Greyhound Bus Lines is the largest intercity bus company in North America. Its drivers transport 18 million passengers over 5.4 billion miles per year.
Throughout its history, Greyhound has been involved in a number of fatal accidents, many of which resulted from untrained, inexperienced and fatigued bus drivers.
Our Undefeated Bus Accident Lawyers have recovered more in settlements and verdicts from Greyhound than any other law firm in the United States, including the largest verdicts and settlements in the company’s history.
Here are just a few of the more serious Greyhound crashes over the past decade:
- 2005: A Greyhound bus en route from Los Angeles to San Francisco crashed, killing two and injuring many other passengers. One of the deceased was a 23-year-old pregnant woman. Authorities cited driver fatigue, then later identified an epileptic seizure as the cause of the crash.
- 2013: our Bus Accident Lawyers recovered a $18.8 Million Verdict—the largest in Greyhound’s history—on behalf of two passengers who were injured when the bus rolled over while traveling on icy roads.
- 2014: During a trip from Cincinnati to Detroit, a driver fell asleep at the wheel of his Greyhound bus due to untreated obstructive sleep apnea, which led to a serious crash that injured five. A month before the crash, the U.S. Department of Transportation had recommended the driver be tested for sleep apnea, but Greyhound neglected to do so. Greyhound tried to avoid responsibility by claiming the driver had lost consciousness by choking on his coffee.
Our Bus Accident Lawyers recovered the largest published settlement in Greyhound’s history after proving that the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel
- 2013: A Greyhound bus crashed into a semitrailer when the driver fell asleep. One woman was killed, and dozens others were injured. An Ohio man who was a passenger in the bus would end up losing a leg, and had to endure 30 different surgeries to treat his wounds from the accident. In 2016 a jury found Greyhound at fault, and awarded the victim $23 million in compensatory damages along with $4 million in punitive damages
- 2015: A Texas woman died near Arlington when the SUV she was traveling in was disabled, and then struck by a Greyhound bus as police were trying to move it. Our Bus Accident Lawyers represented several of the injured bus passengers, resulting in a significant (and confidential) settlement.
- 2016: In San Jose, California, a Greyhound bus ran into a safety barrier, killing two passengers and injuring 18. The driver admitted to fatigue, and passengers reported seeing him dozing off moments before the bus drifted into the wrong lane.
- 2017: a young girl was killed and at least 12 passengers were seriously injured when a Greyhound bus swerved off the highway in Utah while traveling from Denver to Las Vegas.
- 2018: a Greyhound bus and 18-wheeler collided in New Mexico, killing 8 people and seriously injuring at least 9 passengers.
