As a law firm dedicated to personal injury law, we have several different practice areas that we specialize in. Below is a list of the types of personal injury law that our attorneys have experience in.
Personal injury law is an area of legal practice that deals with the harm done to an individual or a group of individuals due to the negligence of another party. If you can prove the negligence of the at-fault party, you may be able to receive compensation for the damages received.
However, personal injury law cases are very complicated, which is why hiring a personal injury attorney will significantly help you and your case. For your benefit, we offer free consultations at our Des Moines office to help you prepare your case with the highest chance of success.
As you review this list of our practice areas, we encourage you to visit the topic page to learn more about the topic.
As one of the most complicated practice areas of personal injury law, dangerous prescription drug lawsuits often take years to resolve. Not only that, but due to the size and resources that pharmaceutical companies hold, it is usually impossible to file a successful lawsuit alone.
At Galligan Law, we have access to a network of attorneys that work together to represent hundreds of clients. So, if you or a loved one have been affected by dangerous drugs, give us a call.
Product defects can occur at any point in the manufacturing process. Some defects are minor, but others, especially with medical devices, can lead to significant injuries and even death. This practice area is also referred to as product liability.
If you or a loved one have been hurt by a defective product or medical device, you may be entitled to compensation.
Medical providers have a duty and standard of care they must provide to their patients. Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional causes harm to a patient due to negligence or omission. Victims of medical malpractice often experience pain and suffering, along with serious damage to their health.
We have extensive experience with medical malpractice claims and defending patient’s rights. Let us help you fight for the compensation you need to overcome the effects of medical negligence.
Car accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases. We also have experience with trucking accident cases, which can be even more damaging. Cases of these types typically involve jumping through many hoops in order to get help from insurance companies. From our years of experience, we know how to help you avoid the pitfalls that can cause you to lose compensation.
If you or a loved one has moved into a nursing home, you will expect a certain level of care to be met. However, when care violations occur, what does that mean for you? Because the providers at these facilities have a duty to care for you or your loved one, you may deserve compensation for the harm caused.
Nursing home neglect and abuse also increases the risk of wrongful death. These kinds of personal injury claims are tragic and serious. If you or a loved one has suffered due to nursing home abuse, contact our experienced personal injury lawyers.
Getting injured can cause many problems depending on the injury. You may lose time and wages from your work. You may need physical therapy, hospital care, surgery, and supportive care, which can be expensive, to say the least.
If you have been injured due to the fault of another, you deserve compensation. Our attorneys have many years of experience in this field and can help your case succeed.
One of the most tragic things that we individuals deal with is the wrongful death of a loved one. There is no way to replace someone once lost. However, seeking compensation for the wrongful death of another can help you and your family adjust.
There are many causes for wrongful death, and they can be related to other areas of personal injury law. Wrongful death lawsuits are also far more complicated and layered than cases involving non-lethal injuries. Iowa has specialized laws around wrongful death that add another layer of complexity.
In order to navigate a wrongful death case successfully, you will need an attorney who has both experience and knowledge. Contact us, and we can help you start your building your case.
