The Risk of Accidents in San Francisco
San Francisco is a large, famous city known for unique neighborhoods, steep hills, Victorian architecture, and culture. While it seems idyllic to tourists, it’s simply home to many. But as with any city, it has its dangers. Steep hills can be slick, leading to slip and falls. High pedestrian and bicycle traffic can lead to pedestrian or bicycle crashes, and late-night partiers cause drunk driving accidents.
San Francisco is dedicated to its vision of zero traffic fatalities, though it isn’t there yet. In 2020, there were 16 vehicle or motorcycle deaths, 11 pedestrian deaths, and two bicycle deaths. If you lost a loved one in a crash recently, don’t hesitate to reach out to our wrongful death lawyers.
