San Francisco Bus Accident Lawyers
San Francisco has a unique and complex network of public transportation systems, and the AC Transit bus line actually connects with several other public and private bus and rail systems, including three ferry terminals, six Amtrak stations and 21 different BART stations. As with all public transportation accidents you are required to notify the government agency involved in advance of filing a tort claim. Furthermore, you have only a six month statute of limitations time frame to file a government claim, whereas typically there is a two year statute of limitations to file a tort claim against a private company or individual.
