An out of control car caused a Nassau County bus stop crash.  Four people were injured in the crash as reported by News 12. Faulty equipment and failure to maintain a motor vehicle can lead to accidents like the one in New Hyde Park when a blown tire caused a car to crash into a bus stop.  People may not realize that, depending on the reasons for the tire failure, the owner and driver can be liable for injuries caused by faulty equipment or maintenance failures in New York motor vehicles.

Many times, car crashes and the resulting liability is clear cut.  Other times it is very difficult to determine where the fault lies in car crashes.  Juries are taxed with the burden of deciding how to apportion fault in personal injury trials.  It is almost impossible to predict jury outcomes and any lawyer will tell you that.  Therefore it makes logical sense to spend time maintaining your motor vehicles and do your very best to avoid preventable car crashes.

A pedestrian knockdown is one type of personal injury case that is growing in number on Long Island.  A pedestrian knockdown is when an individual is struck by a motor vehicle and suffers injuries.  A pedestrian knockdown does not necessarily imply criminal conduct such as that in a hit and run, texting while driving or DWI incidents; although they can.  Often times, pedestrian knockdown cases arise out of nothing more than a mere accident.  Just the latest example of this type of accident occurred in Copiague and was reported by News 12.

Whether arising out of criminal conduct or not, pedestrian knockdown cases almost always result in personal injuries.  It is common sense that the human body is not built to withstand an impact from a motor vehicle in motion.  Therefore, when a pedestrian knockdown occurs, the victim has anxiety and a lot of questions.  It is important to understand that a personal injury attorney can assist you in answering questions such as how to seek medical advice, whose insurance pays for medical treatment, how liability for the accident is assessed and determining if a personal injury lawsuit should be commenced.  Having answers to these questions will allow the victim to focus all of their energy on recovering and calm the concerns of their family.  Most people often underestimate the importance of consulting with a personal injury attorney.  It is important to remember that being injured in an accident is very traumatic and scary.  The experience is exacerbated by not knowing how to handle the “fall-out” from the accident or lessened by having people around you who do.
