Ryan Zehl won a $18 million verdict on behalf of a 24-year-old woman who was injured when a Greyhound bus rolled over after losing control on icy roads. The 3 week trial took place in Dallas County, Texas, the home of Greyhound’s corporate headquarters.
Mr. Zehl successfully argued that Greyhound hired an inadequately trained driver who failed to control his speed in bad weather, causing the bus to lose control and rollover.
The jury awarded over 18 million, which included punitive damages, after finding that Greyhound was grossly negligent in allowing an unqualified driver behind the wheel.
The verdict is the #1 Largest Verdict in Greyhound’s Corporate History.
