$850,000 Jury Verdict for Union County Crash

$850,000 Jury Verdict, plus delay damages, plus post verdict interest, in a Union County bus/tractor trailer highway crash that occurred in on Route 80, White Deer Township, Union County. This client sustained extensive dental injuries as well as foot and knee injuries that did not require surgery. Ostroff Law sued Greyhound Bus Lines and it’s driver, in this case where a Greyhound bus slammed at a high speed into the rear of a tractor trailer truck on Route 80. This Greyhound Bus was operating a route between New York and Cleveland and at around 1:20am, the driver fell asleep at wheel with a bus load of passengers, injuring many, killing one. After a seven week highly contested Philadelphia jury trial against a large team of lawyers representing Greyhound and it’s driver, Ostroff Law won a verdict of $850,000 for this client, who was one of four Ostroff Law clients that were represented at this first trial. This $850,000 verdict included a $500,000 punitive damage portion, which was intended to punish Greyhound for it’s failure to adequately manage fatigue among it’s drivers. This client’s award was part of a $5.05 million verdict rendered to the four passengers that were represented by Ostroff law in this first and precedent setting trial and case against Greyhound Bus Lines. Prior to trial, CNN news network aired a story about this crash and the litigation that led to this trial, interviewing Ostroff Law partner Jon Ostroff, Esquire and one of the four Ostroff Law clients that was badly injured in this crash.
