Bike Accidents – Public Transportation
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
As a bicyclist in northern California, you have as much right to the road as any motor vehicle, including cars, trucks, buses, delivery vans and light-rails. Unfortunately, on busy thoroughfares in many cities, bus drivers and light-rail operators often don’t take the necessary care to be aware of cyclists. If you have been injured on a bicycle because of a collision or accident involving public transportation, you want an experienced and aggressive personal injury lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation for all your injuries.

Recent Examples of How We Have Helped Our Personal Injury Clients
We represented the surviving husband and two college-age children of a 50 year-old woman who was crossing the street within a crosswalk, when she was struck and killed by a SamTrans bus. We were able to negotiate the settlement after a year of litigation.
We represented a 29-year-old Muni bus passenger who was lifted from his seat by the bus driver and tossed out the front doors onto the street. The driver claimed that when our client placed his fare in the box, he hit the driver’s hand. Our investigation discovered that the bus driver was a convicted violent felon with a history of allegedly attacking other Muni patrons. Our client suffered a fractured wrist and thumb and significant psychological injury.
