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.
