TMJ or facial jaw joint injuries are just some of the serious injuries that victims of car accidents experience. TMJ is short for "temporomandibular joint". The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw, called the mandible, to the temporal bone at the side of the head. The temporomandibular is the most frequently used and complex joints in your body. The TMJ is injured by direct impact, such as when an airbag deploys and strikes the victims face, or the thrust of a “whiplash” type injury, including when the victims head hits the seat rest. Symptoms that point to a serious TMJ injury include 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. If you or someone you care about sustained any TMJ and Jaw Joint Injury from any car accident or other personal injury accident in Santa Monica, Malibu Los Angeles or anywhere in California, please contact us now, including for referrals to doctors who may provide treatment without expecting any payment until the claim is resolved.

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.
