PREMISES LIABILITY – FALL FROM BALCONY – HERMOSA BEACH, LA
TWO MILLION ($2,000,000.00) DOLLAR SETTLEMENT
I was hurt at the home of a "friend" in Hermosa Beach who refused to even tell me or my family if he had insurance to cover my hospital bill. I hired the Walch Law Office to represent me. They immediately took action, forced the responsible party to provide his insurance information, and proceeded to settle my case for over two million dollars ($2,000,000.00). This was not an easy case. First, my "friend’s" insurance company claimed I was partially at fault and second because I was young and just started some new businesses, they claimed my losses were too "speculative.” The insurance company even hired doctors to try to show that my injuries were now minor and should not prevent me from doing things that I could not do. I came to understand that is a typical unfair tactic of many insurance companies. Fortunately for me, my attorneys were not deterred and worked with me for months to gather, review and present the evidence necessary to prove I was not at fault and to show that even though my businesses were new and had not yet produced any profits, that my damages were very real and I was entitled to fair compensation. My attorneys even hired experts, including excellent doctors, to work with us to help prove my claim. I was thrilled with not only the excellent and detailed work and, of course, the incredible result but also with the understanding, compassion and constant communication by the Walch office. I most sincerely give it my very highest recommendation.

HIRED BY INSURANCE ADJUSTER TO HANDLE HIS OWN
SLIP & FALL INJURY CASE IN EL SEGUNDO, CALIF.
$250,000.00 SETTLEMENT PLUS ALL WORKERS COMPENSATION BENEFITS!
I want to thank you for your excellent legal advice, hard work and terrific settlement. As you know, I was an insurance claims adjuster, hurt on the job (slip & fall accident at work in El Segundo, L.A.) and when the case I was adjusting against your law office settled, because I was so impressed with your work, I hired you to handle my own slip and fall injury case. Although I was a very experienced claims adjuster and willing to settle my case for only about $8,000, the other insurer would only offer $5,000. I consulted you, you conducted investigation and discovery, and, with your excellent legal advice, in addition to my workers compensation benefits you were able to settle my case for $250,000.00 new money! My wife and I still can’t believe I was willing to settle for about $8000 when you recovered $250,000.00 plus my workers comp. I shall always remember you and what you did for us. I give your firm my very highest personal recommendation and am even happy to speak to any prospective clients. Thank you again for the incredible result!
MEDICAL MALPRACTICE BURN INJURY SETTLEMENT – WEST COVINA
I cannot thank you enough or say how much I appreciate what your firm did for me.
During surgery I was burned. My surgeon blamed the nurse who worked for the hospital and the hospital claimed it happened after I left the hospital even though the type of burn I suffered was exactly the type that can happen in surgery when someone is negligent. In other words, no one took responsibility, which I understand is typical in medical malpractice cases, and there was no settlement offer.
I hired the Walch law firm to represent me. After hiring and consulting experts to prove my case, my attorneys negotiated an excellent settlement for me at mediation. The defendants insisted the high amount be kept confidential. I also was extremely pleased with the personal attention given by both Mr. Walch and his legal assistant. I highly recommend the Walch Law Corporation for personal injury and medical malpractice cases!

BURN INJURY - SHERMAN OAKS
SUPERMARKET BURN VICTIM SETTLES CLAIM
I was badly burned at a super market in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, Calif. The burn was very painful, leaving a permanent scar. The market said it was not its fault, refused to take responsibility and denied my claim.
I hired the Walch Law Office to represent me. I worked closely with both Robert Walch and Gary Walch. They worked very hard on this difficult claim, obtained the proof they needed, and settled my case without going to court. I really did not want to go to court and was so happy they could settle my case without any court involvement.
I am extremely happy with the excellent settlement amount, and also the kind personal attention given me by everyone at their firm. They really care and even responded the same night to my evening emails! I feel they are the very best. I recommend them to my friends and would not go to any other personal injury attorney!

