$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 the 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.

Our verdict was recognized as:

  • the #1 largest verdict ever awarded against Greyhound in the company’s corporate history
  • the #1 largest accident verdict awarded in Texas
  • the #1 largest verdict awarded in Dallas County

$6 Million Settlement with for Passengers Injured in Fatigue Related Bus Crash

Most recently, our attorneys successfully negotiated a $6 Million Settlement on behalf of several passengers who were injured when the 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 to first law firm in reported history to obtain a court order that required a commercial driver to undergo testing for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

The study, as suspected, confirmed that the driver had “moderate to severe” Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a condition which disqualified the driver from driving the bus on the night of the collision.

In addition to achieving media attention from CBS and news stations across the country, 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 were fully compensated for their injuries, our 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.

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 victories have sent the message that safety is (and should always be) a priority, that bus passengers, like airplane passengers, are entitled to arrive at their destinations safely, and that inexperienced, fatigued and medically unqualified drivers will never be tolerated.

I hired Zehl when I was severely injured doing a Plug and Abandonment job offshore. I'm glad I did, they were incredible. They walked me through every step of the case, made sure that I got to the best doctors, and were always there for me when I was having trouble paying bills when the case was pending. I always felt that I was in good hands and well taken care of, which relieved a lot of my stress and helped put me at ease. Eric and the team at Zehl and Associates represented my best interests, I highly recommend them.

I was hesitant to file a lawsuit when I was injured at work, because I didn't know what to expect and my company kept telling me that "they were going to take care of me." But the medical bills kept piling up, I wasn't able to work and make money to support my family. Eric Allen and the staff at Zehl put me at ease about the process, kept me to up date about what was going on, and devoted all their resources to making sure that I had the money I needed to pay all my medical expenses and take care of myself and my family. I can honestly say that working with Eric, Ryan and the Zehl team was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Thank you.

After I was injured at a chemical plant, I needed time to recover from my injuries and a lawyer who could stand up for me and my family against my company. Ryan Zehl was recommended to me from a coworker. Ryan worked hard to prepare my case and kept me and my family in the loop through the entire process. At the end they were able to get me a settlement that was much more than we had expected. I’d recommend Ryan and the team at Zehl to anyone who needs an injury lawyer who’s aggressive, honest and dedicated to protecting their clients.

Thanks to the hard work from Ryan and his team, a dangerous product that could have hurt thousands of people is now off the street. Even though I suffered from the lack of safety checks from this product, I am happy to have “taken the bullet”, to keep other people safe. Special thanks to Tommy Servos, who kept me informed through out the whole trial and helped me get a record recovery!

I grew up in Texas and went to work on an oil rig just like my dad did. It was a point of pride to follow in the same career path as my father, but no one warned me about the constant pending danger of being on the rig. My team and I are professionals that follow the rules and keep safety as priority number 1. But there are some factors to this job that can’t be controlled. Just like the BP Deep Water Horizon oil spill, my rig suffered an explosion due to the lack of up keep and maintenance from our superiors. Ryan Zehl came to our aid to get the compensation my crew and I needed. Having a Houston personal injury attorney from back home represent us was truly a personal and eye opening experience. He truly cared about us and thanks to him, I can recover with my family and the safety precautions on the rig have never been tighter.

Husband was killed at a refinery to the lack of safety checks performed by the company he worked for. When I found out he was gone I was so devastated and scared for our family I wasn’t sure what the next step would be. At first I thought his company would do the right thing and take care of us. But was I wrong. They tried to say we could only recover worker’s comp and had no claim against the company. I hired Ryan because of their experience with plant and refinery accident cases. I was so impressed at how professional and caring Ryan and his entire team were. They would call to check on me and my kids and always made sure I had money to pay bills and get presents for my kids on there birthdays and at Christmas. I don’t know where we’d be without there help. Because of Ryan and his team, I was able to pay off the house, put a trust together for my kids to make sure they’re able to pay for college, and never have to worry about having enough money to take care of myself and the kids again. We are so grateful for everything they did for us. Thank you.

I came to Zehl Law Firm after I was injured in a car accident. They made me feel comfortable and explained things so I understood what to expect. Along with excellent communication. They were always quick to respond and update me on everything. Kelvin Hayes did a great job with my case and I would be happy to refer him to anyone looking for a auto injury lawyer.

I highly recommend Zehl Law! When I was injured on the job, I reached out to Ryan’s office and was greeted with support. I was well taken and care of and really appreciate how the law firm professionals went above and beyond their call of duty to help me. Now I can recover without having to worry about money until I am well enough to get back on the job. Thanks guys!
