About
Brian Harris

Brian K. Harris is the managing partner of Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers based in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has practiced personal injury law cases since 2000. Throughout his career, he has been recognized for his success from his admission to the Muli-Million Dollar Advocates Forum to his Top 100 Lawyers in Las Vegas award.
 
How Brian became a lawyer. At the age of 13, Brian was taught by a successful lawyer. He was impressed by his ability to effectively communicate with the class and the manner in which he articulated the subject. He decided to pursue an education in the law. 

“I desired to represent individuals who were less fortunate.”

Brian’s path to personal injury law. Fresh out of law school, Brian passed the Utah State Bar and accepted a position as the Washington County Public Defender in St. George. He managed a large caseload and cut his teeth as a litigator. Unlike many young attorneys, he was given the opportunity to try cases to verdict quickly. 

Taking this experience to private practice, Brian joined a personal injury firm in Nevada in 2002. For two years, he gained experience representing personal injury clients. 

He had found his niche. 

Brian’s philosophy for personal injury law. For Brian, it is all about preparation. He approaches each case with strong negotiation skills and a readiness for trial no matter the case. He has earned his reputation as a tenacious litigator and negotiator. 

The origins of Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers. After gaining experience as a public defender and with a local personal injury firm, Brian knew it was time to hang his own shingle. In 2004, he founded Harris Schwartz. In 2008, he founded Harris & Harris Injury lawyers with partner and fellow personal injury lawyer, Heather Harris. 

Why did he strike out on his own? “It’s the American way – a desire to own my own business and helping others.”

The highlight of Brian’s workday. Brian enjoys working on each case and strategizing with the rest of the firm to find the right path forward. 

Brian in the community. In the legal community, Brian has been an active member of various organizations since he passed the bar and served on the board of governors for the Nevada Justice Association. Locally, Brian is involved in several organizations including Make-a-Wish, the Folded Flag Foundation, and PAWS, a nonprofit dog rescue. 

Brian’s proudest accomplishment. “Compensating clients who fall victim to unfortunate injuries as a result of someone else’s conduct.”

Brian outside the office. Brian enjoys spending time with his family, watching (and attending) Las Vegas Golden Knights hockey games, and playing golf. He is currently training for his first Spartan race and looks forward to many more.

What Is a Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney?

As you go about your daily routine, it’s likely you will come across scenarios where you could suffer an injury. Maybe you are grocery shopping, dining at your favorite restaurant, or driving in your car. A Las Vegas personal injury attorney represents those who have been injured because of another party’s carelessness, negligence, or willful disregard of others. These wrongful acts are more formally referred to as torts. When you suffer harm as a result of another party, you shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial burden which often accompanies an injury because of medical expenses and lost wages. A licensed personal injury attorney in Las Vegas can help you seek the compensation you deserve in civil court. Although personal injury attorneys deal with tort law, they often specialize in one or more areas. The following list is not exhaustive but includes three broad types of cases Las Vegas personal injury lawyers handle on a day-to-day basis.

Traffic Accident Injury Cases

Each year, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates more than six million traffic collisions are reported to law enforcement, including more than 35,000 fatal crashes, and about 2.5 million injuries. A skilled Las Vegas accident attorney can help investigate your accident and build a strong case against the defense to hold at-fault drivers accountable. Traffic accidents can include truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. When high speeds are involved, victims who are lucky enough to live through an accident, potentially face lifelong complications.

Premises Liability Injury Cases

In all 50 U.S. states, property owners have the legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their business and home. Although exact laws vary from state to state, when a property owner fails to uphold his legal obligation and someone suffers an injury, courts often find the owner liable for damages in civil court. Premises liability accidents include a wide variety of accidents based on location and the type of injury. Victims might get injured at a swimming pool, a theme park, on an elevator, at a shopping mall, and many other locations. The most common type of premises liability accident is a slip-and-fall injury or a trip-and-fall injury. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, besides traffic accidents, is unintentional falls.

Product Liability Injury Cases

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) records and maintains millions of complaints of injuries caused by defective products each year. A defective product might have a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a marketing defect, which occurs when companies don’t warn consumers of dangerous products or provide proper instructions. When a known or unknown defect causes injury to a consumer, courts can hold any party in the product’s chain of distribution liable for damages. The CPSC is concerned with all types of household items, sports equipment, toxic and flammable chemicals, toys, and much more, but they do not serve as a watchdog for the automotive industry or the pharmaceutical. Defective airbags and defective tires have been a common cause of injury or death, as well as dangerous drugs.
