Specializing in Personal Injury & Mass Tort Law

If you’ve been injured in an accident or due to a product defect, you may be entitled to damages for your medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and past and future pain and suffering. Our personal injury attorneys have many years of experience representing victims of accidents that have been caused by the negligence of others. Time is of the essence in being adequately represented in a personal injury case, since the insurance company begins preparing their defense as soon as they are aware of a potential claim. If you are seeking representation, we urge you to contact us immediately to discuss your accident. All consultations are free. Our lawyers have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for personal injury and mass tort clients.

We Take Your Personal Injury Cases Personally

How Personal Injury Cases Work

When an accident victim meets with a personal injury attorney, they will examine the viability of the claim. All personal injury cases need to possess the following four elements:

Green Circle Social Care Icon

Duty of Care

The individual or entity that caused the accident must have a legal duty of care to the plaintiff. For instance, a driver has a duty of care to others on the road.

Green Circle Social Care 2

Breach of Duty of Care

The party who had the duty of care, failed to live up to their obligation. An example would be the proprietor of a store failing to clean up a spill in an aisle.

Green Circle Social Care 3

Injury to the Plaintiff

Someone was injured as a result of the accident. An example would be a neck injury or an injury to a body part.

Green Circle Social Care 2


The plaintiff suffered damages as a result of a breach of a legal duty of care. For instance, the owner of a building failed to keep proper mold maintenance, thus causing tenants to suffer from illnesses by toxic mold in the building.

Here for You — Through It All

We know you have lots of questions. You’re going through a tough time and you just want to be able to get back on your feet quickly. That’s what we’re here for—to ease your fears and get the settlement you deserve.

How can I afford a personal injury lawyer?

We operate on a contingency fee basis. Essentially, you don’t pay attorney fees unless we’re able to secure a financial award on your behalf. If you don’t win, we don’t get paid.

Why shouldn’t I just accept the settlement offer from the defendant or the insurance company?

In a nutshell: Insurance adjusters work for the insurance company, not you. They know you want things over quickly, so they may make you a quick, low-ball offer, hoping you will take the money and run. But this isn’t right. You deserve to get the maximum settlement for your injury. And that’s what BK does best.

These Clients Trusted BK. You Can, Too

“I highly recommend attorney Jesse Bernheim and his team for any readers' future needs. Mr. Bernheim handled my insurance claim in a timely manner, and both he and his team kept me informed throughout the entire process. Without his representation, my claim would have been denied and I would have had several out of pocket expenses. Not only was the claim settled, but it was settled for the amount needed for repairs. Thank you, Jesse. Hopefully I won’t need you in the future, but if I do, you're the first phone call made. You are a true professional.”


“I have known Lou Battista for years and have always respected his tenacity and nonstop drive in everything he did. When it came to a point where I needed representation, I immediately thought of Lou and asked him to represent me, as I was getting very little response for my claim. In short order, meaning 1 to 2 weeks, I had an immediate increased response for my claim on the order of 3 to 4 times what they had originally offered, after Lou had submitted a claim on my behalf. Without his immediate response and aggressive position, I most certainly would have walked away with much less or even nothing.”


“Attorney Eric Sachs and his team are very professional and amazing. I highly recommend Bernheim Kelley Batista, LLC as the best law firm you can think of. Their communication is awesome. They handled my case and kept me updated every step of the way. I'm super happy with my end results. Thank you all for the time and effort put into my case. If you need an Attorney, Eric Sachs is the best to handle your situations. Don’t wait or think twice, you are in good hands!”
