Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
The Las Vegas injury attorneys at Bernstein & Poisson represent clients who have been injured by the negligent and reckless actions of others. The defendants in their lawsuits include both individuals and business entities, and they handle claims that arise from traffic accidents, nursing home abuse, sexual abuse and general negligence. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement on behalf of a client who was allegedly injured by the negligence of a telephone company. The terms of the settlement are being kept confidential.
Specifically, this Nevada personal injury lawsuit was filed on behalf of an individual plaintiff against the Central Telephone Company. The case was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada and it was assigned a case number of A648004. The lawsuit was assigned to Department Number III, and it arose because of allegations that the plaintiff was injured by a broken cable box under the control of the defendant at the time.
The case was filed after the plaintiff, an individual male, was lawfully walking on Oakley Boulevard on or about June 17, 2010, according to the court documents related to the case. The court documents went on to allege that at that point, the cover to a cable box suddenly broke and seriously injured the plaintiff. The court documents went on to allege that as a result of this cable box breaking, the plaintiff suffered back injuries that required extensive medical care and that involved substantial pain and suffering.
The court documents alleged that the defendant had control over that cable box and therefore the legal responsibility to maintain it in a safe condition so that it did not pose a threat of harm to those who happened to be in the area. The documents alleged that the defendants failed to take steps to properly maintain this cable box and in addition alleged that the defendant company was negligent in hiring the personnel that was supposed to handle this process.
The court documents alleged that as a result of this negligence, the plaintiff was badly injured and suffered several different forms of loss. These forms of loss included medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and other costs and fees. Rather than litigate the matter, the parties were able to successfully negotiate an out-of-court settlement. As stated above, the specific terms of this settlement are being kept confidential per agreement between the parties, and the matter is now considered closed by those involved.
