Bike Accidents & Wrongful Death
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
When you take a bicycle out on the road, even if you exercise sound judgment and wear the right safety equipment, a collision with a motor vehicle or an accident due to a loss of control can result in serious injury, even death. If your loved one has died in a bicycle accident resulting from the carelessness or negligence of another person, you want an experienced bike accident lawyer to hold the responsible party accountable and make that person provide some measure of compensation for the loss of affection, companionship and support your loved one gave you.
At Weber & Nierenberg, we have provided comprehensive and compassionate counsel to bicycle accident injury victims and people who have lost a loved one as a result of a bicycle accident throughout northern California and the greater San Francisco Bay area for nearly 30 years. We know the emotional challenges you face after the loss of a loved one. As a small law firm, we emphasize accessibility and flexibility, working hard to promptly respond to any developments in your case and to be there whenever you need to talk. But we also have the resources and breadth of knowledge you normally find only at larger law firms.
When You Have Lost a Loved One in a Bicycle Accident
At Weber & Nierenberg, we understand that no amount of money will bring your loved one back. But we also understand that your loved one brought you companionship and affection, and may have provided for all or some of your financial needs. When your loved one is wrongfully taken from you because of the careless or negligent act of another person, you are entitled to compensation for your losses.
When you have lost a loved one in a bicycle accident, your grief can understandably consume you, making it difficult to take the steps necessary to protect your interests. When you hire us, we will move quickly to:
- fully investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident so that we can identify all the potentially responsible parties.
- take all the time necessary to understand the role your loved one played in your family, so that we can determine the full extent of your losses, such as lost wages and income, medical expenses, and loss of care, comfort and society.
- take the steps necessary to set up your loved one’s estate and identify all parties who may have a claim for damages.
- work directly with insurance providers to make certain that you receive all benefits to which you are entitled as a result of your loved one’s death.
- provide direction with respect to funeral arrangements and grief counseling.

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.
