Kreindler Files Lawsuit vs. Boeing on behalf of Ethiopian Crash Family

On behalf of the family of humanitarians Carlo Spini and his wife Gabriella Viciani of Sansepolcro, Italy, Kreindler & Kreindler LLP and co-counsel Power Rogers & Smith LLP of Chicago have filed a lawsuit against Boeing Company and Rosemount Aerospace. The lawsuit includes allegations not found in previously filed lawsuits - that Boeing failed to activate an important safety feature in the airplane and that Boeing failed to have its MCAS consider flight variables such as the airplane’s airspeed and altitude before triggering and pushing the airplane’s nose down toward the ground.

Kreindler Retained by Families of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302

On behalf of the families that Kreindler represents, and as leading aviation safety advocates, the firm will vigorously pursue legal claims against Boeing and others who are responsible for this tragic and preventable crash which took the lives of 157 people.

For the second time in less than five months, a brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed after reportedly encountering abnormalities with its airspeed shortly after takeoff. Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 scheduled from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Nairobi, Kenya crashed 6 minutes after takeoff, killing all 157 people on the aircraft.

The families of victims are urged not to accept any preliminary offer of compensation presented to them by Ethiopian Airlines, since families who accept the airline’s initial offer may very well be prohibited from filing any subsequent legal actions against it, and perhaps even Boeing.

Kreindler & Kreindler LLP offers to review correspondence and compensation offers from Ethiopian Airlines or their insurer to family members of crash victims at no charge and with no obligation. We will review the documents and correspondence and provide our legal advice to the family or their representative, free at no charge.

Lion Air Crash Initial Data Implicates Pitot-Static System
On October 29, 2018, Lion Air Flight 610 crashed 13 minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia into the Java Sea. 189 people were onboard the Indonesian airline's aircraft and all are presumed dead. The plane was a new Boeing 737 MAX 8, and was delivered to Lion Air less than 3 months prior to the crash. Pilots began experiencing trouble almost immediately after takeoff and early reports from Indonesian safety investigators indicate that each of the four previous flights of the crashed plane had problems with the airplane’s airspeed. This may implicate the pitot-static system. Errors in the pitot-static system can be extremely dangerous and can cause the pilot to receive unreliable altitude and airspeed information (among other information) and lead to disaster.
