Unsafe Lane Changes
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
Under California law, a driver may not change lanes on any road unless the lane change can be completed with reasonable safety, and only after giving an appropriate signal to other drivers who may be affected by the lane change (California Vehicle Code, Section 22107). The signal must be given continuously for the last 100 feet before turning (California Vehicle Code, Section 22108). Unfortunately, these laws are frequently broken and vehicles often change lanes and strike motorcyclists they negligently and carelessly failed to see.
At the law offices of Weber & Nierenberg, we have protected the rights of motorcycle victims across northern California and the greater San Francisco Bay area for nearly 30 years. We built our practice on a commitment to personal service and attention, working directly with you at all times, from your first meeting with us to the resolution of your claim. As a small law practice, we offer flexibility and a quick response time to any developments in your case. But we also provide the resources and knowledge you might find only at a large law firm.

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.
