Every year thousands of tourists visit San Francisco. Unfortunately, sometimes a dream vacation is ruined by an accident. With so many pedestrians and cars in San Francisco roadways, San Francisco is one of the leading cities in the nation in terms of pedestrian accidents.

The Importance Of Representation By A California Lawyer

If you are an out-of-state tourist and have been injured in San Francisco, you will need an attorney licensed in California and familiar with San Francisco courts to help you pursue your claim. It is always best to contact a San Francisco tourist attorney as soon as reasonably possible after an accident. Often times the other side will contact their insurance company immediately following an accident and a claims adjuster will begin investigating right away. Tourists are put at a disadvantage if they wait too long before contacting a San Francisco attorney that will conduct an investigation on their behalf.

Tourists visiting San Francisco can be subject to the following accidents and injuries:

  • MUNI accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Taxi accidents
  • Hotel accidents
  • Trolley accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Ferry accidents
  • Rental car accidents
  • Drowning
  • Sexual Assault

Tourists visiting from another state should be aware of certain California laws that may impact their rights. For example, in California the law presumes that an “invisible” or unmarked crosswalk exists at the intersection of every roadway where the intersecting roadways meet at approximately right angles. Cal. Vehicle Code section 275. Pedestrians have the right of way at all unmarked intersections and drivers must slow down and yield for pedestrians in unmarked crosswalks. With that said, pedestrians also have a legal obligation to use due care when they step off a curb. Cal. Vehicle Code section 21950.

Injuries caused by a land owner’s negligence can result in traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, tetraplegia, quadriplegia, fractures, drowning, and other serious physical and emotional damages.

The San Francisco tourist attorneys at Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., have experience working with experts such as neurologists, surgeons, orthopedics, contractors, life care planners, and economists, to help you recover as much compensation as you are entitled.
