Thomas J. Henry, an attorney hailing from Texas filed a lawsuit of $2 billion against Travis Scott, Drake, and the organizers on behalf of the 282 victims of the Astroworld festival tragedy.

The lawsuit is filed on behalf of the 282 victims, they all hired Attorney Henry to represent them.

There have been more than 300 people who were hospitalized and treated for their injuries incurred during the festival. 8 people were pronounced dead at the scene of the festival whereas 2 more people succumbed to death while being treated in different hospitals in the following week.

Attorney Thomas J. Henry stated “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. 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.”

Attorney Henry further claimed that his clients have sustained multiple injuries at the astroworld festival. The injuries range from brain injuries, broken bones, bleeding, and bruising to heart attacks. “Those who were injured are still very traumatized because they had to step over dead bodies,” he said. “They didn’t have a choice because there was nowhere to move. These people were trapped. The crushing effect was so heavy and so hard. They couldn’t breathe. They couldn’t get out.”

Another lawsuit of $750 million was filed by a Houston-based attorney Tony Buzbee against Travis Scott, Live Nation, and Drake. 125 attendees hired Attorney Buzbee to represent them.

“We filed suit today on behalf of 125 Astroworld concertgoers, including the family of Axel Acosta. Axel died at the concert. Many of the clients named in this lawsuit suffered broken bones, or twisted knees, or orthopedic injuries. Many have a psychological injury,” read a statement from Buzbee. “I expect we will file on behalf of another 100 individuals very soon. I have been in contact with defense counsel for many of the entities sued, to include Live Nation.”
