Daly City Woman Suffers Serious Injuries after Being Struck by MUNI Bus

A frightening MUNI bus accident left a Daly City woman with serious injuries. The bus accident occurred on Saturday February 16, 2013, at approximately 4:30 p.m. According to published reports, an outbound No. 18 MUNI bus was traveling on Lake Merced Boulevard near John Muir Drive when it struck the victim.
The victim, identified as Eileen Barrett of Daly City, was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. At Matiasic Roth & Johnson LLP our thoughts and prayers remain with the victim in hopes that she makes a full and complete recovery.
There are specific requirements that must be followed when pursuing a personal injury claim against MUNI or any other public metro bus company. Among other legal concerns, there is an accelerated statute of limitations. A bus accident victim must comply with this and other strict deadlines to preserve their ability to obtain the compensation for their injuries and suffering.
The driver of the MUNI bus will undergo drug and alcohol testing to ascertain whether driver intoxication could have played a role in this terrible accident. Bus driver negligence can take many different forms including: driver inattention, driver texting, speeding, aggressive driving, and driver fatigue.
