$2.65 Million Dollar Median Cable Barrier Crash Settlement


A drunk driver crashed into our client causing severe injuries and destroyed the vehicle.  We used our “secret sauce” to convince the drunk driver’s insurance company to pay the policy limits for the claim.

Next, we filed a claim with our client’s insurance however they refused to pay the policy limits for both bodily injury and property damage.  We immediately filed a lawsuit and they paid the full policy limits shortly thereafter.


Chris Hart Law’s client was struck head on by a driver running from the police and operating a motor vehicle with no driver’s license in a stolen vehicle.  Our client was severely injured and went through several months of physical therapy and rehabilitation.  Chris Hart Law was successful in obtaining in excess of a quarter of million dollars.  We always strive for a tradition of excellence. 


$1 Million settlement

Chris Hart Law used several tried-and-true strategies to secure a $1 Million Dollar apartment shooting settlement in South Carolina.  We were “gobsmacked” at the unspeakable amount of crime that occurred on the apartment complex every day.  The FOIA request for crime reports soared into several thousands of dollars in costs and several months to produce the reports.  No depositions or mediations were necessary after Chris Hart Law presented the absentee apartment owners with the risks associated with a long protracted legal battle.

The out of state owners never visited the apartment complex and never implemented any security measures to protect the tenants or visitors.  They siphoned the profits from the apartment complex but refused to install basic lighting, security gates, or armed security. It was an honor to bring justice to our clients and hold the out of state apartment owners accountable.
