Our Mesothelioma Attorneys
Over 30 Years of Experience Handling Mesothelioma Cases.
For more than 30 years, the attorneys at the Galiher Law Firm have achieved very favorable results for their clients in asbestos cases and in other personal injury cases. In the asbestos field alone, our firm has recovered over $600 million for our clients. We have also recovered tens of millions of dollars for our clients in other personal injury cases.
We have handled cases for clients who live in every corner of the United States. We have traveled to more than 40 states and several foreign countries to work with our asbestos clients to ensure that we achieve the best result possible for them. Many of our clients have worked in shipyards or on Navy ships. We are particularly experienced in handling cases involving ship board exposure and have obtained outstanding results for these clients. We work with marine engineers and conduct research in the US Naval Archives to show how these clients were exposed to asbestos throughout their work and naval service.
Our National Presence
From the very start of the asbestos litigations, the Galiher Law Firm has made its mark on the national scene. In 1978, Attorney Gary Galiher filed one of the first asbestos lawsuits on behalf of an electrician who had contracted mesothelioma as a result of his exposure to asbestos at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. We continue to work with other outstanding plaintiff law firms from around the United States on asbestos and mesothelioma cases.
Significant Results at Trial and in Settlements
We work diligently for our clients to attain the best results possible, and we believe our trial verdicts and settlements reflect that substantial effort. Our most recent asbestos trials resulted in very favorable verdicts. One verdict was for $9.8 million for a Pearl Harbor worker and other was for $5.3 million for an industrial worker. Each case is unique. The results in any one case depend on the specific facts in that case. So while results in one case cannot be applied in another, rest assured that the Galiher Law Firm works tirelessly for all its clients to obtain the best possible results.
When we have been successful at trial, the opposing side often appeals the case in an effort to overturn our verdict. But we have an outstanding record in such cases. In our asbestos cases, the Galiher Law Firm has won every significant issue taken up on appeal.
One of our most significant cases involved our uncovering a massive fraud by one of the asbestos defendants. By helping to reveal this fraud, we were able, along with other national law firms, to negotiate a $400 million settlement with Travelers Insurance Companies for thousands of asbestos claimants.
Aggressive and Resourceful
The Galiher Law Firm has many resources that it has developed during its 30 years in the asbestos litigation. This includes extensive information about asbestos products, the diseases caused by asbestos, and the liability of the companies who manufactured and sold these products. All of these unique resources enable us to put together the strongest possible case for our clients.
We also have a well-earned reputation for aggressively pursuing personal injury actions against some of the largest corporations in America. We strive to hold these companies accountable for putting corporate earnings ahead of the health and safety of workers and consumers.
In each and every case we undertake, we get full compensation for our clients. We thoroughly investigate and prepare our case and stay involved with our clients along every step of the litigation process. We are ready to walk in to the court room if necessary and our adversaries know it.
