Have You Been Injured in an Unsafe Intersection? We're Committed to Safeguarding Your Rights.

Unsafe Intersections

If you were involved in a collision in an intersection, or if you were knocked down while crossing the street, speak with a San Francisco pedestrian and bicycle accident lawyer from Matiasic & Johnson LLP as soon as possible. In some cases, we are able to file a claim against the city or other government entities for not addressing an unsafe condition that led to your accident.

We have the skill and litigation experience that is needed to achieve significant results. In fact, we are members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum® because we have helped past clients receive million-dollar settlements after an accident involving third-party negligence.

Pedestrian Safety Solutions in San Francisco

Some safety features in San Francisco have been improved to increase safety standards in the city of San Francisco. Public funding has helped encourage city planners and city leaders to proactively create safer streets for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Common intersection safety solutions have included:

  • Installation of corner bulbs, flashing beacons, and crosswalk countdown tickers
  • Leading pedestrian intervals
  • Automated speed enforcement and regulation
  • Road diets (reducing the number of lanes in cross-sections)
  • Advance stop lines and yield signs
  • Roadway safety lighting and nighttime visibility reflectors
  • Pedestrian refuge islands
  • Turn prohibition signs and protected left turns
  • Speed tables and raised crosswalks
  • Traffic circles, roundabouts and chicanes
  • Speed bumps to regulate traffic speeding issues

Despite many efforts to increase street safety, city planners still cannot control driver negligence. Nearly all reported pedestrian accidents are caused by negligent drivers who disregard the law by speeding, failing to yield, and failing to check for cleared intersections or walkways before turning left.
