Under Texas law, a party filing a personal injury lawsuit must specify what range of compensation they are requesting.  There are several levels of compensation, and the highest level is compensation of any amount over $1,000,000.

VB Attorneys filed the first lawsuit in Texas against Greyhound for the I 80 bus crash in Pennsylvania, and specified a compensation range in excess of $1,000,000.  

In reality, the compensation that will need to be paid by Greyhound in this lawsuit will greatly exceed this amount, based on this passenger's numerous catastrophic injuries.  This passenger remains hospitalized at Geisinger Medical Center in central Pennsylvania, and it remains unclear when she may be discharged.  She has undergone several surgeries already, and more are pending.

Thanks for your comment. We are in the process of investigating this crash. Once we complete our preliminary inspection of the accident scene, vehicles and black boxes, then we will move on to other aspects of our investigation, which will include other complaints directed at Greyhound.

Best of luck in the suit. I am a university professor that follows Greyhound, and personally believes this is one of the worst companies in the US (Gift Ticket Fees, horrible customer service, etc.) I highly recommend that your firm track the numerous complaints on Greyhound's Facebook Wall. For instance, a couple of days ago, a terminal manager kicked people out on the street to wait for a bus in sub-freeing temperatures. I would also appreciate a link to the state of TX website that tracks court cases; I'd like to follow this one carefully. Good luck! Shawn Ambrose
