Travis Scott‘s Astroworld tragedy has left 9 people dead and hundreds more severely injured. Texas power attorney Thomas J. Henry is representing over 165 of the victims injured at the Nov. 5 concert hosted by the 30-year-old rapper at NRG Park in Houston, Texas and he told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that he expects settlements to reach “billions” of dollars! “The people I am representing are in age range from teenagers up to age 40,” Attorney Henry said. “They have injuries ranging from heart attacks, to heart issues, to brain injuries, to spinal injuries, to broken bones, broken legs, eye injuries, internal organ injuries, bruising and bleeding.”
In addition the “severe physical injuries” sustained by victims whose cases are being handled by the famed lawyers firm, which boasts over 200 lawyers, Henry said that there is “just a whole calamity emotional, injuries that were suffered” as well. “Those who were injured are still very traumatized because they had to step over dead bodies. 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.”
