Dr. Phil -- Free and Clear in Bus Crash Lawsuit

5/15/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Phil McGraw is finally done with the bus accident lawsuit that made headlines a few years back -- and get this ... the whole thing didn't cost him a cent.

A bus carrying 19 people crashed on the way to a taping of "Dr. Phil" back in 2007 -- and five of the women on board banded together to sue him and the bus company for negligence.

Earlier this week, the five women settled their lawsuit. According to a source close to the settlements, only the woman who was most seriously injured came away with a nice-sized settlement. 

We're told Dr. Phil's production company, which was named in the suit, didn't shell out a dime -- it all came from the insurance company for the bus company.

Dr. Phil has always said that you have to take responsibility for your life, when you get to be an adult, no matter what happen to you as a child. You do something wrong, then you are responsible to fix it, or you will never be a mature adult. It is easy to pick out the ones on this board that have not reached that level yet.
