At Arendsen Braddock LLP, some of our most experienced attorneys not only represent motorcycle riders, but we ride ourselves. We are proud to have gotten some exceptional results for our motorcycle clients and we understand that motorcycle cases can present unique challenges and very serious injuries.
Often the police try to blame motorcycle riders for accidents, regardless of who’s really at fault. We deal with these stereotypes all the time and send out our own team of independent experts to investigate the accident and find out what really happened. Our experienced trial attorneys then go to work to fight the insurance companies and hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions. If you’re in need of medical care, we also make sure you get to the best doctors to get the treatment you need for your injuries. We fight to get you all the compensation you deserve, including money for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, physical impairments, deformities, and other injuries. We also recover money for spouses or other family members whose relationships have suffered as a result of serious injuries to their loved ones.
Dogs are universally known as man’s best friend, but not every dog is friendly, and not all owners are as responsible as they should be.

We have handled numerous dog bit cases, and as trial attorneys with a reputation for going above and beyond for every client, we put our expertise and determination to work for you.
Often, our clients know the owners of the dog and don’t want to sue them.

Either way, we work hard to ensure that you get money to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and therapy to help alleviate the mental and emotional damage of experiencing such a traumatic event.

Uber and Lyft Accidents
An accident involving Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare companies is often very different from a normal car accident case and requires experienced counsel to obtain a large recovery. One reason these cases can be challenging is that Uber and Lyft are large, powerful companies that fight their cases aggressively and will do anything they can to blame you or another party for their driver’s carelessness or inattentive driving. They also often involve unique insurance issues, including insurance coverage, so victims of these accidents absolutely need experienced and compassionate attorneys to fight for them.
When we take on these cases, we make sure we have the best team of accident investigators to prove the other driver was at fault and the best doctors in town to make sure our clients get on the road to recovery and that we can powerfully convey the extent of our clients’ injuries to the other side.

Slip and Fall
Restaurants, shopping centers, and other businesses often fail to properly maintain their premises, leading to significant slip and fall incidents and other accidents. These businesses owe a duty of care to their customers, and if they fail to properly maintain their common areas or other places, it can result in debilitating injuries, not to mention lost income and reduced quality of life. Our team of trial attorneys are well versed in strategies for taking on large restaurant chains, big box retailers, home improvement stores, and other big corporations. Their large law firms and delay tactics do not scare us and never deter us from pursuing just compensation for our clients, whether through settlement or trial.

Wrongful death cases involve special types of damages that cannot simply be explained by adding up numbers and talking about only lost financial support. We give all our clients our cell phone numbers and spend time not just thinking about your case, but simply spending time with you and your family to understand the full extent of the impact of losing your loved one.
