A massive lawsuit was filed on behalf of 282 victims of the Astroworld Festival tragedy by Texas trial attorney Thomas J Henry, who is nationally known and recognized for his record-breaking verdicts and settlements.
The lawsuit seeks up to $2 billion damages from a list of defendants, including Travis Scott, NRG Stadium, Aubrey Drake Graham, Live Nation and Apple Music.
“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,” said Thomas J. Henry. “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.”

More than 120 people who were also in attendance of the event reached out as well to Henry’s law firm seeking representation for their injuries and damages and he vows to continue offering case consultations to anyone injured or looking for justice from the events that took place.
