Personal Injury

After a personal injury accident, we can help get your life back to normal

Since the accident, you want the world to stop, to go back to the way it was.

The stress, anxiety and chaos can be almost unbearable.

And on top of that you are thrown into a system which is unfamiliar, frightening, and almost unbelievably complex.

You need the support of your family.  Your friends.  Your doctors.

And, just like great medical care, you need an expert personal injury lawyer.  Without that help, you will become the victim of not only the accident, but the insurance industry as well.

At Gailey Legal Group, we have devoted our entire practice exclusively to supporting people like you … providing representation for those who are injured or for the loved ones of those who died due to the negligence of others.  The insurance claim process is indeed complex.  For the most part, the rules and procedures are set by the insurance companies.  That means the playing field is far from level.

Herm Gailey and the staff at Gailey Legal Group are familiar with those rules and have spent their careers on that playing field.  We can level it for you whether the case involves a claim which is negotiated to a full settlement or goes to a formal jury trial.  Remember, insurance companies are not in the business of paying claims fairly.  They are in the business of paying out as little as possible.  If you do not have a knowledgeable, experienced personal injury attorney, they will succeed.

Our personal injury lawyer consultation is FREE.  Don’t spend another moment without our help.  Take the first step in getting your lives back to normal … call us or email us, we’re here to help.

Frequently asked questions about personal injury cases

Individual attention

Quite simply, it’s our commitment to personal, one-on-one legal care. Every client receives Herm Gailey’s full attention. Start to finish.

Dedicated personal injury lawyer

With Gailey Legal Group, representing injured people is our full time job.  You are represented by Herm Gailey – an experienced personal injury lawyer completely focused on the personal injury field — not someone fresh out of law school or some general practitioner pretending to be a personal injury lawyer.

The experience of our firm’s York-based attorney and staff means we are much more likely to win your case if it goes to trial.  Our track record at trial and our willingness to try cases means that insurers make us better settlement offers.

By design, our firm is small. Unlike large firms where the clients are “signed up” by senior lawyers and then passed off to recent law school graduates, Herm is dedicated to providing individual, personal attention from day one throughout your case.

In short, we don’t try to be all things to all people. We won’t write your will. We won’t represent you in a divorce. Rather, we devote our practice solely to issues involving personal injury, wrongful death, social security and workers’ compensation.


Herm Gailey has extraordinary qualifications, including nearly 30 years of practice in the personal injury field, making him one of the most experienced personal injury attorneys in Central Pennsylvania.

That experience is uniquely diverse. After graduating from Duke University School of Law, one of the top law schools in the nation, Herm spent the early years of his career representing the interests of insurance companies in claims brought by injured individuals. It didn’t take long for Herm to realize that his heart lay on the other side of the table and for more than 20 years, his practice has been devoted solely to representing personal injury clients. However, the “insider knowledge” he gained by working for the insurance industry gives him a decided edge in helping the victims of accidents avoid becoming victims of the insurance companies.

A strong, dedicated staff

A law firm is only as good as its staff. Don’t let anybody tell you differently. At Gailey Legal Group, we are committed to providing strong, well-qualified staff support for the benefit of both lawyer and client. Our high staff-to-lawyer ratio lets us provide you with better, more responsive service.

Outstanding professional reputation

Ask around. You will find Gailey Legal Group has an unsurpassed reputation for integrity and doing things the right way – the old fashioned way – with hard work, attention to detail and a commitment to seeing a job through to its resolution. The firm has the highest rating available from Martindale Hubbell, the preeminent ratings service for lawyers with the highest possible ratings in both qualifications and ethics.

No recovery, no fee

When you work with Gailey Legal Group, there is no fee unless a recovery is made. The initial consultation is always free. Should you decide that you do not wish to go forward with your case or retain our office, there is no cost to you and no commitment. If you are unable to get to our office because of your injuries or the loss of your transportation, we can almost always arrange to visit you at your home or in the hospital.

Convenient location, convenient parking

We have our own convenient, secure parking garage attached to our 96 South building on the first block of South George Street in York, PA. Our offices are simply a few steps from the parking garage, and our offices are handicapped accessible.

Timely appointments

We know when you call with a case, you are calling because you need help right now. We schedule appointments quickly, because the more quickly we act, the more effectively we can protect your rights and the better the result will be. So, if you are involved in an accident, send us an email or call us right away and we will make arrangements to meet with you promptly and conveniently.
