Here are a few of the non-confidential verdicts and settlements Chappell Smith & Arden’s litigation team has achieved for our clients:

$875,000.00 Settlement

Plaintiff was struck head-on by a cable company truck in the mountains of South Carolina causing serious and permanent injuries. In addition to negligent hiring claims, we pursued claims of negligent maintenance of the vehicle.


$550,000 Settlement

We represented a woman injured in a T-bone collision with an 18-wheeler on Highway 378. We quickly retained several damages experts, including a vocational expert, life care planner, and economist, and resolved this case without having to file a lawsuit.

$1,284,000 Settlement

Mark Chappell and Hugh McAngus, members of Chappell, Smith & Arden’s litigation team, represented a husband and wife injured while attempting to enter I-26 in Orangeburg County, South Carolina when they were involved in a multiple car collision, spun into the interstate, and struck by a tractor trailer.


$500,000 Settlement

Mark Chappell and Hugh McAngus represented a woman and her granddaughter who were t-boned by a logging truck in the middle of an intersection. We pursued claims against the driver and the logging truck for negligent hiring, retention, and training.


Confidential Settlement

We represented a longtime truck driver whose vehicle was struck from the rear by a loaded refrigerated tractor trailer hauling double trailers. Our client suffered severe neck injuries requiring surgery and was unable to return to his occupation. Through depositions, documents, and with the use of an accident reconstructionist we were able to counter the defendant’s assertion that a brake failure and not the defendant’s negligence was the cause of the collision. The case was settled for a confidential amount.


Confidential Settlement

We represented a woman who suffered significant injuries when the 18-wheeler she was operating was struck from the rear by another tractor trailer driver who dozed off at the wheel. This suit was resolved before trial for a confidential amount.
