Kreindler Successfully Resolves All Cases Arising from Fatal Greyhound Bus Crash Near Elizabethtown, New York
Kreindler partners Jim Kreindler, Megan Wolfe Benett, and Noah Kushlefsky were successful in resolving all cases In in a multi-million dollar settlement agreement. Attorney Kushlefsky was named by the court as Lead Counsel.
A Greyhound bus traveling from Albany, New York, to Montreal, Canada, slammed through a median guardrail and rolled down an embankment, killing the driver and four passengers. Forty-eight other passengers were injured in the tragic crash which occurred in the Adirondack Mountains.
Kreindler’s prosecution focused on a punctured Goodyear front tire that had a slow leak. Greyhound maintenance inspectors had either not noticed or failed to correct the damaged tire. The tire over-heated as a result of the slow leak and blew causing the bus to roll over and crash.
