ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 302
Boeing manufactured the 737 Max at a factory just outside of Seattle, Washington, where the offices of Krutch Lindell Bingham Jones have been located since 1957. Our firm specializes in aviation accident litigation and has successfully brought claims relating to fourteen different Boeing airliner crashes and hard landings, including the United Airlines Flight 553 crash in Chicago, Illinois, which was the first fatal Boeing 737 crash. We also represented the families of victims of SilkAir Flight 185, in which a Boeing 737 crashed into the Musi River in Indonesia, killing all aboard.
On March 10, 2019, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed shortly after takeoff near Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Preliminary reports show that the Boeing 737 Max likely crashed due to a poorly functioning Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (“MCAS”). Further investigation is needed before we definitively determine the cause of the crash; however, litigation against Boeing is inevitable.
