Jeffrey Harris has experiences which help him understand your injuries and how to deal with them.

The Harris Firm has been in existence for more than 30 years, and Jeffrey Harris has been around the firm and the practice of workers’ compensation for nearly his entire life. This experience has helped Mr. Harris understand the needs of injured workers, and the steps necessary to provide the best assistance for those injured at work. Mr. Harris began aggressively preparing for a career in workers; compensation while in law school at the University of Cincinnati. As a law student, Mr. Harris began working at The Harris Firm. Quickly recognizing that that the practice of workers’ compensation depends almost as much on medical issues as legal ones, Mr. Harris spent a significant amount of time with medical professionals during his time in law school. This included studying with physicians at the University of Cincinnati’s Department of Occupational Medicine, as well as learning with other physicians around the Cincinnati area. As a result, Mr. Harris gained a far better understanding of medical issues than an attorney would acquire solely by attending law school. His experiences provided him with skills that help him in evaluating medical issues and dealing with doctors that are common in workers compensation claims.

Mr. Harris understands how important medical issues can be to the practice of law. As such, while he was still in law school, Mr. Harris decided that the opportunity to learn medical basics should be presented to other law students. Consequently, Mr. Harris took the unprecedented step of designing a course for the University of Cincinnati Law School which aimed to help future attorneys understand how to deal with medical issues. The result of Mr. Harris’ endeavors was a course entitled “The Interaction of Medicine and Law.” The course was designed by Mr. Harris, and provided to students during his final year of law school. The course focused on the understanding medical issues, including those that injured workers face in the legal system.

Mr. Harris’s involvement with medical-legal issues has continued throughout his practice. He regularly gives lectures to medical students and residents on medical issues common in the field of workers’ compensation. Mr. Harris has even previously been honored with a position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Cincinnati’s Department of Occupational Medicine. Over the years Mr. Harris has worked with physicians in the Department of Occupational Medicine on numerous occasions to help medical professionals gain a better understanding of the workers’ compensation system.
