Cars may be getting safer, but drivers aren’t: cell phones, texting, drinking, drugs, inattention, sleeplessness and carelessness can all contribute to collisions. If you have been in an accident, you know that, at minimum, it temporarily disrupts your life. Sometimes a car crash can end a life – or change a life forever.
At Gallagher Law, LLC, we can’t find replacement cars, nor can we heal an injury. We do help alleviate the stress that our clients go through by dealing with the insurance companies and working toward a fair outcome.
Our clients are not trying to get rich from an auto accident. They just want to be treated fairly and get their lives back to normal. We help them do that. Whether that means settling a small case with an insurance company- trying a case for a paralyzed client all the way through a jury verdict- taking on large trucking companies- or litigating complex automobile insurance coverage issues in appellate courts- we have helped people get excellent results for their injury claims.

Tim has the experience, knowledge and skill to negotiate with both insurance companies and the at-fault driver; determine other potentially responsible individuals or entities; challenge insurance-company attempts to downplay the extent or cause of injuries; communicate with insurance adjustors and investigators; make sure all deadlines are met; and help ensure full compensation for the injured person.
Even in cases where the at-fault driver was uninsured or the injured person is the victim of a hit-and-run, Tim has helped his clients recover under their uninsured motorist coverage.
Legal Support in Auto Accidents: Contact Us
Most people don’t want to go to trial- we know that – but so do the insurance companies and their lawyers. But what the insurance companies and their big law firms also know is that Tim Gallagher is willing to try auto-accident cases. Tim has found that regular people who serve on juries can be fairer and more understanding about how his clients have suffered than the insurance companies and their lawyers. Attorneys like Tim who are willing to take a case to trial can negotiate a fair settlement; lawyers who only want to settle cannot guarantee a fair trial or a fair settlement.
Tim has taken on some of the country’s biggest auto-insurance companies:
- American Family
- Country Companies
- Farm Bureau
- State Auto
- State Farm
