Personal Injury Cases are Common in the Bay Area
Tourism to the San Francisco area has been on the rise over the last decade. With more than 25 million visitors
to the area each year, it is unsurprising that the rates of personal injury cases continue to increase. But what should both tourists and locals be concerned about? Here are three common ways someone may sustain an injury in the Bay Area.
1. Bay Area Roads
It’s no secret that the San Francisco Bay Area has a significant amount of car accidents each year. From major highways to bridges and busy intersections, there is no shortage of potential hazards on the roads. In fact, reports from the last five years show that even some of the most unlikely roads
are becoming more dangerous.
Ferry usage has skyrocketed since 2012 with almost a 94% increase in ridership for the San Francisco Bay Ferry
alone. However, this also means that the probability of accidents or injuries from ferry usage is increasing as well. From potential slip and fall hazards, mechanical failure, and lack of safety measures and equipment — it’s unsurprising that more people are experiencing injuries from these waterway trips.
3. Tourist Hotspots
Major tourist attractions in the Bay Area like Lombard Street, the Golden Gate Bridge, beaches, and the zoos/aquariums also pose a risk for both visitors and locals in the region. Motor vehicle accidents and premises liability concerns can contribute greatly to the injuries someone may sustain.
