Boeing is currently undergoing lawsuits by some 80+ passengers for the crash of the Asiana Flight 214 at the San Francisco Airport last July. The suit was filed with the Circuit Court of Cook County in Illinois, home of Boing headquarters.
According to the suit, Boing was aware of either improperly installed or defective equipment, which ended up leading to the crash. The pilots received inadequate warnings for low airspeed. Boeing "was aware that its low airspeed warning system was inadequate."
"As a result of the crash, each of the plaintiffs 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," the suit added.
AN attorney for Ribbeck Law Chartered, the firm filing the law suide, stated "We are asking for damages to be paid to the passengers and asking the court to hold Boeing partially liable."
The crash resulted in the death of 3 passengers, as well as the injury of another 180, totally over half of the planes occupants at that time.
