When you approach us, we do not think it is unusual for you to feel scared or intimidated by the legal process. Retaining a law firm to protect your interests is no small matter.

Working with us, you will know exactly where your case stands. We have built our firm on the solid foundation of our relationships with our clients. Your case will be no different.

Our approach means you can depend on our judgment from your very first meeting with us. We do not just accept representation on a given matter for the sake of doing more legal work. Instead, we carefully work with you to evaluate your case.

How Do We Evaluate Your Case?

Evaluating your case is the first step of the larger medical malpractice legal process. During this first phase, we want to determine if pursuing a lawsuit really does serve your best interests.

We answer that question in part by determining if the cost of the case is outweighed by the benefits. Often this question can be answered in large part by whether the simple expenses of the case can be recovered from the defendants.

There is more, however, to be considered than the finances. Your emotional and mental well-being and that of your family and loved ones are also considerations. A lawsuit can be a long journey. You do not want to embark on that journey underprepared.

What Happens Next?

If we can advise you that a lawsuit is in your best interest, we can then begin representing you. Representing you means you can depend on us to deal with any insurance companies or opposing attorneys.

We can also start then on building your case. We do this by gathering evidence through a variety of methods made available to us under the law. This phase is called discovery.

During discovery, we also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. We keep you up to date on any and all offers. We also help you understand the offers and whether they are good or not.

If negotiations do not best protect your rights, we are well-positioned to represent you at trial. Galligan Reid PC has tried cases successfully against some of the nation's largest private interests, often in highly visible disputes.
