I recently learned that on Tuesday, February 14, 2012, a pedestrian was pinned underneath a shuttle busand pinned underneath the bus for a long period of time. This bus pedestrian accident occurred in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood at around 2:18 p.m. at Eddy and Leavenworth Streets.

Risks and Legal Remedies for Bay Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of San Francisco’s most famous landmarks and, like Alcatraz, an extremely popular tourist destination. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most hazardous places for pedestrians and bikers because of the mix of avid cyclists, leisure bikers and pedestrians on the bridge’s pathways. According to an article in the Contra Costa Times, ambulances responded to bicycle accidents on the Golden Gate Bridge an average of once a month between 2000 and 2009. Serious injuries often result from bicycle accidents, especially in places like the bridge, where tourists frequently stop to take photos amid…
