Too many drivers, in a hurry to get somewhere, simply fail to pay attention to pedestrians, even when those pedestrians have the right of way. If you or someone you love has been hit by a motor vehicle, even if that car or truck was moving slowly, chances are your injuries are serious. You want a serious lawyer to help you pursue full and fair compensation for you losses. You want Weber & Nierenberg.
A Tradition of Compassionate, Personalized Service
For more than 30 years, the attorneys at Weber & Nierenberg have provided aggressive and effective advocacy to personal injury victims in the Bay area and across Northern California, including individuals who have suffered injury as pedestrians in motor vehicle accidents. We take a highly personalized approach to every case we handle, taking the time to learn the unique details, as well as what you need to fully compensate you for your losses. We’ll visit the scene of the accident, if necessary, and we’ll work closely with expert witnesses to put together the most effective arguments for your full financial recovery.
Our Representation in Pedestrian Accident Claims
We handle pedestrian accidents involving:
- People struck in by motorists while legally in a crosswalk
- Individuals injured as bystanders in the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident
- Individuals hit by flying debris from a car, truck or motorcycle accident
When you hire us to protect your rights after a pedestrian accident, we will painstakingly reconstruct exactly what happened, with all the details, including your visibility, location and movements and those of the vehicles around you. We’ll identify all witnesses and move quickly to obtain affidavits or sworn statements or to get their testimony through depositions.
We have the skills and experience to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs. However, if the insurance company or at-fault party refuses to negotiate in good faith, or to acknowledge liability, we are always willing, ready and able to take your case to a judge and jury to get the outcome you desire.
We take pedestrian accident claims involving all types of injury, from soft-tissue trauma to serious and catastrophic loss, such as broken bones, traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, paralysis, permanent scarring or disfigurement, burns and amputation or loss of limb. We also represent surviving family members in wrongful death claims

Recent Examples of How We Have Helped Our Personal Injury Clients
We represented a 76-year-old whose car was rear-ended by a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus. The bus driver was intoxicated, and our investigation revealed that the driver had an extensive substance abuse problem and prior accident history. The accident severed our client’s spinal cord and left him a T-5 paraplegic. The settlement included enough money to provide him with the needed life care prognosticated by our experts.
We represented the family of an 8-year-old who drowned during her swim class at a public pool in Contra Costa County. We proved to the defendant that the drowning would not have occurred if the pool staff had followed their stated protocols for pool safety. The settlement included a memorial established in honor of our clients’ daughter.
We represented the wife and two adult children of a 57-year old man (assembly line worker) who was struck and killed by an Oakland Police patrol car while crossing within a crosswalk. Following a year of litigation, OPD admitted liability and settled the lawsuit.
