Bicycle Accidents | Right Hand Turns
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
It happens much too often in northern California. You are riding your bicycle, following the rules by traveling on the right-hand side of the road or in a designated bike lane. You have intentionally stayed off the sidewalk, knowing that is prohibited by state law. You approach an intersection with a green light and a car just before the intersection. The car has no turn signal flashing, so you assume that you can travel through the intersection. Without warning, the vehicle entering the intersection makes a right turn, either directly into your path or hitting you broadside as you go through the intersection.
If you have been injured on a bicycle by a motorist making a sudden or unanticipated right-hand turn, you want an experienced bicycle accident attorney to protect your rights. At Weber & Nierenberg, we bring nearly 30 years of experience to people throughout the greater San Francisco Bay area and northern California. We have always put a premium on 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. We combine our experience with the skill and knowledge developed over a quarter of a century in practice.
Protecting Cyclists Injured in Right Hand Turn Accidents
We provide aggressive and comprehensive representation to bicyclists who have been injured by the careless or negligent acts of motorists, including in situations where a driver makes a right turn into the path of a cyclist. Motorists will often claim that you “appeared out of nowhere” or that they didn’t see you, but the simple fact is that they failed to exercise the proper standard of care.
When you hire us to help you recover damages for injuries sustained in a bicycle accident, we will work hard to get you full and fair compensation for all your losses, including lost wages or income, medical expenses, the costs of rehabilitation or physical therapy, and your physical pain and suffering. We take claims involving all types of injuries sustained in a bicycle accident, including serious and catastrophic losses such as brain and spinal cord injury, paralysis, broken bones, and amputation or loss of limb. We also handle wrongful death claims arising out of bicycle accidents.

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.
