Mother Files Lawsuit Against Boeing in Tragic Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 Crash

Crash Eerily Similar To Lion Air Tragedy Involving Same Boeing Max Aircraft


Ribbeck Law Chartered, which represents the majority of families of the victims of the deadly Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashes, and Global Aviation Law Group, has filed additional lawsuits against Boeing for an Egyptian family in U.S. federal court in Chicago.

Ribbeck Law Chartered has filed 44 cases against the Boeing Company in Federal Court in Chicago for the recent Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft crashes. Manuel von Ribbeck of Ribbeck Law Chartered stated,

“Today, we have filed an additional case for a passenger from Egypt who died in the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash.” “Our clients are seeking more than one billion US dollars for their damages.” “Ribbeck Law Chartered and Global Aviation Law Group represent 67 families of both crashes.”

This latest lawsuit filed by a mother who lost her son in the tragic Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, is yet another, in a growing number of lawsuits being filed against Boeing, the manufacturer of the 737 Max 8 aircrafts. In total there were six victims from Egypt, all of whom worked for the country’s Foreign Ministry.

“When I wished my son a safe trip, I had no idea it was going to be the last time I ever saw or spoke to him,” remarked the mother. “I am beyond devastated having lost my son in this air tragedy.” “In the months that followed, discovering Boeing knew about a potential flaw in their software, but still decided to leave this plane in service is shameful.” The still grieving mother continues, “It appears to me that Boeing put corporate profits ahead of the lives of its passengers.” “With this latest news about the airplanes and how they are still grounded almost after a year of the first crash means something very serious is wrong.” Dr. Mohamed, the passenger’s brother stated, “After my brother was killed in the crash, we felt an unbearable loss in our family.” “I felt I had lost all things in life, I had lost my life, lost our hopes, lost our dreams, he was the leader of our family.”

Furthermore, data from satellites shows the final track of Ethiopia Airlines Flight ET302 is nearly identical to that of the Lion Air flight that crashed on October 29, 2018. It has been documented that jack screws, which are used to manipulate the control surfaces on the horizontal stabilizer that pitch the nose up and down, have been found at both crash sites. Investigators noted both jack screws were set to send both ill-fated aircrafts into a dive.

“After the Lion Air 737 Max 8 catastrophe, Boeing issued a series of recovery steps pilots needed to take in order to prevent a similar tragedy, however, these directives which were grossly inadequate and did not prevent this second tragedy from occurring,” states Monica Kelly of Ribbeck Law Chartered. “Crash investigators believe the Ethiopian Airlines ‘crew followed all of the procedures’ and made repeated attempts to stabilize the aircraft and regain control of the jet from the same automated anti-stall system MCAS that had been implicated in the Lion Air crash.” Monica Kelly goes on to say, “This is truly a case of corporate greed, whereby Boeing pushed ahead with flights with no concern for their passengers.” Ms. Kelly concludes, “These cases are set to be heard again in court on September 17 for the Ethiopian Airlines case and October 17 for the Lion Air crash”
