Throughout the year, thousands of motorcyclists take to the road to enjoy the beautiful Southern California weather. Both motorists and motorcyclists have a responsibility to share the road and avoid collisions, but when accidents happen, motorcyclists are at an elevated risk of being injured or killed. You may have suffered catastrophic injuries. You may have even lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident.
Unfortunately, getting compensation after being injured on a motorcycle can be a difficult process. Insurance companies may argue that, by getting on a motorcycle, you assumed the risk of injury. They may reduce or deny your claim, saying that you were at fault. That's not right. You need a dedicated motorcycle accident lawyer in Woodland Hills to present your side of the story.

Because of the amount of force exerted on the body when a motorcyclist is hit by a car or hits a stationary object, broken bones happen frequently. Serious breaks such as broken legs or arms can take months to heal, leaving you unable to work or care for children. Even a more minor injury such as a broken finger can make it difficult to do your job. Don't let a broken bone derail your life. Our attorneys can help you get the compensation you need to cover those medical expenses and missed wages.
Head injuries are among the most serious injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents. Helmets can help to prevent those injuries, but when a motorcyclist's head hits the ground at high speed, a helmet may not do enough. You or a loved one may face a long-term or permanent disability due to a head injury. However, with the legal team at Ardalan & Associates on your side, you'll be able to get the compensation you need to rebuild your life.
Road rash is a commonly used term for injuries suffered when a motorcyclist's skin makes contact with the road after he or she is thrown from the motorcycle. Wearing leather, denim or other heavy clothing can provide some protection against road rash, but sometimes, that protection isn't enough. Road rash can cause severe skin damage requiring grafts or reconstructive surgery, and if dirt or gravel from the road enters the wound, there's a high risk of infection.
If you've suffered a skin injury such as road rash, it's especially important to go to an experienced attorney from our firm to get compensation. Often, the award from a successful settlement or verdict can pay for the procedures you need to reduce scarring or disfigurement from the accident.
In a motorcycle accident, it's quite common for a fall from the bike or contact with a vehicle to cause muscle damage - which may never heal. Serious cases of muscle damage can even cause paralysis, making it difficult to work or care for children in the future. In order to maintain your quality of life after an accident, you'll need a committed attorney from our firm to advocate for you. Muscle damage is a long-term injury, and any settlement or judgment you receive should cover those long-term costs.
Biker's arm is a potentially serious injury caused when a motorcyclist falls on his or her arm during an accident - often when a bike falls on its side. Landing on the arm in this manner can cause nerve damage and thus partial or total loss of use of the limb. If you've suffered a biker's arm injury, you might be unable to work and need to make significant changes to your lifestyle. Let our attorneys advocate for you and help you recover the compensation you need to keep moving forward.
Injuries to the legs and feet are among the most common suffered in motorcycle accidents. While rarely fatal, a leg injury can rob you of much of your mobility and independence. You may be unable to work and feel as though your dignity has been stolen. Our compassionate, committed attorneys will fight for you in the wake of the accident and help you through this difficult time.
It's quite common for a motorcyclist to walk away from an accident feeling fine, only to end up in an emergency room days later with internal bleeding or organ damage. Internal injuries are the main reason why you should always see a doctor right away after an accident, even if you feel fine. However, even if you delayed in seeking medical treatment for your injury, you still deserve to be compensated and need to hold the motorist who hurt you accountable. Contact Ardalan & Associates, and we'll advocate for you.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable people on the road. Without the enclosed body of a vehicle protecting them, they're exposed to catastrophic and often fatal injuries. If you've lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, our attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim against the motorist who caused your accident. No amount of money can bring your loved one back, but we've often seen that compensation can make a big difference in the lives of the people left behind.
Distracted drivers frequently hit motorcycles because they're relatively small and thus easy to overlook. Texting while driving as well as using handheld phones while driving is illegal in California, but some motorists choose to ignore those laws and put bikers at risk. If you were hurt by a distracted driver, we can help you put your life back together. Contact Ardalan & Associates today.
Oftentimes, motorists who hit motorcycles make this excuse, but it doesn't excuse anything. A motorcycle is a vehicle, and motorists have a legal responsibility to share the road with other vehicles. After an accident caused by a distracted or inattentive motorist, you can turn to us to hold the negligent driver accountable. We'll be happy to meet with you for a free case evaluation.
Statistically, nearly two thirds of motorcycle accidents are caused by a car turning left in front of the motorcycle. Motorists are expected to yield to oncoming traffic when making left turns, and an oncoming motorcycle has the right of way. At Ardalan & Associates, we believe in holding motorists accountable when they fail to share the road in order to make the roads safer for everyone. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Speeding is a common cause of motorcycle accidents because the faster the car is moving, the less time a driver has to react to surrounding circumstances. Because motorcycles are smaller than passenger cars, they're often overlooked by speeding drivers. A high-speed accident can cause serious injuries, especially to the unprotected body of a motorcyclist. Turn to the committed trial lawyers at Ardalan & Associates for help.
Motorists often fail to share the road properly when driving behind a motorcyclist, leading to rear-end collisions. Many drivers don't know that bikers often need to change speeds or change position within a lane to react to road conditions. A rear-end collision with a motorcycle, even at low speeds, can cause the motorcyclist to be thrown from the bike, leading to road rash and other serious injuries. If you were rear-ended, our attorneys can help you fight for compensation.
Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable people on the road for a number of reasons, and every accident involving a motorcycle is unique. Perhaps your accident was caused by a reckless driver, a poorly maintained road or a mechanical issue with another vehicle. You may have been forced off the road in a no-contact accident. Regardless of the specific cause, if your accident was due to another driver's negligence, our legal team can help.
