Firm Wins Settlement for Horrific Bus Crash Victims
6 passengers, including a middle school student, were traveling along Interstate 85 in North Carolina when their bus driver fell asleep at the wheel, steering them into another vehicle and seriously maiming all on board. As a result of the Defendant’s negligent driving and their resulting injuries, our lawyers managed to obtain a settlement amount of $3 million to compensate for ongoing medical expenses and loss of earnings. The Plaintiffs’ injuries included brain damage, muscle and nerve damage resulting from deep facial lacerations, spine, rib and ankle fractures, and bone marrow edema among dozens of other injuries, with one victim being placed in a full body cast.
When a jury rules like this in a sexual harrasment case, they know that it was international, and they also know that the reason this manager was able to get away with this was that the company had to be looking the other way."
