San Francisco Bone Injury Attorneys
San Francisco Bay Area | Oakland | San Rafael | San Jose CA
Broken bones can be very serious injuries, usually requiring casting or surgery to repair. Fracture injuries will usually mean you will be unable to work for an extended period of time, and they can lead to arthritis at the fracture site. Your settlement or trial judgment should take these factors into account.

Nierenberg is AV-rated* and will take the time to listen to you and discuss your options with you. We built our reputation for excellence helping clients just like you.

Types of Accidents Causing Broken Bones
Many types of accidents can cause bones to break. In our experience, some of the leading causes of broken bones are:
- Falls (e.g., broken hips from slip-and-falls, trip-and-falls or dangerous property conditions)
- Motorcycle accidents
- Auto accidents
- Construction accidents
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Public transportation accidents
We dedicate ourselves to helping those in need. Our goal is to obtain for you and your family the compensation you need and deserve. We handle accident claims involving broken hips or other bones on a contingency-fee basis, which means that you pay us nothing unless we secure compensation for you.
Recent Settlements & Verdicts Involving Bone Injury
$1,850,000 — Bone fracture settlement for motorcycle accident victim
Our 36-year-old client was lawfully driving his Harley-Davidson motorcycle on I-80 near Hayward when a van suddenly and without warning changed lanes into him, striking his motorcycle and foot. The defendant attempted to avoid or limit liability by claiming that our client contributed to the accident by speeding. However, through the testimony of our motorcycle accident expert, we established that our client was not speeding. Our client suffered a severe foot fracture, requiring surgery and a career change.
We represented a 29-year-old tow truck driver from Vacaville who was struck by a car while he was hooking up a tow behind it. Our client suffered a severe crush and degloving injury to his leg, requiring multiple surgeries. The car driver had only $50,000 insurance, and when she passed away before the lawsuit settled, her estate added $120,000. We made an underinsured motorist claim against our client’s employer’s automobile uninsured/underinsured motorist policy and received an additional $950,000 for him.
