How Experienced Is Our Firm In Handling Personal Injury Cases?
What Types Of Personal Injury Cases Do Gallivan & Gallivan Handle?
Gallivan & Gallivan handle a variety of different personal injury cases. The majority of the cases are motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice and nursing home neglect and abuse cases that involve people who have suffered bedsores, falls or physical or sexual abuse at nursing homes. They can be broken down a little bit further, but those are the main areas of practice here at the firm.
What Interested Thomas Gallivan In Practicing This Area Of Law?
A few things interested him in practicing personal injury law. Number one, he's always been interested in trials. Many personal injury cases go to trial if they don't settle. Before he was a lawyer, he was interested in books and movies about trials. The second thing that has drawn him towards this area of practice is the fact that he gets to deal with and help people on a day-to-day basis. He can see the impact that it has on a client, which isn't always the case in other areas of law.
What Sets Gallivan & Gallivan Apart In Handling Personal Injury Cases?
It is really the individual attention that the clients are going to get. Gallivan & Gallivan is a relatively small practice. You're going to speak either with Thomas Gallivan directly or a handful of attorneys and paralegals who are all going to be on the same page regarding your case. Gallivan & Gallivan is not a mill. This is not a place where you're going to call, and it’s a different person every time. We're very responsive to client requests regarding the status of cases, and we really operate as a team. We are in this together trying to help clients through a difficult period in their lives.
How Do Personal Injury Attorneys Receive Payment At Gallivan & Gallivan?
In personal injury matters, there is no upfront fee from our firm. Any costs associated with pursuing the case, including court costs, depositions and experts, are paid by Gallivan & Gallivan. That's the cost of us doing business. We never ask clients to reimburse that money, whether there is a recovery or not. If there is a recovery, we then get paid out of the settlement proceeds. In most instances, that fee is the standard 33-1/3 percent. In medical malpractice cases, it is a sliding scale: that is the lesser percentage that's set by statute. But under no circumstances are any of our clients out-of-pocket for any fees.
