San Francisco Public Transit Injury Attorneys
Protecting Victims Throughout California, Nevada and Arizona
Have you been injured in a collision with or as a passenger on a public transit vehicle? The broader term “public transit” includes buses, trains (elevated, subway and ground) ferries, and cable cars. Public transit authorities are governmental agencies, and may have legal immunity, a shorter time within which to bring suit, and administrative remedies which must be strictly complied with.. Due to the complex issues regarding sovereign immunity and the severe types of injuries that are often seen in public transit accidents, it is important to work with a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney.
When you come to the Brandi Law Firm, you will find the type of knowledgeable, seasoned attorneys that you need when you or a loved one has been hurt in a collision with or as a passenger on a public transit vehicle.
With over 70 years of combined legal experience, we have seen many different types of public transit accidents and the injuries resulting from them. For example, you or a loved one may have been injured when your vehicle collided with a bus, train or cable car. On the other hand, you may have been injured as a passenger when the public transit vehicle you were riding on was involved in an accident or derailment. No matter how your injuries came about, if they were caused by public transit negligence, we can help you fight for the compensation you need to recover.

Skillfully Representing People Injured by Public Transit Authorities
Since our offices are based in San Francisco, we know that people in the Bay Area rely on a variety of mass transit options, including Muni, BART, SamTrans, Golden Gate Transit, Golden Gate Ferry, AC Transit and cable cars. Although these and other public transit systems offer many obvious benefits, the size of the vehicles, the speed with which they move and the fact that passengers are not individually seat-belted means that there is ample opportunity for injuries to occur.
Over the years, we have handled many claims against public transit authorities and have developed a solid reputation of success with transit industry insiders. In addition to the personal attention attorneys at the Brandi Law Firm give to each client, we also prepare each case as if it were going to trial. Even knowing that the majority of personal injury (including those received in public transit accidents) cases settle, we thoroughly investigate and diligently prepare each one we handle. Conscientious preparation gives us the knowledge necessary to fully understand the true value of our clients’ cases. This knowledge provides the basis for aggressive negotiation or a vigorous presentation of the case at trial.
If you have been injured while riding on a public transit vehicle (whether the vehicle collided with another, had a mechanical failure or derailed), or as a passenger in a private vehicle, we can effectively represent you.
