The San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni) operates cable cars, light rail vehicles and, of course, buses in the San Francisco area. In recent years, Muni daily ridership averaged more than 480,000 unlinked trips. Unfortunately, some of these riders suffer injuries as the result of negligence on the part of Muni or its employees.
If you have been injured in an accident involving Muni buses or other Muni-run transportation, you need to turn to an attorney who understands how to maximize compensation in cases involving entities such as Muni. At Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, we have achieved millions of dollars in settlements in Muni bus accident cases.
