Why choose Galbavy Law for your case?

At Galbavy Law, the attorney-client relationship is the most important aspect of how we help our clients.  While David is assisted by non-attorney team members, he will be directly involved in your case from the beginning to the end.  Some law firms try to minimize contact with their attorneys, but not here.  David wants to talk to you directly and will be your primary point of contact during your case. 

David handles cases where people are injured. These are accidents that occur at work, on the road, or while on someone’s property. His cases generally involve orthopedic injuries, injuries that require surgery, or injuries that result in permanent limitations or disfigurement. Navigating the medical treatment after an injury is one of the most important factors that David focuses on, not just for helping the case, but for prioritizing one’s recovery, because your health is priceless.  Let us work on your case so that you can focus on your recovery.  


Contingency Fee is Win/Win

We work on a contingency fee arrangement, which means we don’t charge an attorney’s fee unless we get a financial recovery for you, whether by settlement or court order. We will take your case only if we think we increase your recovery and get you a better result than you would get without us.

Millions Recovered

David is humbled to have recovered over $20 Million dollars for his clients. Of course, prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes in future cases because each case is unique and must be evaluated separately.

We Care About Our Clients

Most Common Cases

Our talented team is capable of handling a wide variety of injury cases. Here are our most common case types:


Workers' Compensation

Many injuries that occur at work are covered by workers’ compensation, but not all of them.  If you were hurt at work, let us fight to get you all the medical treatment and compensation you deserve. David is a certified workers’ compensation specialist who is ready to help you.


Car Accidents

If you are injured by the negligence of another driver and get any kind of medical treatment, we can help you identify all of the insurance policies covering your accident to maximize your recovery. North Carolina is one of a few contributory negligence states, which means if you are 1% at fault then you recover nothing.  Let us help you navigate your claim.


Truck Accidents

Trucking accidents often result in more significant injuries than normal automobile accidents, and there are more rules and laws to navigate in trucking accidents.  Also, the policy limits in these cases are higher, so there is more as stake for you to win or lose. Let us help you get what you deserve.

However, prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes in future cases because each case is unique and must be evaluated separately.
