At the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel, we represent passengers and pedestrians who have suffered serious injuries involving Bay Area public transportation. Each skilled San Francisco MUNI bus accident lawyer at the firm provides a strong voice for people with claims against public transportation systems in San Francisco and the East Bay, including the San Francisco MUNI and the A/C Transit.
Bus collisions are a fact of life in the busy streets of San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. According to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, there were more than 3,100 injury collisions and 28 fatal collisions in 2011. Of these, one-third were caused by broadsides and one-fifth were caused by unsafe speed. Pedestrians were injured in more than 840 collisions, representing one fourth of all injuries, and bicycles were involved in 630 collisions, or about one fifth of injury accidents.
Our personal injury attorneys assist pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers and passengers of other vehicles, and passengers of busses, trolleys, streetcars and light rail in obtaining compensation for injuries caused because of all type of public transportation negligence:
When a passenger or a pedestrian is injured in an accident involving the San Francisco Municipal Railway (MUNI), a written personal injury claim must be filed within six months of the incident and the claim must comply with a complicated web of controlling statutes. Our attorneys thoroughly understand the complexities of filing a claim against San Francisco MUNI and the A/C Transit. We provide thorough representation throughout the process to recover fair compensation on your behalf for the damages you have wrongfully suffered.
If you were injured in a San Francisco MUNI accident caused by the negligence of a MUNI driver, the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel has the experience and knowledge to guide you through your complex claim.
