Six people sustained personal injuries this past week in a Muni bus collision with a trolley at the intersection of 6th and Market streets, according to reports. The fire department was called, and after an evaluation of the injuries, two people were taken to nearby hospitals.
Whenever an accident occurs, especially if it involves a city owned vehicle, it is important to contact a San Francisco personal injury lawyer immediately. Often, the time for filing a claim when a city or municipality is potentially at faulty is shorter than for private citizens. As such, it is important to contact a dedicated personal injury attorney immediately to begin an investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding an incident.
Other considerations if you have been in an accident, after obtaining medical attention if necessary, include doing your best to document the circumstances, such as taking photos of any damage, and exchanging information with the other driver, such as names, phone numbers and insurance information.