RACE TRACK HORSE INJURY - POMONA, L.A., CALIF
INJURED SPECTATORS SETTLE PREMISES LIABILITY CASE
Thank you so much for the wonderful job and result on our injury case!
My daughter and I were injured when a race horse lost its rider and went into the stands. Although we clearly did nothing wrong, everyone else denied responsibility. My attorney, Gary Walch, and his staff, did an excellent job, from immediately inspecting the race track scene to helping us get medical care to settling our case at mediation. The result was so good that the defendant actually requested it be kept confidential.
Thank you for keeping us informed and working so hard to get us an excellent result. We always recommend your law firm for personal injury and accident cases!
MEDICAL MALPRACTICE WRONGFUL DEATH CASE SETTLEMENT
WOODLAND HILLS, CALIF.
Gary & Robert,
I want to thank you so much for the excellent result on a very difficult case. My elderly mother went to her HMO in Woodland Hills with a cold. Other than her cold, with major breathing problems from that cold, she was in good health. Although elderly with trouble breathing, she was not hospitalized or even given a chest X-Ray or EKG. She was told she would get better soon and sent home. Shockingly, she died later that evening. We believe had she received better care she would have survived. After all, even her doctors said it was just a cold and she should get better soon. We still don't understand why they would not even do a chest X-ray or EKG for an elderly person with a cold with breathing problems? We tried to settle, but the HMO said its care was proper, she was elderly, and its adjuster denied any responsibility and refused to settle. Apparently, the HMO wanted us to believe that it was just a coincidence that my mother, with major breathing problems, was told she would be fine but just happened to pass a few hours later? We retained the Walch Law Office. The HMO retained a big defense firm who seemed to have an unlimited budget to hire its own medical experts to fight us every step of the way. The HMO even filed a motion to dismiss our case, called a Motion for Summary Judgment, with a declaration from its medical expert stating the medical care was proper and it did not cause her death, but fortunately its motion did not succeed. You obtained copies of all medical records, carefully reviewed the case, retained and consulted with two medical experts of our own, successfully opposed the HMOs motion and were able to convince it to settle. The HMO insisted the terms be kept confidential so I won’t go into them now. I am a very busy doctor and, for that reason, not the easiest client, so I really want to thank you for keeping me informed, scheduling things for my convenience, and even rescheduling things, again for my convenience, never giving-up and getting such a good result. When I had other unrelated legal questions, you always tried to assist without charging me for this extra time. I really appreciate everything you did. I have referred other injury cases to you and will continue to do so. You get my top recommendation. Thank you again!

INSURANCE CLAIM WRONGFULLY DENIED – WINNETKA, LOS ANGELES, CA.
BAD FAITH INSURANCE SETTLEMENT FOR ALL DAMAGES SUFFERED
I want to thank you so much for all your help in settling my insurance bad faith claim for my company’s theft loss in Winnetka, Los Angeles. Although I expressly requested theft coverage and the theft was recorded on my company’s video surveillance system, my own insurance company refused to pay me anything, claiming there was no coverage. I was shocked and quickly realized I needed legal help so I hired your law firm. You worked very closely with me to gather proof of coverage and my damages, and we were able to settle with the insurer, underwriter and broker. I am so relieved to have this over and thank you so much for your personal attention to detail and your genuine concern about my interests. I will recommend your firm to anyone with any insurance claim. Thank you again!

RECOVERED MONEY - CANOGA PARK, LOS ANGELES, CALIF.
I am truly amazed by the terrific result you and your firm just got for me. For almost three years I was battling with my bank to recover lost funds based on my bank’s negligent mishandling of my company’s deposit involving a foreign company. I finally gave-up and hired your law firm to represent me. Your firm worked hard to gather evidence, research, consult with experts and put together an outstanding demand package, with follow-up negotiations to recover my lost funds.
Your firm not only kept after me to provide necessary evidence and information so we could resolve this international banking dispute without going to court, but also promptly followed-up with my bank so we were able to settle without court within just about one month of my providing you with requested information. You saved me so much time and money. I won't mention any of the details as my bank required the terms be kept confidential.
As you know, this is not the first time your firm has successfully represented me in a difficult case where the other party refused to make any payment at all and all I can say is you simply amaze me again. I really appreciate your hard work, keeping me informed, excellent results and shall continue to be your client and recommend others to you.
