Facts About Chase Lawsuit

On April 3, the plaintiff in the Chase Complaint, Stephen Chase, received a major boost when he was able to receive certification for compensation from the three named defendants in the case. This was after the court permitted the filing of an answer by Chase’s attorneys. This means that Chase can pursue the damages against Credit Card Company, Farmers and Payday Loan, collectively referred to as “the defendants.” An answer to this complaint is necessary because it allows Chase legal counsel to amend the complaint to correct errors and omissions made by attorneys who filed the original complaint.

Chase Lawsuit

When the complaint was filed, it was known as a “complaint for damages.” On April 3, the court approved the plaintiffs’ request for damages and directed that the case be transferred to a plaintiff for filing. There are cases where plaintiffs are permitted to seek damages directly from the defendant. In Chase’s case, the three named defendants decided not to dispute the case and agreed to enter into mediation. As part of the agreement, Chase was obligated to pay his lawyer $100 per month until the case was resolved.

The court found that Chase had a reasonable cause to file the complaint.

The three named defendants failed to provide any evidence to support their claim that they were not at fault. They simply stated that they did not admit liability. Chase was able to connect the dots that these statements in the answer were accurate given the circumstances of the case. The court found that the defendants violated their representations that they would not pursue any legal action against Chase and ordered him to pay his attorney fees. This case is likely to set a precedent in negligence actions and may increase the rights of plaintiffs.

While this case may be one of the first of its kind, Chase’s attorney, Robert Gage, told reporters that he had never seen a lawsuit quite like this one.

Gage indicated that Chase may be owed more than six figures, which he is hopeful will be covered by the insurance provider that is liable for damages. If not, Chase may be liable for punitive damages.

Chase’s lawyer, Robert Gage, told reporters that this is probably the largest financial judgment issued in history.

He also implied that the damages sought are substantial and could be quite high. However, he was unwilling to estimate an amount prior to going forward with the case. He also said that if the case does go to trial, it will likely be an expensive time for the plaintiff. He further implied that even though monetary damages have been won in the past, this is the first case in which the amount of damages has been determined by an insurance adjuster.

No settlement has been reached as of yet.

This is not surprising considering the importance of this case. It is also not a case that the jury will have to make a decision on. When determining damages, the jury will consider both the extent of the injuries suffered and the extent of the damage caused by the event. The judge will also take into account factors like the negligence of the defendant and any impact the event may have had on the plaintiff.
