A serious personal injury can derail your life. Mounting medical bills, loss of wages and future care can be devastating both emotionally and financially. At Harris Law, we understand that recovery can be jeopardized if you can’t afford treatment or care, and the last thing you need to worry about is how to pay your bills when you can’t work. We can help you evaluate your options and pursue compensation and benefits payment.
Accidents and Personal Injury at Work
U.S. employers and their employees rely on our dependable workers’ compensation system to resolve disputes about vocational injuries and disease and to provide for related worker needs.
Workers’ compensation benefits are commonly awarded for work-related injury, illness and death, helping to meet the needs of injured workers and their families even when faced with overwhelming situations.
Navigating the worker’s compensation claim process is tedious and, if not handled properly, can lead to potential denial of payment.
If you or your family member is injured or becomes sick in the course of employment, an experienced and skilled workers’ compensation lawyer at Harris Law can assess your potential workers’ compensation claim.

Breach of Contract
A single breach of contract can result in the awarding of various types of remedies.
Depending on the nature of the breach, you may have several different remedies available to you. The remedies may be subject to reduction or modification if the injured party has also breached the contract.
A competent lawyer can help you understand which types of remedies are available to you under legal or equitable principals. Moreover, the law of contracts often can change from region to region, as well as over time. Working with an attorney at Harris Law can help ensure that you are updated with all the changes that are made in contracts law.

Nothing hurts more than losing a loved one. Unfortunately, many wrongful deaths occur as a result of negligence. If you’ve lost someone due to negligence, you may be able to recover damages through a wrongful death suit.
Wrongful death suits can recover the expenses associated with the wrongful death itself, in addition to any loss of salary, benefits, pain and suffering, companionship and other factors that will increase the burden on the family already suffering a grave loss.
Since wrongful death suits differ greatly, experts at the Harris Law offices can help you determine what compensation each family member can seek based on the relationship between the wrongful death victim and the individual survivor.
Our firm has the resources and knowledge necessary to successfully litigate a wrongful death suit. While no amount of money can bring back your loved one, your family need not suffer financial losses because of someone else’s negligence.
