Verdicts & Settlements

$1.15 Million: Car Accident

A high-speed, head-on collision grievously injured a young man in a collision. Stacking available insurance policies and advocating on the young man’s behalf, the professionals at Arnold & Smith, PLLC obtained the maximum available damages and settled the young man’s case out of court for $1.15 million.

$400,000: Civil Rights Claims

Two young women are detained by police officers over a bad parking job. One of the young women is placed in handcuffs and taken to jail, without being charged with a crime. The other woman is arrested and, while handcuffed, is thrown to the ground, sustaining serious injuries to her face and teeth. After years of in-court litigation against the police officers and the department that employed them, the attorneys at Arnold & Smith, PLLC settled the young women's cases for $400,000.

$280,000: Wrongful Death

A single-vehicle accident results in the tragic death of a teenage driver. The driver's speeding is blamed for the crash, but an investigation shows that roadway conditions played a role. Through years of in-court litigation, the attorneys at Arnold & Smith, PLLC, overcame a contractor's and a state agency's defenses, ultimately settling, on the eve of trial, for $280,000.

$255,000: Wrongful Death

A tragic interstate crash resulted in the deaths of two Arnold & Smith, PLLC clients. Because the at-fault driver had no assets, the only damages available to the families of the decedents came from the insurance coverage of the at-fault driver and underinsured motorist policies of persons involved in the crash. Before the families contacted Arnold & Smith, PLLC, the insurance companies offered to settle the case for $26,000.00 paid to each family. Through successful advocacy in the state trial courts and successful arguments before the state Court of Appeals and Supreme Court, the professionals at Arnold & Smith, PLLC, were able to secure $255,000.00 for the families—the maximum amount of available coverage, and five (5) times more than the families were offered before they came to Arnold & Smith.

★★★★★
Resonable expectations were set and the results far exceeded them. I was well informed, prepared and supported by Matt and his team. They provided comfort and confidence, as well as a great outcome. I can't possibly describe how grateful I truly am for what they have done for me. Matt was recommended to be by another trusted individual and I believe that was a blessing. Anthony
★★★★★
I can't say enough great things about Matthew Arnold and his team. I had a very complicated, high-conflict case which took a lot of time and effort on everyone's part, and I feel like my case was given the time and attention it required. Matt Arnold is a great attorney, and I would go as far as saying one of the best in Charlotte, if not the best. Bree is also amazing. Amber
