Stop Sign & Stop Light Accidents
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
It happens much too often on the roadways in northern California. You are riding your motorcycle, with the right of way, through an intersection. A car or truck driver coming from an intersecting street fails to obey the traffic signal, running a stoplight or a stop sign and crossing your path or hitting you broadside. Even wearing a helmet or other safety equipment, your injuries can often be serious. You want an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.
At the law offices of Weber & Nierenberg, we have aggressively protected the rights of motorcycle accident injury victims, including motorcyclists who have been injured when another motorist ran a red light or a stop sign, for over 30 years. The hallmark of our practice has always been our commitment to a high level of personal service and attention. We are a small firm and have the flexibility to promptly respond when there are developments in your case. At the same time, we offer the extensive resources and knowledge you normally expect to find at a large law practice.
Motorcycle Accident Claims | Stop Sign or Stoplight Violations
Under the California Vehicle Code, the driver of a motor vehicle is required to come to a complete stop at a stop sign or red light. Unfortunately, this law is broken much too often. When this results in a collision with a motorcyclist, the consequences can be severe.
We handle cases involving all types of injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident, including serious and catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries or brain trauma, broken bones, paralysis, road rash, scarring or disfigurement, and amputation or loss of limb. We also litigate wrongful death claims.
We will help you seek full and fair compensation for all losses sustained in a motorcycle accident, including lost wages and income, costs of medical care, physical pain and suffering, and loss of companionship or consortium.

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.
