About Southwest 1380 Engine Failure

Kreindler successfully represented multiple injured passengers and the family of the sole passenger who was killed during the flight of a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 as a result of the mid-air fracture of a cabin window and the subsequent rapid depressurization of the aircraft. Critical to Kreindler’s success in resolving the case against the airline was the firm’s use of multiple focus groups to gain insight into how a jury would view the facts of the case. 

Preliminary Investigation has revealed that the airplane’s left engine suffered a turbofan blade failure that severely damaged the engine and the leading edge of the wing, then penetrated the fuselage, including a cabin window.
