Boeing sued by Asiana Airlines passengers for San Francisco crash
Passengers in the Asiana Airlines flight that crashed last summer filed a personal injury lawsuit against aircraft manufacturer Boeing on Saturday, January 18 in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois. Plaintiffs are claiming that equipment on the plane, which was supposed to warn pilots if they were at a low airspeed, was either malfunctioning or not properly placed, leading to the crash.
According to the lawsuit, the crash lead the plaintiffs to have “sustained injuries, including but not limited to, bodily injury and resulting pain and suffering, disability, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, medical treatment, loss of income, and medical expenses.” Attorneys for the plaintiffs filed a petition asking Boeing to release evidence to the plaintiffs.
The Boeing 777 aircraft that was operated by Asiana crashed on the runway at the San Francisco International Airport in San Francisco, California, killing three people and injuring 180 others.
