Here at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we are proud to announce our very own Ryan Harris 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 the ingenuity of counsel and conduct, as well as meet numerous other criteria.
Ryan 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, we represented a 19-year-old young lady who suffered severe injuries from a head-on collision.
Ryan is 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 our client.
However, through his investigation of the case, Ryan 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 last seconds before the accident. This was a key piece of evidence the jury relied upon in awarding the verdict.
This is 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. 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.
Congratulations to Ryan for a job well done!
