In founding Zaner Harden Law, we had the goal of providing the most personalized of representation to the clients we welcome into the ZHL family.

At the end of the day, legal talent blended with knowledge, creativity and willpower wins cases.

Focusing our efforts on Colorado, we have helped our injured clients recover tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts.  On our ZH News page, you can learn more about the following recent verdicts we have obtained in Colorado for our clients.

Verdict

$2,500,000

The family lost their son when a suspected drunk driver turned left in front of him. Despite the Police testifying at trial that the other driver did nothing wrong in making the left hand turn, the jury sent a message that drunk drivers that flee the scene will be held accountable.

Settlement

$1,850,000

We obtained the full policy limits for our client who was riding a bicycle when he was hit by a distracted driver. We used our patented pre-suit techniques to force the insurance companies into paying the full amount of benefits without having to file a lawsuit. Our client suffered fractures to his arms and legs.

Verdict

$1,700,000

We obtained a 1.7 million dollar verdict against Hunting Titan and Zurich Insurance. Hunting Titan’s truck driver ran over our client in a parking lot while on his cell phone. The Defendant blamed our client for parking too close. The crash fractured our client’s pelvis in two places, causing extreme pain and months of rehabilitation. Prior to trial, the Defendant offered $350,000.00. By highlighting the recklessness of driving distracted, and compassionately and emotionally telling the story of our client, we achieved a heroic victory wherein the jury found the Defendants entirely at fault.

Settlement

$1,500,000

We obtained a 1.5 million dollar settlement prior to trial for our client in Castle Rock who suffered a traumatic brain injury after being knocked off his bicycle. Given our track record of repeatedly beating the insurance companies, both State Farm and Liberty Mutual paid the maximum amount of the policies allowing our client to avoid trial.

Settlement

$500,000

Verdict

$500,000+

We obtained over a half a million dollar verdict against our client’s own insurance company, American Family Insurance. Our client, a hardworking Colorado native who spent his life repairing HVACs, was offered zero by his own insurance company after a negligent driver smashed into his car and left his shoulder and his career in pieces.

Verdict
