Attorney files $2 billion Astroworld Fest lawsuit

Nearly 300 victims named as Plaintiffs

Texas trial attorney Thomas J. Henry has filed a massive $2 billion lawsuit on behalf of victims of the Astroworld Festival tragedy that left 10 people dead and hundreds more injured.

The lawsuit seeks up to $2 billion damages from a long list of defendants, including Apple Music, Travis Scott, Drake, Live Nation, and NRG Stadium, and was filed on behalf of 282 victims who have hired Thomas J. Henry to represent them following the catastrophic event. Another 120 victims have contacted the firm seeking representation for their injuries and damages.

“The defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money off of this event, and they still chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put attendees at risk,” shares Henry, who is nationally recognized for his record-breaking verdicts and settlements. “My clients want to ensure the defendants are held responsible for their actions, and they want to send the message to all performers, event organizers, and promoters that what happened at Astroworld cannot happen again.”

Thomas J. Henry continues to offer immediate case consultations to injured Astroworld victims.

Multiple lawsuits were filed in days following the November 5th incident in Houston after panic erupted as the crowd of 50k stormed towards the stage, forcing emergency personnel to intervene multiple times. Scott stopped the show several requesting emergency assistance, but ultimately finished out his 75 minute set which included a surprise appearance by Drake. The lawsuits claim the rappers incited a frenzy which caused the tragedy.

Scott and Live Nation promised full refunds for attendees with Scott covering all funeral costs and mental assistance for those affected.

Houston police are investigating cases of drug injections that may have led to some of the deaths. Houston Police Chief Troy Finner says a security officer felt a prick in the neck before losing consciousness, but was revived after medical staff administered Narcan. They also noticed a needle size mark in his neck.
