Hit and Run Motorcycle Accident
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
If you have been injured as a motorcyclist in a hit-and-run accident, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your interests. Successfully recovering for your losses can be challenging since you don’t know the identity of the person who caused your injuries and can’t turn to their insurance company for compensation. You want to work with a personal injury attorney who has handled these types of claims and who knows how to get full and fair compensation for your injuries.
Motorcycle Accident Attorney
At Weber & Nierenberg, we have protected the rights of personal injury victims, including motorcyclists injured in hit-and-run accidents, throughout northern California and the greater San Francisco Bay area for more than a quarter of a century. The hallmark of our practice is our commitment to personal service and attention. When you hire us to protect your interests, you will work directly with an attorney at all times, from the initial consultation until your case is resolved through a settlement or a verdict. As a small firm, we offer a great deal of flexibility and can promptly respond to any developments in your case. But we still have the breadth of knowledge, resources and experience you would expect to find only at a large law practice.
Hit and Run Motorcycle Accident
In order to recover for losses suffered as a motorcyclist in a hit-and-run accident in California, you must prove there was contact between you or your bike and the vehicle that caused the accident. When you hire us, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your accident, looking for all evidence to demonstrate the validity of your claim. Over nearly 30 years of practice, we have established a network of experts who can help us identify critical evidence to support your claim.
When you seek recovery for injuries suffered in a hit-and-run accident, the claim you file will always be under the uninsured motorist clause in your own motorcycle insurance policy. You pay an additional premium for this coverage, which allows you to recover for losses when you are in an accident with a driver who probably has no insurance and fled the scene.
Because we have handled hit-and-run uninsured motorist claims for years, we know how to quickly determine whether you have this coverage and are entitled to reimbursement for your losses. We will be your advocate with your insurer, making certain that you receive all the benefits to which you are entitled.
Recent Examples of How We Have Helped Our Motorcycle Accident Clients
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 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 going at an excessive speed, but our expert motorcycle accident reconstructionist proved otherwise.
