Major Airplane Crash Litigation
Our firm currently represents the family of Somalia Prime Minister Staff Member Abdishakur Mohamed Shahaad, a citizen of Somalia who was killed in the crash of Ethiopian Airlines flight 302. The wrongful death lawsuit accuses Boeing of failing to properly warn pilots, airlines and the public of the risk of malfunctioning AOA sensors and automated MCAS dives following the crash of Lion Air #610.
We also currently represent the family of Lion Air passenger Sudibyo Onggo Wardoyo, 40, of Jakarta, Indonesia, who was killed in the crash of Lion Air Flight 610 in 2018. The wrongful death lawsuit, which was filed against Boeing, alleges the plane manufacturer failed to provide adequate instructions to pilots on how to respond to and disengage the plane’s anti-stall system.
Our firm also currently represents 21 passengers in the crash of Aeromexico Flight #2431 in Durango, Mexico in 2018.
In addition, Corboy & Demetrio Co-founder Thomas Demetrio represented United Airline passenger Dr. David Dao, obtaining a confidential settlement in just 18 days after the incident. Tom’s news conference with the Dao family was broadcast and streamed live globally and was covered by every major news outlet, including CNN, MSNBC, FOX NEWS Channel, and the New York Times.
