MUNI is operated by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which is a semi-independent agency of the city of San Francisco. It is ultimately responsible for the safe operation of this transit system. When MUNI accidents and injuries occur as a result of another party’s negligence or misconduct, injured persons or the families of those who died may be able to seek redress. At Mary Alexander & Associates, P.C., our lawyers advocate for clients who suffered injuries or whose loved ones died as a result of negligence involving a streetcar, bus or trolley. We file lawsuits and participate in pretrial negotiations in pursuit of fair compensation for injured clients.

- Pedestrian-transit accidents

- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
