The Bertch Firm

Every year in California roughly 200,000 traffic accidents occur (a new accident every three minutes), resulting in over 3,000 deaths, and hundreds of thousands of injuries. In that same period of time 340 million work-related injuries and illnesses occur across the US. While the number of incidents is great, the suffering, damage, losses, and expenses are greater.

If you have been injured in an accident, contact a personal injury lawyer at The Bertch Firm today for a free consultation. Our team is available 24/7 to discuss your case.

We fight to recover the maximum compensation to which you are entitled under California law, and our philosophy is simple:

If we don’t win, you don’t pay.
