$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 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 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.

You can view a recent interview about the settlement here.

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 wanted to express my outmost gratitude and appreciation to the Zehl&Associates law firm for the excellent representation in my accident case in December 2016; even though it was a difficult case I could not have been more pleased with how they handled everything. They are very knowledgeable and clearly the top in their field. I would highly recommend them. Thanks Zehl&Associates.

I don’t think I can ever be thankful enough for Lamar DeLong. I’m a single mom, on my way home from work two weeks after I started my new job and two weeks after graduating from college, I was in a horrible car accident. My car was totaled and I was really badly hurt. Lamar took my case and didn’t stop until I was going to be fully taken care of. I now will have little worries about taking the time off of work to get the back and knee surgery I desperately need to be able to function normally. I’m 26, I’m a single parent and Lamar kept that in mind. Zehl&Associates really took care of me. Especially being in completely different cities. A thank you won’t be enough for this firm treating me like family and making sure I was taken care of. Thank you Lamar and all the staff involved in my case.

Ryan Zehl is the best, very nice, helpful, and compassionate. His firm works very hard to help you! I hired them because my brother was killed on a work site, the firm's track record, and they seemed to really care about their clients and cases. Thank you all at Zehl & Associates for your help.

Theres not enough stars to rate the true quality on here! Everything I've heard about lawyers went out the window when Eric took time on Father's day of all days to contact me back and help assist me with a settlement. I was in desperate need of legal advice & guidance and running out of time. Eric was quick, efficient, HONEST, and did more than beyond more to make sure I was legally protected & being treated fairly. I was at my giving up point on everything until that first conversation with Eric. Zehl Law definitely breaks the mold on lawyers. He was more interested in protecting me than trying to take money from me. Which is a rare thing to find in any industry or just people in general, which has definitely been my case involving everything else in my life. But of all people, a lawyer restored my faith in humanity itself. Thank you for that. Thank you for everything! You've been more than amazing!!!

Zehl and Associates took amazing care of me after my accident in January 2018. Lamar was kind, listened to all my fears, and helped me through the process of a lawsuit. I truly appreciate the care the office staff took with me whenever I called. Fantastic firm who were able to settle my case without ever stepping foot in court!

Zehl has been amazing and extremely helpful to our family since my husband was incolved in a plant expolosion in 2015. Everyone from the owner of the firm, Ryan, to each and everyone that has answered the phone has always been more than willing to help in anyway possible. The staff always checked on our family to be sure we had all we needed and showed to really care! I would recommend Zehl and associates to anyone looking for a lawyer to fight a good fight and make sure all clients’ needs are met at the same time!
