Union County, Pennsylvania

$17 million+ verdict and paid settlements in recoveries for a group of clients against Greyhound Bus Company, after they tried to blame a small, independently-owned truck company for a Union County, PA crash. Ostroff Injury Law spent six weeks on trial against Greyhound and proved they were the sole cause of this crash. Not only did the jury agree with Ostroff, they rendered a verdict that included $2million extra as a punishment to Greyhound.

We represented injured passengers from all over America and the world against Greyhound, the largest bus company in America. Greyhound (and the Pennsylvania State Police) blamed the driver of a truck that was destroyed in this highway collision on Route 80, near Lewisburg and Williamsport, PA. We found witnesses nationwide who provided evidence that led to a jury verdict that was split into two amounts. $3.5 million (pain and suffering “compensatory” verdict) was intended to compensate our clients for their injuries and $2 million more (“punitive damages”) was awarded to punish Greyhound for its reckless conduct that led to this crash. With delay damages, Greyhound currently owes our clients over $6 million as a result of this jury verdict from a six week trial. Greyhound also paid settlements in excess of $11 million to our other clients that were hurt in this crash.

Clearfield County, Route 80, Northwest PA

Mediated settlement of $3.1 million for truck driver injured in a Clearfield County, PA crash caused by another negligent tractor trailer driver and company.

Our client was badly injured in one of the worst truck crashes (over 50 involved trucks) in Pennsylvania history. It happened in a blinding snowstorm on Route 80 in western PA and we found the trucker that caused it. We collected $3.1m from his employer, thanks to “The Recorded Statement” Jon Ostroff took from the at fault tractor trailer driver only days after the crash. The trucker’s employer could not overcome this damning statement and they paid our client $3.1 million dollars.

We proved he was “on the clock” and his negligence was his employer’s legal responsibility. We collected $3.7 million dollars from the truck driver’s employer for our young client.
