Lawyer Tony Buzbee confirmed the filing on social media and also noted that he represents the family of Axel Acosta, the 21-year-old attendee who died:
“Many of the clients named in this lawsuit suffered broken bones, or twisted knees, or orthopedic injuries. Many have psychological injury. 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. Our team has toured the site and collected evidence. We have taken statements from more than fifty witnesses. We have collected hours of video tape from almost every angle. No amount of money will fix what occurred on the night of November 5. However, based on what I know now, to include what I learned during discussions with opposing counsel, it is my firm belief that every individual who attended that concert and who suffered injury will be fairly compensated. I intend to make sure of it.”
The lawsuit was filed just shortly after civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump and lawyer Alex Hilliard revealed that they will file lawsuits on behalf of 200 attendees, in addition to the 90 other lawsuits currently in the works.
