    Survivor guide: Visiting the Golden Gate Bridge

    One of San Francisco’s most iconic sights, and rated as one of the most beautiful spans in the world, the Golden Gate Bridge regularly attracts millions of visitors. Open to vehicles 24 hours a day, the bridge is only open to pedestrians during daylight hours. This means everyone participating in a guided walking tour or taking a stroll along the bridge is likely to mingle with thousands of others visiting at the same time.

    Road traffic accidents on the Golden Gate Bridge

    While only certain parts of the Golden Gate Bridge can be accessed by pedestrians at any given time, traffic is usually busy. The mixture of vehicles, and thousands of visitors milling about, occasionally means that accidents will happen. If you are the victim of such an accident as a pedestrian, driver or passenger, you may be eligible to claim for compensation.

    Car accident claims

    Eligibility to claim depends on two main factors. The first is when the incident occurred. To qualify for compensation claims, injuries must have been incurred within 36 months preceding the claim. The second factor is whether the traffic accident was the fault of the injured party or someone else. Claims can only be brought forward if responsibility for the vehicle accident lies with someone else.

    Passenger injury compensation

    Vehicles’ passengers, injured in road accidents, typically have little difficulty in proving that the accident causing their injury was not their fault. The vehicle in which you were injured may be a private car, a cab, or a coach. Injuries by accidents involving coaches, subways or other trains, boats, or planes may equally entitle you to travel accident compensation.

    How to claim

    To claim for traffic accident compensation, you should first of all find out whether you really have a right to claim. Advisers of Accident Advice Helpline are available 24 hours, Monday to Sunday on a free-phone number. Calls to this help line are confidential and will not place potential claimants under any obligation.
