Why File a Lawsuit?

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by the careless or reckless behavior of another, you have a right to receive compensation for your loss. Our civil justice system allows the little guy to take on even the most powerful corporations and insurance companies to demand accountability. This is your right!

We can help.

You Don’t Need to Bear the Costs Alone

A serious injury or illness can be extremely costly, in both financial and emotional terms. There are medical bills and other expenses to pay, which is often made more difficult by a loss of income. In the case of death or disability, the loss of income may be permanent. There is also an incalculable emotional cost in pain, suffering, loss of companionship, and grief. You and your family do not have to bear these costs alone. With the help of a good personal injury lawyer, a civil lawsuit can really help you get back on your feet.

We Make the Process of Filing a Lawsuit Easy

We know that when you are facing a serious injury or the loss of a loved one, taking legal action may sound daunting or overwhelming. Often, it takes all your energy just to cope with the trauma of the situation. You may feel that it is somehow inappropriate or wrong to sue. Or you may be worried that you cannot afford to pay for an attorney. The attorneys at the Galiher firm understand what you are going through. We will help you through the process. You will never have to pay us even a penny out of pocket. If we do not recover anything, there is no fee.

“I want to thank you and your entire team for being our advocates. The settlement was beyond expectation, even when your long-standing reputation is considered. That said, it is the professionalism and expertise delivered with so much consideration and kindness that I truly appreciate and respect.

I will always be grateful for the time and care everyone put into our case and the peace of mind it provided my husband when he needed it the most.”
