Fighting for You: A message from attorney Adam Ganz
Adam has been involved in the successful resolution of numerous personal injury settlements in excess of one hundred million dollars, and jury verdicts in excess of fifty million dollars for over 11 years. Here is a special video message to anyone thinking about retaining the services of Ganz & Hauf.
This case was a matter where a referring attorney associated Ganz & Hauf to litigate the matter. The Plaintiff was rear-ended by a taxi and then subsequently, the taxi to impact the Plaintiff again, this time pushing the Plaintiff’s vehicle into the car in front of it.
The Plaintiff was hit by a Yellow Cab driver in 2006. She sustained life-altering injuries to her neck, back and shoulder as a result of the crash, and required surgery to her shoulder and neck. As is the goal of all the cases we handle, the surgeries she underwent were extremely successful and the majority of the award was for the payment of her medical expenses.
A Message from the client
Ganz & Hauf obtained an impressive Arbitration decision in a case where our client was rear-ended. The person causing the crash took responsibility, but, as is often the case in our community, the person who caused the crash did not have enough insurance to compensate our client for his injuries.
The firm has recently obtained, after five years of litigation and a seven day jury trial, a judgment for a client against the brother of professional poker player Eli Elezra. Besides poker, Eli Elezra is “a multi-million dollar businessperson with several successful ventures on the Las Vegas strip”.
While the firm is content with the judgment, we will not be satisfied until our client obtains financial stability and the Defendant pays the judgment against him. As discussed later in this Newsletter, NEVER assume the person who hits you has enough insurance to cover your injuries; always make sure to have enough of your own insurance to cover yourself. If you need an analysis of your uninsured or underinsured coverage, call our office for a free consultation.
After a challenging two week jury trial, Ganz & Hauf has obtained a settlement for one of its clients that will provide her comfort and supportive care for the rest of her life. The firm recently settled the matter, just before closing arguments, and after two weeks in trial, insuring that the client will have enough money for future needs as well as financial stability.
This particular settlement was obtained from two different sources for over $1,000,000 above the Defendants’ insurance policy limits. Often times, insurance companies take it upon themselves to deny claims, thereby, allowing Ganz & Hauf to exceed the offending parties’ policy limits of insurance. Ganz & Hauf has settled millions of dollars in claims that have exceeded insurance policy limits. While this case is not representative of everyone’s case, and each case needs to be valued separately and distinctly, understand that the firm is here to insure that their clients get the maximum value for their claims.
Ganz & Hauf, in conjunction with Vannah & Vannah, obtained a settlement at mediation for a client who was severely injured when a 18-wheeler pulled out in front of him on the highway.
In March, 2006, following a four day trial, Ganz & Hauf obtained a jury verdict on behalf of a client injured while shopping at Walmart, when she was struck by a pallet of boxes pushed into her by a Walmart employee.
Ganz & Hauf, in conjunction with the law firm of Vannah & Vannah, obtained a jury verdict on behalf of their client, in July, 2006. The client was injured when a vehicle blew a red light, causing him to t-bone the vehicle.
In January, 2008, Ganz & Hauf obtained a settlement for their client, who was injured when her vehicle was hit and dragged by a semi-tuck.
Ganz & Hauf was retained in May, 2009 as trial counsel for this client. With the trial just two weeks away, Ganz & Hauf was able to prepare and win a jury verdict for the client, who had been injured in a car accident.
In this August, 2010, insurance bad faith case, this Ganz & Hauf client obtained a total settlement from multiple sources. The client was injured in a motor vehicle accident, and quickly settled with the person that caused the accident. He then made a claim against his underinsured motorist carriers, who refused to fairly evaluate his serious injuries, or pay his claim.
