Dan O’Brien, Esquire was recently quoted in a Syracuse, New York online newspaper with regard to the fatal Megabus accident that occurred in Syracuse on September 11, 2010. *Source: The Post Standard
Dan represented one of the catastrophically injured victims on the double decker bus traveling from Philadelphia to Toronto. The bus crash killed 4 people and injured 20 people, including 9 who were seriously injured.
Dan O’Brien was asked about his client, who was one of the 9 seriously injured victims, and he stated, "[m]y client was hurt about as bad as someone could get hurt without being killed." Because the settlement amount was confidential, Dan could only say that the amount was “very substantial.” Dan went on to say that his client suffered fractures “all over her body, literally from head to toe," and also suffered substantial scarring and needed multiple skin grafts.
Dan’s client has moved to Australia to be with her family after her case settled. Before the crash, Dan’s client worked as a computer programmer, but due to the brain injury sustained in the bus accident, she was no longer and will never be able to do that type of demanding work again. Dan further stated that the bus accident "was a life-altering event."
The driver of the bus took a wrong turn and used his personal GPS to try to get back on track. Despite multiple road signs indicating a low bridge clearance, the bus crashed into the bridge. The top level of the bus was literally taken off. The bus driver was distracted and did not see the signs prior to the crash. Dan's client was sitting in the upper level of the bus.
