Caddell Reynolds Wins $21.7 Million Class Action

July 24th, 2018 Class Actions

The law firm of Caddell Reynolds recently helped secure a $21.7 Million judgment from State Farm Insurance regarding payment and recovery practices not allowed under Arkansas state law.

The insurance company agreed to settle claims with approximately 8,700 class members in an action related to insurance coverage for medical payments.

Court documents indicate State Farm would pay for medical bills related to car accidents and then—if the policyholder later settles with an at-fault driver—take back the money paid. While certain exceptions exist, Arkansas law does not allow for such practices, known as subrogation.

Bill Horton of Caddell Reynolds states: “We were able to demonstrate that State Farm was guilty of basically taking $22 million from their insured, and they fought us over it.” State Farm would send clients letters saying—according to policy—the company is allowed to claim the money.

According to Horton, State Farm customers did not realize that the company was not entitled to that money under the law. Horton said State Farm had recovered money from customers for decades when it should not have.

Typically I don’t leave much feedback for services rendered, however, in this particular case I think everyone needs to know about my experience with Caddell Reynolds. I have used various attorneys throughout my adulthood for various reasons. Recently I retained an attorney, Joel Hargis, from this firm. If anybody is just satisfied with meeting expectations you need to consider this firm for exceeding expectations. This attorney and his staff far exceeded any expectations I had at the onset. Tammy was amazing in making me feel comfortable with the various entries and documentation needed. Mandy goes above and beyond in being responsive to questions and needs. An example which has never happened to me before with any law firm, was I sent an email late Saturday night requesting an appointment and information and on Sunday I got a response back. What law firm does that? Never in my experience has that ever happened to me. Joel is absolutely amazing. He doesn’t circumvent the law he explains the law that any novice can understand. He left no doubt in my mind of his knowledge, his experience, his attention to detail, and his overall diligence in making sure that I was going to be represented in a manner that my confidence level in my particular case went up 150%. I very much recommend this law firm and if the rest of their legal team is as good as the one I retained within this firm they will go far in servicing any client that needs representation. Amazing and astounding don’t really define or describe how I feel. One word comes to mind, indescribable!
