Nassau County bus stop crash

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.
