Catastrophic Injuries

Permanent Disability Car Accidents Long-Term Compensation for Life-Changing Injuries

If your loved one has suffered a brain injury or other catastrophic disability from a motor vehicle accident, the compassionate attorneys of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos can help. We fight to ensure our clients will be compensated for future medical care and lost earnings if they can no longer work.

These cases require many experts to prove liability and determine the victim’s monetary needs for the years ahead. Our San Mateo law firm hires these professionals at our own expense — we don’t get reimbursed unless we win compensation through a settlement or jury verdict.

Contact us for a free consultation if your family member was severely injured or will be permanently disabled. We have handled cases throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury/head trauma
  • Spinal cord damage (paraplegia, quadriplegia)
  • Broken vertebrae/herniated disk/neck injury
  • Severe burn injury or disfigurement
  • Damage to organs or eyesight
  • Shattered bones

A brain injury can be hard to prove. We work closely with the client’s family members and physicians to get a full and accurate diagnosis of the damage and to document the person’s symptoms, treatment and limitations.

For any catastrophic injury, we consult with doctors and physical rehab specialists to determine the need for future surgery or ongoing care, including nursing care or home modifications. We also work with vocational rehabilitation specialists to determine what work (in any) the person can do, and economists to put a dollar value on future loss of earnings.

We commonly hire a life care planner to work with all of these experts to determine the client’s needs, from services to help recover as much as possible to damages for pain and suffering and the lost quality of life.

The lawyers at Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos has secured compensation for all types of motor vehicle accidents resulting in brain injury or other permanent injury. Call us at (650) 345-8484 to arrange a free case evaluation.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm! Agatha
I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.

I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
