Has a car accident caused you or a member of your family to suffer a serious injury? Have you lost a loved one due to wrongful death in a car accident?
If the accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, you have the right to take action. You have the right to full compensation from that driver's insurance company. Unfortunately, the insurance company may not be willing to provide it without a fight.
At the law firm of Caddell & Chapman, you will find attorneys who take pride in going up against insurance companies in significant accident cases. Our focus is on challenging cases that require extensive knowledge in order to resolve. Winning those cases is what we have built our reputation on.
We Can Help, No Matter What the Cause
Negligence comes in many forms. It can involve a driver talking on a cell phone or sending text messages instead of paying attention to the road. It can involve drunk driving. It can involve speeding and running stop signs.
In fact, the negligence that caused the car accident may have taken place much earlier than the accident itself. Sometimes, it is the manufacturer of the car or the manufacturer of parts of the car that is responsible. Our lawyers can handle cases involving defective cars and car parts.
In fact, we can handle all types of motor vehicle accident cases, including:
- Car accidents
- SUV accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Accidents involving pedestrians hit by cars
- Accidents involving bicyclists hit by cars
Aggressive, Creative Representation
Caddell & Chapman represents families of the catastrophically injured or killed in automobile collisions that involve claims against other drivers. For example, in McKinney, Texas (North of Dallas), a woman and her two young children were injured in a sequence of rear end collisions. In the accident, the family's two-year-old suffered an injury at the base of his brain which ultimately required surgery. The firm represented the family in a claim against three drivers and obtained a favorable settlement that was approved by the district court in Collin County, Texas.
In addition to their successes against insurance companies, and major corporations, Caddell & Chapman has demonstrated its willingness to work for the underdog through its representation of families in litigation against the government. In 2008, Caddell & Chapman obtained the largest tort claim recovery against the State of Nevada in its history. The lawsuit arose from a multiple fatality accident near Las Vegas involving a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper. The trooper was driving his patrol car at 113mph without activation of emergency lights and siren. The patrol car struck a sedan occupied by five undocumented Mexican residents, which killed four and injured the fifth. In contrast to other lawyers who settled several of the wrongful death claims for the liability limits under Nevada law of $50.000 per claim, the firm developed a section 1983 claim against the state with unparalleled success. As noted by the Las Vegas Review Journal, the firm's settlement is the largest ever made by the state to settle a lawsuit over a negligent action by an employee.
Often, Caddell & Chapman's investigation of automobile collisions leads the firm to recommend that their clients pursue automobile manufacturers as a cause of the accident and/or for failing to design their vehicles for and to protect passengers from the forces of a foreseeable collision. The possibility of pursuing a products liability claim depends upon the unique facts of each accident, and Caddell & Chapman has decades of experience in the investigation and evaluation of potential products liability claims.
Our goal is getting results in complex cases. We are willing to be aggressive and creative to achieve that goal.
