Uninsured Motorist & Underinsured Motorist
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
When you have suffered physical injury or property loss while riding your motorcycle in California, you generally look to the negligent driver’s insurance company to seek recovery for your losses. If that person has no insurance or has a policy that does not adequately provide for your losses, you want an experienced lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation. Chances are your insurance policy has a clause providing coverage for losses caused by an uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist. An attorney who knows how these provisions work can get you the reimbursement you need and deserve.
At Weber & Nierenberg, we bring nearly 30 years of experience to people throughout the San Francisco Bay area and northern California who have been injured in motorcycle accidents. We place a high priority on personal service and attention, working directly with you throughout the legal process, from your first meeting with us until your claim is successfully resolved. We have intentionally kept our practice small so that we have the flexibility to quickly respond to any developments in your case and so that we can be accessible and available whenever you need to talk with us. But we still offer the resources, knowledge and experience you customarily find at a larger law office.
When You Have Been Injured by an Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist
Chances are you purchased an insurance policy with a clause providing coverage in the event you are injured by a motorist who either has no insurance or has minimal coverage. Most motorcycle riders, however, are unaware that such a clause exists even though you pay an additional premium for this benefit.
At Weber & Nierenberg, we have protected the rights of people injured by uninsured or underinsured motorists for more than a quarter of a century. We know how to quickly identify whether you have coverage and, if so, will work directly with your insurer to see that you get all the benefits to which you are entitled.
We will help you seek full and fair compensation for all losses incurred in a motorcycle accident, including lost wages and income, medical expenses, and physical pain and suffering.

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.
