  • DiCaudo, Pitchford & Yoder represented an individual who was involved in a motor vehicle accident that occurred in Stark County, Ohio. The insurance company refused to offer any settlement on the claim and disputed liability of their insured. We immediately filed suit once the claim was denied and over a two year period of time fought the insurance company in court. After a three day trial the jury returned a verdict in favor of our client for $185,000. The client had the option to either accept the insurance company's decision that they were not liable or fight. They chose to fight and were awarded a substantial judgment.

  • DiCaudo, Pitchford & Yoder represented the heirs of a man who was injured in a construction accident. He was injured on the job and the family was told it was his fault. The family was not convinced and retained the services of our firm to investigate the claim and render an opinion on the validity of the company's conclusions. Over two months we gathered all of the information, retained the services of a structural engineer and made the determination that the construction company was not following protocol and was partially responsible for our clients death. We filed suit and the eve before trial settled the matter for $1.1 million dollars. This result was one of the firms most proud moments. We were able to give a family the closure that they desperately needed and the construction company finally took responsibility for their fault.

  • ​DiCaudo, Pitchford & Yoder were contacted by a past client and asked whether we would be interested in representing her mother who was hurt while in a nursing home. Nursing home cases are notoriously difficult to prove but we decided that after reviewing the medical records and the policies and procedures of the nursing home that we would take the case. Our client had been in the nursing home for rehabilitation and had fallen while attempting to use the bathroom. She was restricted from walking unaccompanied by a staff member and should not have been walking. She fractured her hip and six months later unfortunately passed. We filed suit and a jury returned a verdict for $900,000.

The firm of DiCaudo, Pitchford & Yoder filed suit and after a year of litigation resolved the matter for an undisclosed amount.

He was visiting a friend and went up to the top floor where he proceeded to exit the elevator and slipped on a wet floor. He sustained a full tear in his rotator cuff and was not able to work for over a year. He lost his job and was required to move in with his parents. He had gone to another law firm to handle the case and he did not feel the firm had his best interests at heart. He called the law firm of DiCaudo, Pitchford & Yoder who decided to help.

Unfortunately, he had suffered from degenerative disc disease prior to the accident and the insurance company was not willing to settle the case for the value we believed it was worth. Our client was restricted from lifting anything over 25 pounds. This was problematic because he had two young twin daughters. We opted to have the case heard to a jury who after a three trial awarded our client four times the amount that the insurance company had offered.
