When you’re on a motorcycle, any defect or irregularity in the roadway can put you at risk for serious injury. Potholes, depressions or cracks in the pavement or asphalt can easily lead you to lose control of your bike, with devastating consequences. If you have been injured because of the poor design, construction or maintenance of a street or roadway, you want an experienced personal injury attorney to protect your rights so that you can get full and fair compensation for all your losses.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney

At Weber & Nierenberg, we bring nearly 30 years of experience to people throughout the greater San Francisco Bay area and northern California. We have always put a premium on personal service and attention, working directly with you throughout your case, from your first meeting with us to the resolution of your claim. We offer the flexibility and prompt response time you expect from a small law practice with the experience and resources customarily found only at a large law firm. We combine our experience with the skill and knowledge developed over a quarter of a century in practice.

We provide comprehensive counsel to motorcyclists who have been injured because of poorly designed, constructed or maintained roads, filing claims and, if necessary, lawsuits against city, state or federal governments as well as private parties to get full and fair compensation for all losses. We understand the strict deadlines for seeking damages against a municipality. We handle any type of claim involving defects or dangerous conditions on the road, including slippery roads and potholes, missing manhole covers, poorly designed turns or highway ramps, and dangerous conditions caused by resurfacing or highway repairs.

Dangerous Highway Motorcycle Accident Attorney

We know from experience the potential losses resulting from a motorcycle accident. We will help you seek full and fair compensation for lost wages and income, medical expenses, loss of consortium or companionship, and physical pain and suffering.

We have the experience and knowledge to handle any type of injury sustained in a motorcycle accident. We handle serious and catastrophic losses, such as brain or spinal cord injury, paralysis, amputation or loss of limb, and loss of a loved one.

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.
