Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/13 -- The Las Vegas injury
lawyers at Bernstein & Poisson have been representing clients who
have been injured while legally on the premises of others for many
years, and the firm handles negligence matters that require
litigation in order for a resolution to be reached. The firm hereby
announces that it has filed a Nevada personal injury lawsuit on
behalf of a client who was allegedly injured due to the negligence of
the named defendant in the case.
The lawsuit at issue was filed on behalf of an individual male
plaintiff in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada. The case was
assigned to Department Number II and it was given a case number of
A-12-671312-C. The defendant named in the lawsuit is Wal-Mart Stores,
Inc., as the injuries suffered by the plaintiff allegedly occurred on
the premises of that defendant and due to that defendant's
According to the court documents that were filed in furtherance of
the effort on the part of the plaintiff to recover damages for the
losses he sustained, he was allegedly a lawful entrant onto the
property of the defendant when he unwittingly encountered a pool of
liquid on the floor. When he stepped into the liquid, he slipped,
fell and suffered serious injuries to his neck and to his back that
required and that continue to require extensive medical care.
The court documents related to the lawsuit state that the plaintiff
seeks damages that, if recovered, would compensate him for several
forms of loss that include past and future medical costs, past and
future lost income and past and future pain and suffering. The
damages sought would also compensate the plaintiff for costs
associated with bringing this lawsuit. The specific amount of damages
that are being sought will be proven at trial.
The court documents allege that the defendant Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
should be held liable for these damages because: (1) there was a
dangerous condition present on the property, (2) the plaintiff was a
lawful and foreseeable entrant onto that property, (3) there was a
dangerous condition on the property in the form of the liquid that
had gathered on the floor, (4) the defendant either knew or should
have known about that dangerous condition, (5) the defendant should
have either removed that dangerous condition or clearly warned of its
existence and (6) the defendant did neither and is therefore
negligent. The case remains active in the Nevada court system.
