crash in question and that this crash is what led to the plaintiff's injuries. 

Finally, the court documents alleged that the plaintiff suffered serious neck and back injuries as a result of the crash that required and that continue to require ongoing medical attention and treatment. The court documents stated that as a result of the accident, the plaintiff suffered several forms of loss that include medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and other financial losses. 

Rather than fully litigate the matter, the defendants were able to successfully negotiate an out-of-court settlement with the Las Vegas injury attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson. The amount of the settlement was $165,000.00, and the matter is now considered closed by all of the parties involved.
