Chase Brockstedt has dedicated his career to representing individuals who have been injured through no fault of their own and are seeking fair compensation. He has substantial experience in navigating the complicated world of insurance to ensure that his client’s medical expenses and lost wages are paid on time and to recover damages for pain and suffering or permanent injuries. Chase’s past successes included serving as Class Counsel and a member of the Steering Committee in the Bradley/Beebe pediatric sex abuse class action case which resolved for an unprecedented $123 million, recovering a $13 million verdict in Bailey v. Beebe Medical Center, a nursing home negligence case, and several multi-million dollar settlements in motor vehicle accidents and nursing home abuse cases. Although he recently resolved a wrongful death trucking case for $2.25 million, he works just as diligently and successfully in cases where the damages are smaller.
In addition to his injury and wrongful death trial practice, Chase has a thriving business and commercial law practice, which includes land use matters, including the representation of developers, builders, buyers and sellers in various contexts. The breadth of his versatility is best exemplified by a $725,000 settlement in a United States District Court case against Sussex County Council as a result of their unlawful denial of a conditional use permit, and a victory in the Court of Chancery commercial action All Pro Maids v. Mama’s Maids, a business dispute arising out of an employment agreement which was affirmed on appeal to the Delaware Supreme Court.
Chase was born and raised in central and southern Delaware, graduated from Dover High School and obtained an undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He graduated from Widener University School of Law in 1999. While in law school, Mr. Brockstedt served as Judicial Extern to the Honorable Richard S. Gebelien of the Delaware Superior Court. He then served as Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Richard R. Cooch, Resident Judge for the Superior Court of New Castle County, for the 1999-2000 term.
Chase is admitted to the Supreme Court of the United States, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware and the Delaware State Bar. He is a member of the American Bar and Delaware State Bar Associations, The American Association of Justice and is a Board of Governor and immediate past President of the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association.
