We are taking our client’s case to trial against Greyhound in Philadelphia federal court at the end of this month. She was very seriously injured when Greyhound’s bus driver fell asleep and crashed the bus into the back of an 18 wheeler on I-80 in Pennsylvania. The driver fell asleep because Greyhound chooses not to follow its own safety rule that says drivers should stop every 150 miles or 3 hours in order to refresh themselves. That rule has been in place for over 15 years and Greyhound still has not brought its master bus schedule into compliance.
Not surprisingly, two juries in other states have already awarded tens of millions against Greyhound for other passengers injured in this same crash, including substantial punitive damages. Read more about this bus crash and the related litigation against Greyhound in this CNN article.
