Family Of San Francisco Woman Fatally Injured By Muni Bus To File Lawsuit

According to the San Francisco examiner, the family of Emily Dunn, a 23-year-old woman struck by a Muni bus plans to file a personal injury lawsuit this week against the City of San Francisco, including the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which handles Muni. The pedestrian accident occurred when Dunn was crossing Hartford in the Castro District. A Muni shuttle bus fatally struck her. An investigation reveals that the bus operator was driving on the wrong side of the street when the accident occurred.

In a city such as San Francisco pedestrians, motor vehicles – including cars and busses - and bicyclists are all in close proximity to each other, increasing the risk of pedestrian accidents. Injuries from pedestrian accidents are often serious and may include such catastrophic injuries as head and brain injuries, paralysis and as in this case, death. Generally, in pedestrian/motor vehicle collisions, the operator of the vehicle is found responsible for the accident and may be required to compensate the victim or his or her family for the damages. This may include medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

It is important to have a skilled San Francisco pedestrian accident attorney on your side - victims of devastating personal injury accidents who don't seek legal counsel may have difficulty paying for the staggering medical bills the arise from surgeries, treatment and recovery.

If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of the negligence or carelessness of another, it is important to contact a knowledgeable San Francisco personal injury attorney immediately. At Bostwick & Peterson, we have years of experience helping the families and victims of negligence obtain the compensation they deserve.
