San Francisco Wrongful Death

A wrongful death occurs when a person dies due to some sort of act of negligence or wrongdoing by another person. It can also apply to medical malpractice in relatively more uncommon cases. In opposition to something such as a murder, wrongful death is typically handled as a civil lawsuit. This means either a surviving family member(s) will directly bring it forth into a court of law or an official representative of the deceased person’s estate, to then decide upon an appropriate amount of compensation paid for by the defendant. A civil lawsuit of this nature can, and often is,…

Claude Wyle Interviewed on NPR about the Plea Bargain for Chris Bucchere

A San Francisco software developer pled guilty to felony vehicular manslaughter after crashing his bicycle into a pedestrian and killing him. The San Francisco D.A. says it’s the first felony conviction in the country for killing someone with a bike. Despite pleading to a felony, 37-year-old Chris Bucchere won’t spend any time in jail. He’s getting 3 years probation and 1,000 hours of community service. Is that a fair sentence? Here is what reportedly happened in this case—as I’ve discussed before on two different blog posts. Bucchere was riding his bike downhill in the Castro district at around 30 m.p.h.…

San Francisco MUNI Bus Safety Guards Reduce Injuries and Should Be Required

We assume that all MUNI busses in San Francisco are built with the strictest attention to safety, right? The San Francisco Municipal Railway system is an integral part of San Francisco’s infrastructure and MUNI busses transport thousands of people to and from work and home, and they keep our commerce alive and flowing smoothly. Of course, San Franciscans trust that our public transportation is safe and we travel confidently each time, right? What about the operators of the MUNI busses and trains? They are well trained to do their job, aren’t they? Many San Franciscans as well as visitors rely…
