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.

Caddell Reynolds. Make the right call!

I recently had to make to difficult choice to file Bankruptcy due to a life-changing heart condition at the peak of my career. It’s not an easy choice to make when you’ve managed a finance company for a living, and yet it became imperative for my survival and wellness. With horrible regret, I visited Caddell Reynolds for my first consultation. I think in a short while I knew I was on the right track. They say first impression is key, and I was placed at ease with the incredibly empathetic front desk coordinator, Yolanda. She knew I was nervous, and helped me feel welcome and informed. My attorney, was engaged in my journey, understood my pain and immediately addressed my worries with a solution. My attorney truly has treated my like an individual case, caring about my needs and why I was having to file. I had a team of excellent staff that provided a professional experience with a wonderful attitude and work ethic that has made a life changing event bearable. Brooke whom assisted my attorney is amazing and personable very attentive. The little time I had to spend in the office was great. I couldn’t recommend the Caddell Reynolds team enough- the team starts at the door with the incredible Yolanda to greet you when you walk in!
