BACKGROUND: 

The claim is a result of a motor vehicle accident on or around June 29, 2021, when the front end of the claimant's vehicle impacted the side door of a Clark County vehicle thereby causing damage to the frontend of Claimant's vehicle and causing the claimant's vehicle's air bags to deploy. Claimant's vehicle sustained $2,907.48 in total property damage and was a total loss. The Claimant also alleged $40,633.75 in medical treatment resulting from the subject accident. 

Through negotiations with legal counsel for the claimant, the claimant has agreed to accept $60,000.00 in settlement of the bodily injury claim to avoid any further costs and legal expenses of possible litigation in this case. If the settlement is approved, the County would also avoid costs and expenses of any future litigation. $25,000 of this settlement amount will be covered under Clark County's deductible, with the remaining $35,000 to be covered by the liability pool.

The proposed settlement has been reviewed and approved by the Civil Division of the District Attorney’s Office and the Clark County Liability Pool Committee members.
