If you have been injured in a crossFwalk or roadway, the attorneys at BV Law will help you receive the full and fair monetary compensation you are owed. We have handled many different kinds of pedestrian injury cases involving both tourists and residents.
Injuries Can Be Caused by Public Transportation
Pedestrian accidents are often caused by the many different types of public transportation in the San Francisco Bay Area metro area, including:
- MUNI: San Francisco Municipal Railways
- BART: Bay Area Rapid Transit
- Cable car trolleys
- SamTrans: San Mateo County Transit District, bus lines
- AC Transit: Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District, bus lines
Pedestrians have rights just like motorists, but have none of the protection. Crossing a street in Oakland or San Francisco can be a dangerous task, even when given the right-of-way by a crosswalk and lighted street signs. Often, distracted driving, drunk driving, driving while talking on a cell phone or aggressive driving can cause accidents even in a crosswalk. If you are injured, you should seek an experienced attorney and discuss your case.
