Potholes | Loose Gravel | Excessive Water or Ice | Broken or Missing Signs or Signals | Negligent Road Construction or Design

It’s a fairly frequent cause of motor vehicle accidents—there’s a pothole, loose gravel or dirt on the road, or the lanes are uneven. Either you or another motorist encounters the roadway defect, loses control of the vehicle and crashes. It all could have been avoided with proper monitoring and maintenance of the road.

When you have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident, you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses. But that can be more difficult when the defendant is a municipality or governmental entity. In such circumstances, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights, someone who has effectively secured damages in these types of cases. You want Weber & Nierenberg.

Recent Examples of How We Have Helped Our Automobile Accident 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 a 70-year-old who was a passenger in a car driven by her husband when they were rear-ended at high speed. Our client suffered bilateral jaw fractures, requiring her entire mouth to be reconstructed.
