NBC News reports that one person suffered personal injuries in a Muni bus
accident late last week. According to reports, a car and truck collided
with the Muni bus, leading to minor damage.
Whenever an accident occurs involving the San Francisco Municipal Railway
System (Muni), whether with one of its buses, trains or trolleys, several
distinct procedural steps exist that must be followed to ensure you receive
compensation for any damage caused by the Muni vehicle. For example, you
must file a claim for your loss within 6 months of the accident. Many
people mistakenly believe that they have more time. However, it is critical
you act right away to preserve your right to file a civil lawsuit and
receive compensation. Even if you have not yet determined the full extent
of harm caused by the accident, filing a claim right away is important
in order to protect yourself. Also, it is advisable to speak to a private
personal injury lawyer who can represent your interests, rather than a
Muni investigator who may have a conflict of interest.
For more information or if you have been involved in any type of motor
vehicle accident involving a Muni affiliated vehicle, it is important
to speak with an experienced accident lawyer right away. For more information,
