Cable Car Accidents

San Francisco’s cable cars are an iconic part of the city, famous in movies, paintings, and books. Individuals travel from all around the world to take a ride on the cable cars! They have been around for almost a century and were created to replace horse-drawn vehicles on the steep hills of San Francisco. While these cars are great for transportation and sightseeing, they can also cause accidents, just like any other vehicle on the road.

Cable Car Accidents: Risks and Injuries

Cable car accidents can result in injuries that are similar to those sustained in other large vehicle or public transportation accidents. Due to the lack of restraints (i.e. seatbelts) and proper safety gear (ie helmets), a collision can have devastating effects, causing serious injuries. The injuries can range from strains to breaks and even brain damage.

Statute of Limitations – Small amount of time to file a claim

It’s crucial to know that if you are injured in a cable car accident, in most cases, you only have six months to file a personal injury claim against public entities, such as the City and County of San Francisco or MUNI. To avoid missing out on compensation, it is essential to speak to an experienced attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
