Wrongful Death Settlement in MUNI Bus Case Includes Moscone Memorial
On March 11, 2004, Betty White was hit by a MUNI bus while walking her dog in the Marina district after the bus ran a stop sign. She died of massive brain injuries the following day. Because of our work, MUNI agreed to place a permanent memorial bench in Moscone Park, in addition to paying a substantial money settlement to her surviving family.
Betty was a highly regarded community activist. For more than 20 years, she worked tirelessly with the Marina Merchants Association, promoting and securing safer conditions and improved quality of life in the Marina district. A founding member of the Neighborhood Emergency Response Team and Safety Awareness for Everyone, Betty developed emergency preparedness and disaster relief protocols following the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. She worked to ensure safe access to the Moscone Playground and Recreation Center and had obtained $50,000 in seed money for a new playground at the park. At the time of her death, she was lobbying for more stop signs on Chestnut at Webster and Buchanan, out of concern for the safety of young mothers and children crossing the street to Moscone Park.
$3 Million Settlement — Fatal Bus Accident
Our client received a $3 million settlement for injuries suffered in a bus accident at a Salinas intersection. As our client, a 59-year-old woman, attempted to cross a street in the crosswalk, a Salinas-Monterrey County Transit bus driver accelerated through a left hand turn, not seeing our client. The front of his bus struck our client head on, knocking her to the ground and causing catastrophic and permanent brain injuries.
If you were injured because of bus driver negligence, you have a right to seek financial compensation. Contact the San Francisco bus accident attorneys at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger for a free consultation.
