One painful injury that victims of car accidents experience is knee injury. Car accidents often cause knee ligament tears and sometimes fracture the patella. The knee is a main joint located in the central part of the leg between the thigh and lower leg. It is connected to two key bones, the femur, often called the thigh bone, and the tibia, called the shin bone which is protected from injury by the knee cap or patella. Nevertheless, the knee is susceptible to many injuries from auto collisions and slip & fall accidents, including fracture and ligament tears. Proper medical care is necessary and our firm is able to provide names of multiple doctors to treat such problems without any advance payment. If you or someone you care about suffered any kind of knee injury from any car accident or other personal injury accident in Altadena, Los Angeles or anywhere in California, please contact us now.

Client Reviews
You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
