About the Boeing Plane Incidents
Two brand new Boeing 737 Max 8 planes crashed in flight within months of each other, in total killing nearly 300 people. After the Indonesian Lion Air crash, Boeing tried to address the issue internally and ultimately failed to acknowledge any issue to the public—endangering all who continued to fly on this faulty aircraft. However, investigations have since determined that the crashes were most likely caused by defective software and sensors.
Software Issues and Training Problems
The Boeing plane issues were ultimately caused by an automated system design flaw, which was originally created to avoid stalling in aircraft under certain conditions. However, most pilots state they were unaware of the new software, which means they would be unable to identify the problem mid-flight in an emergency. Rosemount Aerospace Inc. was responsible for developing these flight control systems, known as the MCAS, Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System.
Additionally, some research suggests that Boeing had the ability to install warning lights associated with the software, but stipulated additional costs for this feature; . This additional feature could have enabled pilots to identify the issue.. Their attempt to profit from safety features that should have been included standard is just one example of Boeing’s decision to prioritize profit over safety.

Know Your Legal Rights
Boeing having knowledge of the potential faulty software and sensors following the Indonesian Lions Air crash chose to keep the issue quiet in an effort to keep 737 Max 8 aircrafts in the air, thus maintaining their profits However, their decision to keep their planes airborne ultimately cost nearly 300 people their lives.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has a new “oversight strategy,” which leaves many of the aviation companies, including Boeing, to police their own safety features. In other words, companies like Boeing are responsible for their own safety checks and design decisions, which is one of the many reasons this faulty software program was able to make It through inspection.
Although the company has expressed sympathies and condolences for the crash, hundreds of families are left mourning the loss of:
- Their parents

Recovering from the sudden loss of a loved one is never easy, especially if that loss is preventable or was caused by negligence. While victims of these 737 Max 8 crashes were from all over the globe, Boeing is an American company.
These lawsuits should be heard in the United States. If cases are outside of the U.S., the families of the deceased are less likely to receive fair compensation, and Boeing knows that. Boeing employees have also been pressuring victim’s families into signing a release form, which gives small amount of compensation, and relinquishing their rights to sue Boeing.
