We are pedestrian accident lawyers and we take our mission as advocates for pedestrian (and bicyclist) safety to heart, and we think you’ll agree with us when we say the increase in pedestrian fatalities is something to speak up about.
Over the past 30 years, pedestrian fatalities have been increasing in the United States and California is one of the states with the most fatalities.
Dog bite injuries are unfortunately very common which means dog bite lawsuits happen more often than you might think. In fact, dog bites are the most common claim for liability on homeowner insurance policies according to the Insurance Information Institute. But keep in mind, not all homeowner policies include provisions for dog bites and it’s a good idea to check your policy if you own a dog.
San Francisco has a great public transportation system network that is so effective, many San Francisco residents don’t even own a car! In 2014, a study found 88% of all new households (people who moved to San Francisco since 2000) didn’t own a car (source).
A rideshare accident lawyer is someone we hope you will never need, but we understand why we’re needed.

Since its inception, UBER has walked a fine line between
maintaining they are just a tech company, not a livery service like taxis, and
promoting how “safe” it is to use UBER.
Their website now sports a dedicated tab called “Safety” where they
proudly tout their commitment to safety, all the while cleverly sidestepping
the issues of how they ensure their drivers engage in safe driving practices
and what, if anything, UBER does to even evaluate whether the influx of UBER
drivers adversely affects the safety of vulnerable users of roads like
pedestrians, cyclists, the disabled or the elderly.
Summer is here and with the extra hours of sunshine comes
the heat! In San Francisco, a “hot” day

our Paso Robles office and in other scenic riding locations on the Central Coast,
temperatures can easily surpass 100 degrees.

Most cyclist fatalities in urban and rural areas occur in 45
mph zones (link to other blog on fatalities); however, the likelihood of
sustaining a survivable injury as a pedestrian or cyclist in a 45 mph zone is
not the same.
What is the same is
the speed limit where the most injuries occur: 25 mph.
