A History of Positive Case Results
Handling Difficult Cases
Helping a Young Victim of Unsafe Premises
After another local personal injury 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.
Justice for a Client Injured Due to ADA Violations
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 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.
Restitution for a Young Medical Malpractice Victim
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.
Protecting an Elderly Victim's Rights
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.
Justice for an Injured Father and Toddler
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. The family had gone bankrupt by the time they hired Mr. Harris to file a civil suit on their behalf. With the help of experts in medicine and the trucking industry, Mr. Harris was able to show the lifelong consequences of the collision.
Auto Accident Case
Mr. Harris is known to take on cases other firms find too difficult and obtain satisfactory results. In a case where the car accident victim had prior medical issues, Mr. Harris recovered full policy limits for the client.
Business Liability Case
Improper vehicle inspections can have catastrophic consequences. One particular client was seriously injured after the brakes failed on his dump truck and he deliberately exited the roadway, rolling the vehicle, in order to avoid entering a busy intersection. This hotly contested case was resolved through mediation proceedings just a week before trial.
Premises Liability Case
In another case, Mr. Harris fought and won a tedious legal battle spanning two years after an employee seriously injured her lower back working for her own business. A third-party business owner was found to be responsible. Although the insurance company tried repeatedly to diminish her symptoms, we were able to achieve fair compensation.
