San Francisco news reports that two residents suffered serious personal injuries following an accident involving a muni bus and an automobile. The driver of the car and a bicyclist were injured in the accident. The crash occurred around 8am in San Francisco's Richmond District.
Both individuals were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. The accident remains under investigation.
Muni busses have been involved in several accidents this year. If you or a loved one has been hurt in any type of personal injury accident, consulting with an experienced San Francisco accident lawyer is important to ensure your rights are protected. Further, when an incident involves a Muni bus additional considerations apply.
For example, where the city is involved it's important to determine whether any additional procedures affect your right to file a claim and secure compensation. Many times, a shortened statute of limitations may exist and require immediate action. Even if you aren't sure of the extent of your injuries or whether you want to pursue a claim, it's a good idea to protect your interests should you decide to pursue an action later. Here it is unknown whether any negligence or other potential legal claims may be implicated.
