Ryan Harris, of Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, will be presented with an Outstanding Trial Lawyer award by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego (CASD) at its annual Awards and Installations Dinner to be held Oct. 28 at the U.S. Grant Hotel.
The award is given to San Diego based attorneys who obtain a significant civil jury trial victory. To win the award, attorneys must demonstrate ingenuity of counsel and conduct, as well as meet
numerous other criteria.
Harris will receive the award for his work in obtaining a $13.3 million jury trial verdict in an auto accident case in 2009. At trial, Harris represented a 19 year old young lady who suffered severe injuries from a head-on collision.
“We have a long history of helping clients receive what they deserve,” said Harris. “I am honored that not only did our diligence pay off for our client, but the hours of hard work our team dedicated to this case will be recognized as well.”
The insurance company for the negligent driver initially refused to offer any money to settle the case because the driver had been rear-ended by another vehicle before colliding with Harris’ client.
However, through his investigation of the case, Harris was able to obtain the black box data recorder from the driver’s Chevy Silverado. The data recorder demonstrated the driver had been braking aggressively in the last seconds before the accident. This was a key
piece of evidence the jury relied upon in awarding the verdict.
“This is obviously a significant victory; however, all of our firm’s cases are important, and this is only one example of the hundreds of successful results we have obtained for clients,” said Harris. “This prestigious award, coupled with our firm’s proven track record, should provide clients confidence our firm is equipped to take on their case, and that we will deliver restitution and peace of mind.”
