$18.8 Million Verdict against Greyhound Bus Lines
After a three week trial, a Dallas County jury awarded our client and another injured passenger $18.8 Million for injuries they received when their Greyhound bus lost control and rolled over while traveling over 60 mph. The week before trial, Greyhound refused to offer our client more than $150,000 to settle the case.

- the #1 largest verdict ever awarded against Greyhound in the company’s history

$6 Million Settlement for Passengers Injured in Fatigue Related Greyhound Crash
Most recently, our attorneys successfully negotiated a $6 Million Settlement on behalf of several passengers who were injured when their bus driver—who, only weeks earlier, had been ordered to undergo a sleep study by a Department of Transportation (DOT) doctor who suspected the driver of suffering from chronic fatigue and Obstructive Sleep Apnea—lost control of the bus while traveling on I-75 outside of Cincinnati at approximately 3 am.
The bus came to rest in a nearby cornfield after driving through a fence, hitting a tree, and flipping over.
After learning that Greyhound had chosen to ignore the DOT doctor’s recommendation to test the driver, Zehl & Associates became the first law firm in history to obtain a court order that required a commercial driver to undergo overnight sleep testing for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
The study, as suspected, confirmed that the Greyhound bus driver had “moderate to severe” Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a condition which disqualified him from driving the bus or any other commercial vehicle.
The settlement has prompted the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to reevaluate the criteria for screening commercial drivers for dangerous medical conditions, like Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Committed to Improving Bus Passenger Safety
In addition to ensuring that our clients and their families are fully compensated for their injuries, our record-setting victories have prompted a number of important safety changes at Greyhound—and the bus industry as a whole—that have substantially reduced the number of fatigue related crashes and made the roads safer for both bus passengers and other drivers who share the road with them.
When bus companies, like Greyhound, place profit above passenger safety, they are placing passenger lives, as well as the lives of every other driver on the road, at serious risk.
Our record-setting verdicts and settlements have sent the message that safety is (and always should be) the top priority, that bus passengers, like airplane passengers, are entitled to arrive at their destinations safely, and that it’s never acceptable to allow inexperienced, fatigued and medically unqualified drivers on the road.
