After another local PI firm turned down the case, Mr. Harris pursued justice for a five-year-old boy who suffered a traumatic brain injury. The boy fell 20 feet from an escalator in a sporting goods store. Mr. Harris discovered the escalator had caused many other injuries to children, and was able to collect compensation through mediation. The store also amended the escalators in 25 of their franchises.
An 84-year-old man was injured in a hotel parking lot while pushing his wheelchair-bound wife. The wheelchair ramps were closed by the maintenance staff, and the alternate route into the building was uneven and potholed. Mr. Harris discovered the hotel had committed many Americans with Disabilities Act violations in addition to many violations of their own safety policies. After helping the victim collect hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution, Mr. Harris believes the outcome prompted the hotel chain to improve safety measures nationwide.
Mr. Harris was able to collect a significant settlement for a teenage boy whose radiologist missed a large tumor while performing an exam following an unrelated injury. With the help of experts, Mr. Harris was able to prove that the radiologist was negligent, and that his negligence resulted in devastating lifelong ramifications.
An 87-year-old man recovering from knee replacement surgery in a nursing home died after suffering cardiac arrest. The facility failed to monitor his low-level diabetes, and he had been showing clear signs of medical and cognitive decline that the staff failed to act upon. After enlisting the help of a nurse who had managed a chain of rehab centers, Mr. Harris was able to prove the facility was liable. He collected hundreds of thousands in compensation for the victim's surviving children.
Mr. Harris collected $1.4 million for a father and son (age two at the time) who were injured when their van was rear-ended by a commercial truck.
