Liability still to be established in Times Square bus crash

By now, many of you may have heard about the serious bus accident in Times Square that injured at least 15 people. The crash occurred just days ago when a Gray Line bus crashed into a double-decker tour bus then jumped the curb, travelling along the sidewalk before coming to rest at the edge of the plaza.

North Syracuse car crash remains a mystery

Sometimes it is immediately clear who caused a crash, like when a tractor-trailer driver falls asleep at the wheel, crosses into oncoming traffic and smashes headlong into a car. Or, when a driver is busy texting and fails to notice a stop sign, plowing into a left-turning motorcycle. Sometimes, however, fault is a little harder to find, at least at first glance, yet this does not mean that the family members of those killed in fatal car accidents shouldn't work with a wrongful death lawyer to file a lawsuit.

Broome County car crash leaves passenger seriously injured

What some people may not realize is that when a car accident happens, there doesn't have to be two cars involved to file a personal injury lawsuit. Passengers can also sue the drivers of the vehicles they are in if they suffer serious injuries in a car accident. Just like with other motorists on the road, the driver is responsible for doing everything possible to prevent a crash.

Teenager causes fatal accident on Long Island

It is still not entirely clear what happend earlier this month, but it appears that a teenager swerved into oncoming traffic, causing serious injuries and some of his or her passengers' deaths. Without knowing who was actually behind the wheel, it is impossible to say whether the driver survived the crash, or if he or she was one of the few survivors. Ultimately, however, the families of passengers who died or the fortunate few who survived the crash can still file wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits, respectively.

Syracuse man suffers head injury when driver cuts him off

It is vitally important that anyone on the road follows all traffic regulations. These laws are in place because they keep Syracuse drivers safe. While some people may not care if they put their lives at risk, it is more than just them who are in danger. When a driver follows too closely or fails to stop at a red light, he or she is putting everyone else on the road's lives at risk. Though it is absolutely tragic when an accident happens because one driver just wouldn't follow the law, an injured driver can file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver responsible for the crash.
