Catastrophic Injury

We have worked extensively with victims of catastrophic injuries and recovered tens of millions of dollars in non-asbestos personal injury and wrongful death suits, including significant class-action settlements. Although almost all cases are settled out of court, our firm has been very successful for our clients in the courtroom.

Your Medical Care and Treatment Come First

We recognize that your medical care comes before all else. Through our legal work, we consult with the foremost doctors and remain abreast of the latest research and medical treatments. We provide our clients with as much information as possible about their medical care. While our information is not a substitute for medical advice, we recognize how important it is for our clients to have as much medical information as possible, so you and your doctor can make the best choice for your care and treatment.

Your Case is Personal to Us

Every case is unique. We will handle your case individually and give you our personal attention. An attorney will meet with you as soon as possible to learn about your circumstances and answer your questions. Our team will begin working on your case immediately to obtain the best result for you. We are always available to respond to your questions and concerns, and we really do listen.

We Thoroughly Prepare Each Case to Maximize Your Recovery

We are able to obtain the best results for you because we thoroughly prepare our cases. Our track record proves it: Opponents know that our firm has taken over 50 cases to verdict and has obtained multi-million dollar recoveries. Because of this, we are able to obtain the maximum compensation for our clients.

We Value Our Reputation for Honesty and Integrity

Throughout the decades we have been involved in litigation, we have worked to develop and maintain our reputation for honesty and integrity. Judges respect our commitment to our clients and our resourcefulness and determination in the courtroom. Even our adversaries acknowledge our professionalism and commitment. Judges and other lawyers alike know that they can rely on our word with regard to any aspect of our cases.

The Galiher law firm works tirelessly to obtain the best results for its clients in every case. Through our many years of practice, however, we understand that every case is unique and any recovery is based on the particular facts of the case at hand. Prior results cannot guarantee the results in future cases.
