Tort Recovery Against Nevada

As lead counsel, Michael Caddell and John Scofield settled a tort claim recovery against the State of Nevada. 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 113 mph 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 successfully developed a section 1983 claim against the state and recovered a favorable settlement for its clients.
