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 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.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


Abuse & Molestation

 Priests, ministers, church officials and workers, coaches, teachers, day care workers, park rangers, and other trusted adults who sexually molest children, ruin lives and cause irreparable psychological damage.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.



Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
