On behalf of the families of 17 victims of the Lion Air crash in Indonesia, we filed a lawsuit against Boeing. You can read about it on our firm website or watch the Q13 coverage. As I said to Q13, these families are heartbroken. They need vigorous representation.
In short, our lawsuit alleges two main points. One, Boeing equipment failed. Two, Boeing neglected to properly inform and train pilots about a new, automated system installed on the plane. Pilots were not even aware of the existence of the new system.
Pilots are fired up. Captain Chesley Sullenberger, the airline pilot who was played by Tom Hanks in the movie “Sully,” said to the LA Times, “Pilots are not being told or taught everything they need to know about their airplanes.”
