Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
The Las Vegas injury lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients who were injured because of the negligent or reckless actions of others for many years. The firm handles Nevada personal injury lawsuits that arise from such incidents as traffic accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect, sexual abuse and slip-and-fall lawsuits in which clients seek to recover compensation for losses incurred. The attorneys at the firm hereby announce that they have successfully settled a lawsuit based on a theory of premises liability. The terms of the settlement are being kept confidential per agreement of the parties involved.
Specifically, this Nevada personal injury lawsuit was filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada and it was assigned to Department Number III. The matter was given a case number of A-11-652578-C and it was filed against Ralph’s Grocery Company, DBA Food 4 Less. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a married couple after the female plaintiff was allegedly injured because of a dangerous condition that was present on the property of the defendant.
According to the court documents, the plaintiff was lawfully on the premises of the defendant on April 20, 2009 for the purpose of shopping for groceries. The court documents go on to allege that while the female plaintiff was lawfully on the premises for that purpose, she slipped and fell because of a water leak that was coming from the flower display located inside the store. The female plaintiff suffered severe injuries to her neck and her back that required extensive medical treatment including surgeries.
The court documents stated that the female plaintiff filed the lawsuit based on allegations that the defendant had actual or constructive notice of the dangerous condition that was the wet floor. The documents further allege that the defendant failed to take proper steps to either remove this dangerous condition or to clearly warn those who would be lawfully on the property of its existence.
As such, the lawsuit pleadings state that the plaintiff was seeking damages to help compensate her for several forms of loss that included past and future medical care, past and future lost earnings and past and future pain and suffering damages. In addition, the male plaintiff who is the husband of the female plaintiff joined the lawsuit in order to pursue damages for loss of consortium.
Rather than litigating the matter to its completion, the parties to this action were able to come together to successfully negotiate an out-of-court settlement that compensated the plaintiffs for their losses. Per the terms of the settlement agreement that was executed between the parties and that was mentioned above, the terms of this settlement are being kept confidential and the matter is now closed.
