Boeing and FAA sued by family of Ethiopia crash victim

The commercial airline industry has (for the most part) been able to maintain a very strong safety record thanks to stringent policies and regulations aimed and ensuring that all commercial airliners are fit to fly. Knowing of the this dedication to safety, travelers from Manhattan and from the rest of the U.S. are willing to place trust in the aircraft manufacturers by frequently traveling on their planes. Yet along with addressing safety concerns, aircraft companies are also focused on turning a profit by providing airlines with more planes. If (in the rush to sell aircraft) a manufacturer bypasses safety procedures, they open themselves up to liability claims

That is exactly what Boeing is facing in the wake of a deadly crash involving one of its aircraft in Ethiopia. One family in particular has filed a lawsuit on behalf of their daughter, a Massachusetts resident who had been working in Africa when she was killed in the crash. The Ethiopia crash marks the second incident involving one of Boeing's newest commercial airliners. In its lawsuit, the family states that the aircraft was rushed to the market despite apparent flaws in its operation. The Federal Aviation Administration is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit, as the woman's family claims that there were not enough technical workers available to perform safety checks on this model of aircraft. 

When products are presented for public use, a failure to ensure that those products are safe might certainly be viewed as a violation of the public's trust. Those believed to be guilty of such offenses should be held accountable. Any affected person wanting to do sure may first want to secure the services of an experienced attorney.
