If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, talk to an attorney who has represented hundreds of motorcyclists. The Weber & Nierenberg motorcycle accident law firm has a reputation in the cycling community as a law firm that aggressively represents motorcyclists in personal injury cases.
A Tradition of Compassionate, Personalized Service
Motorcycle accidents are unique because of the inability of motorists to easily see motorcycles on the road. Also, non-riders typically are biased against motorcyclists. We know how to show the insurance company, public entity and jury that the motorcycle would have been clearly visible if only the motorist had been attentive. We know how to neutralize any personal or corporate bias against motorcyclists.
Motorcycle accidents can cause severe injuries, including complex fractures (especially in the lower extremities), spinal cord injury, brain injury and amputation, or wrongful death. At our law firm, you will have an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who understands these injuries and who will monitor your medical progress.
Once you hire us, we will try to preserve all evidence remaining at the accident site. We will inspect and photograph your motorcycle or scooter. We will obtain and review all police, fire and ambulance reports. Interviewing witnesses before the insurance company or public entity does is crucial. Our law firm works with a renowned motorcycle accident reconstruction expert to reconstruct your visibility, location and movements so that the insurance company, public entity or jury can fully understand what happened.
When the insurance company or public entity disputes who is at fault for the accident or when the settlement offer is insufficient to compensate you for your losses, we will file a lawsuit and take your case to trial.
If a defective product was involved in your accident — brakes, fuel tank or any other part — we will pursue a product liability case against the manufacturer or seller.
Your Weber & Nierenberg motorcycle accident attorney will be familiar with whatever bike you were riding at the time of your accident — Harley, Gold Wing, Honda, Suzuki, Buell, Yamaha, Vespa or any other touring bike, racing bike or scooter.

If the at-fault driver in your motorcycle accident was either uninsured or underinsured, and if you purchased uninsured/underinsured coverage, your own insurance will cover your personal injury claim. You need a personal injury lawyer to help you make an uninsured/underinsured motorist accident claim.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage also covers you if you are the victim of a hit-and-run driver.
When you make an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim because of a motorcycle accident, your insurance company then stands in the shoes of the uninsured/underinsured driver and becomes your adversary. Even though you pay your insurance company for this coverage, your insurance company does not represent you. Rather, it represents its shareholders, who want the insurance company to pay you as little as possible, if anything at all.
The insurance company has lawyers fighting to minimize or avoid paying you compensation, so you need an experienced law firm fighting to maximize your compensation and guarding your interests.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident — especially a serious injury such as a complex bone fracture, amputation, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury — you should seek experienced counsel.

Our 36-year-old client was lawfully driving his motorcycle on I-80 near Hayward when a commuter van suddenly and without warning changed lanes into him, striking his motorcycle and foot. The defendant claimed that our client was speeding because he looked in his rear-view mirror and never saw our client. Our motorcycle expert reconstructed the accident and helped us prove that our client wasn’t speeding. Our client suffered a severe foot fracture, requiring surgery and a career change.
Our 30-year-old client from Vallejo was driving his motorcycle slightly above the speed limit when a slow-moving backhoe in front of him moved partially into the shoulder and then started turning left in front of our client, causing him to lay down his motorcycle, fracture his back and injure his spinal cord, which required spinal fusions at two vertebral levels. The adverse party predictably argued that our client was traveling at an excessive speed, but our expert motorcycle accident reconstructionist proved otherwise.
We represented a 34-year-old who was the passenger on a motorcycle struck by a car that ran a red light. All of her physical injuries were of the soft-tissue type. We claimed that the accident caused our client severe psychological injury that required psychiatric hospitalization.
We represented a 28-year-old who was the passenger on a motorcycle struck by a car that pulled out from a stop sign. She fractured her ankle and required two surgeries to fix it.
We assisted a 42-year-old who was driving her motorcycle on a country road when a car pulled out from a stop sign, causing her to drive her motorcycle into a ditch to avoid a collision. She fractured her wrist, which developed reflex sympathetic dystrophy, necessitating extensive medical treatment to regain function.
We represented a 33-year-old who was the passenger on her boyfriend’s motorcycle when he attempted to pass. She suffered a fractured wrist and neck and emotional trauma. Her boyfriend, who died in the accident, was at fault and was uninsured. We made an uninsured motorist claim against her insurance company, which settled for the full policy limits.
