Lavent Law, P.A. is accepting claims from airlines and airline leasing companies that have placed orders for the Boeing 737 MAX.
737 MAX planes were grounded worldwide following the tragic Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashes, which resulted in the deaths of 346 people. Both crashes were caused by the faulty anti-stall system called MCAS. There is evidence that Boeing knew about the problems prior to both crashes.
Over 5,000 orders for 737 MAX planes were placed by airlines all over the world. Airlines were enticed by Boeing’s claims that the 737 MAX would result in substantial fuel and maintenance savings, while having a longer range. The costs savings were projected to be in the millions of dollars per year per plane.
Instead of saving millions of dollars with the 737 MAX orders, airlines have incurred devastating financial losses due to the costs of storing grounded planes and lost revenue for both delivered planes and planes that were projected to be delivered. In addition, airlines have had to cancel and reroute countless flights due to the grounding of the 737 MAX planes.
Boeing has already been sued by an aircraft leasing company to cancel their 737 MAX order. That lawsuit also seeks a substantial amount of additional compensation for punitive damages.
Despite making statements to the media for months that the 737 MAX will be back in the air by the end of 2019, on December 16, 2019 Boeing announced that it will suspend production of the 737 MAX due to the uncertainty of when the FAA will certify the planes.
Lavent Law, P.A. will thoroughly analyze each client’s potential claim against Boeing for the 737 MAX issues and advise what the ideal claim for damages is. Unlike traditional law firms that handle commercial litigation claims, Lavent Law PA will take the case on a contingency fee basis. This means that there will be no upfront payments for legal services or monthly bills for hourly time spent on the case. Instead, the fee for legal services will be a percentage of the amount of money recovered from Boeing.
