Municipal Vehicles & Transportation Injuries
Muni is used extensively by commuters all over the City and County of San Francisco. In addition, the new Muni Rapid buses are traveling faster and carrying more passengers than ever before. On crowded thoroughfares like Geary Boulevard, these buses pose a particular hazard for other motorists and passengers.
When these accidents occur, it’s vital to get high-quality support and experienced legal counsel you can trust. If you or a family member was injured as a passenger or a pedestrian in a Muni accident, getting as much information about the case as soon as possible is key for our team to
assemble a case for two reasons.
First, under State of California law, anyone can file a personal injury claim for up to two years from the date of the injury. However, if the claim is made against a government agency (including the public transit system), you only have six months to file a special administrative claim with the government agency before filing in court. This means that you may have much less time than you thought to pursue a settlement.
Second, collecting bus numbers, driver names, and witness testimony closely following the accident is vital for building a case against the city if you feel a Muni driver was at fault. Here at the Ladva Law Firm, we’re well-versed in the Sand Francisco laws relating to Muni buses and help our clients navigate the complex justice system. There’s no reason to go at it alone; if you’ve been injured by a Bay Area bus, please contact us today for a free case evaluation! (415) 296-8844
