Our client, who was catastrophically injured when a Greyhound bus crashed into the back of an 18-wheeler on I-80 in Pennsylvania on October 9, 2013, was justifiably concerned about who would pay her hospital bills that kept getting larger and larger every day. Someone at the hospital told her that Greyhound said they would "take care of" her bills.
We have seen Greyhound use this tactic in prior bus accident cases. They will make you think they are going to pay all of your medical bills, no matter what. This gets your guard down and makes you think you may not need to hire a lawyer—and this is when Greyhound pounces.
They will ask you to give a "recorded statement." They ask this in a very nice way, but they don't tell you that their only reason for wanting this from you is so they can use it against you later.
They may also ask you to "sign some forms." They will sneak some forms in there that you definitely do not have to sign. But, because you have not hired counsel, you don't know this. Before you know it, you have signed away all of your legal rights.
Don't Become A Victim To Greyhound's Tactics
Do you really believe Greyhound is just going to pay all of your hospital bills? No way. Once they get what they want from you in terms of diluting or ruining your claim, then they start nit-picking your medical bills. They will claim the prices are too high, that some of the services were not necessary, and find a ton of other excuses to avoid paying your full hospital bills. At the end of the day, you are left owing perhaps half of your hospital bill—which could amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars—and Greyhound walks away with ammunition to destroy your claim once you hire an attorney and file suit.
The best thing you can do right now is this: find a qualified attorney to handle your case against Greyhound.
