San Francisco is one of the top tourist destinations in the country. This diverse city is home to world-famous landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz and is surrounded by cultural offerings from museums to the wine country in Napa and Sonoma. With such a high volume of visitors each year, accidents are bound to happen to those on vacation. Unfortunately, when tourists are injured, they often do not know where to turn or what their legal options are for collecting compensation for their injuries.
If you have been hurt while visiting the Bay Area, turn to the San Francisco tourist injury attorneys at the Dolan Law Firm, who provide local representation for people living outside of the area. We are here to focus on your legal needs so you can focus on your recovery at home. We also work on a contingency basis, which means you do not pay us unless we recover compensation for you. This allows you to level the playing field by obtaining top-quality lawyers for no upfront cost.

Helping Tourists Injured While Visiting Oakland, San Francisco, Sacramento and the Surrounding Areas
Tourists can be injured in any number of ways and file claims involving:
- Hotel liability
- Museum liability
- Winery tours
- Improper maintenance of streets, sidewalks and other commonly traveled areas
We also pursue tourist accident cases arising from:
- Trolley accidents
- Being struck by a taxi or while a passenger in a cab
- Pedestrian accidents
- Crashed involving small airlines on commuter trips, scenic tours or for other purposes
- Bus accidents
- Accidents on BART, Muni and other public transportation
- Ferry accidents
- Accidents on self-guided tours involving small vehicle transport
If a small vehicle transport leads you in the wrong direction, malfunctions and causes an accident, or is not seen by another vehicle, we can help you build a case for compensation. Additionally, in many other types of situations where tourists are injured, such as trolley or other public transit accidents, common carrier liability applies.
This means the municipality is required by law to use the highest degree of care and vigilance to ensure the safety of passengers. These common carriers also are required under the law to provide vehicles that are safe and fit to transport all passengers. This is a much higher duty than that required of a normal motorist who is required only to use “reasonable care.”
