HOUSTON, TEXAS (November 9, 2021) – Powerhouse Texas attorney Thomas J. Henry is representing 68 victims in a lawsuit against Travis Scott, Aubrey Drake Graham, Live Nation, and NRG stadium with dozens more expected to follow suit as more victims forward to tell their stories and demands for justice.
With cases quickly mounting, Thomas J. Henry revealed that he sees potential damages for Astroworld injuries and deaths reaching billions of dollars.
“More and more injured victims are contacting my firm by the hour,” said Thomas J. Henry. “While we are all still working to understand the full scope of the Astroworld tragedy, I believe the damages suffered by its victims could total in the billions.”
At least eight people have died as a result of the terrible injuries they suffered at Astroworld. Another 23 people were hospitalized, 11 people suffered cardiac arrest, and 300 were treated on site.
