In what originally seemed to be an unending spiral of unfortunate and tragic circumstances, our excellent team of attorneys in our Las Vegas office was able to turn the worst of circumstances into a win on behalf of our client. In Quintana v. Outdoor Promotions, Inc. (Clark County District Court Case No. A-15-724693-C), our client was a regional entity that oversees public transportation in Southern Nevada. This lawsuit involved an individual getting injured while waiting at a bus stop as a result of someone else, not our client, jumping the curb and crashing into the occupied bus-shelter. Las Vegas Partner Anthony T. Garasi and Associate Liza M. Velazco obtained a complete dismissal of all claims against our client by arguing not only the pertinent Nevada law, but also the importance of the governmental process and the spirit and intent of the immunity statute.
Not only did our Las Vegas office win the case above, but also recently overcame a virtual onslaught of claims by local attorneys. This is the Las Vegas office’s fifth successful early dismissal in similar bus-stop-injury claims.
Our firm is the leader in public entity law in Nevada. If you or your client are facing similar problems and have questions about this case, or any other issues related to public entity law or general liability, please contact Tony Garasi at (702) 258-6665 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
