Fantastic Result Resulting From a Nominal Settlement

January 15, 2021

Daniel J. Klett from Murchison & Cumming's Las Vegas office, achieved a fantastic result in a negligence and strict product liability case.

On November 10, 2016 the plaintiff alleged she went to service a bar top video poker machine, and while servicing the machine, the door allegedly fell and crushed her hands and fingers. As a result of the alleged accident, she alleged permanent nerve damage to her hand along with emotional distress. Her claims included negligence, strict product liability, and breach of implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

After she initially rejected M&C's Offer of Judgment in the amount of $5,000 when the case began, they eventually settled for a much lower $3,000 final offer just prior to the hearing on our Motion to Dismiss and Motion for Summary Judgment. During the course of litigation, the plaintiff was claiming damages approaching $1,000,000.00.
