Personal Injury Accident in Bakersfield, California

Your Personal Injury and Accident Lawyer for the City of Bakersfield


Call our experienced lawyers right away at 1-866-INJURY2


Bakersfield, California

Once considered an outpost on the other side of the foothills and part of central valley, Bakersfield not only has gained a foothold as a Southern California city, is a booming city. The oil and farming community now is larger in population than Anaheim, Riverside, and Santa Ana with 363,000 residents.

Yes, it was founded in 1863 by Thomas Baker, a lawyer and former colonel with the Ohio militia. He staked his claim along the Kern River and the place came to be known as Baker’s Field, a stage stop for travelers. By 1870 there were 600 folks residing there, making it the principle town in the Kern County. And the population has steadily grown ever since, mainly through migrations of Texas and Oklahoma oil workers.

Such a continuing surge in Bakersfield’s population brings with it greater risk of all manner of problems and legal headaches. The oil field workers have a long tradition of being roustabouts and living energetically and on the edge.

One common injury that victims of car accidents experience is TMJ and Jaw Joint Injury. What is TMJ? TMJ is defined as "temporomandibular joint". The temporomandibular joint is the connector with the lower jaw. It joins the temporal bone at the side of the head. The temporomandibular joint's importance cannot be understated. This joint is one of the most frequently used and complex joints in your body.

The TMJ is injured by direct impact. It often occurs when an airbag deploys and hits the victim in the face. Another possibility is the momentum of a “whiplash” type injury, including when the victims head hits the seat rest. There are symptoms that arise when one faces a serious TMJ injury.

Visit your doctor if you hear a clicking sound when opening or closing your mouth, locking of your jaw, difficulty or discomfort while chewing or biting, pain in neck, shoulders and back, hearing problems and dizziness.

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.
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you for making it so easy over e-mail for me. I'm a busy working mom of an Autistic 5 year old son and you guys were great. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Edna G.
