The city of Burlingame is located in the San Francisco Peninsula and runs along a large stretch of the San Francisco Bay.

A Burlingame family recently entered into a settlement agreement with Caltrain, SamTrans, Amtrak and other agencies for the wrongful death of their son. The boy was hit and killed by a train while he was cross the train tracks after being dropped off by a bus. Lawyers for the family argued that the bus agency, SamTrans, was liable for the boy’s death because of the location of the bus stop near the train tracks. The terms of the settlement that the Burlingame family negotiated with the agencies remains confidential.
Burlingame is served by the Superior Court of San Mateo County, which has branches throughout the county. If your case is a civil case, you might head to South San Francisco if you live in the northern part of the county; but if you have criminal charges against you, you will have to report to the Hall of Justice in Redwood City. You want to make sure your attorney is comfortable in any of these court locations.
