Hit and Run Bicycle Accidents
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
When you are on a bicycle and are struck by a motorist, things can happen so quickly that the driver may be gone before you get your bearings. In some instances, the driver may be totally unaware of any contact. You may fear that, because you can’t locate the driver, you have no legal recourse to seek compensation for your losses. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your rights.
At Weber & Nierenberg, we have protected the rights of bicycle accident injury victims throughout the greater San Francisco Bay area and northern California, including cyclists injured in hit-and-run accidents, for nearly 30 years. We know the stress and anxiety you can experience when you have had a bicycle accident, not only dealing with the physical pain, but wondering how you will pay your bills and medical expenses. We emphasize personal service and attention, working directly with you throughout your case, from your first meeting with us to the resolution of your claim. We offer the flexibility and prompt response time you expect from a small law practice with the experience and resources customarily found only at a large law firm.

Recent Examples of How We Have Helped Our Personal Injury Clients
We represented a 76-year-old whose car was rear-ended by a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus. The bus driver was intoxicated, and our investigation revealed that the driver had an extensive substance abuse problem and prior accident history. The accident severed our client’s spinal cord and left him a T-5 paraplegic. The settlement included enough money to provide him with the needed life care prognosticated by our experts.
We represented the family of an 8-year-old who drowned during her swim class at a public pool in Contra Costa County. We proved to the defendant that the drowning would not have occurred if the pool staff had followed their stated protocols for pool safety. The settlement included a memorial established in honor of our clients’ daughter.
We represented the wife and two adult children of a 57-year old man (assembly line worker) who was struck and killed by an Oakland Police patrol car while crossing within a crosswalk. Following a year of litigation, OPD admitted liability and settled the lawsuit.
