Plane Crash Victims’ Wives Open Wrongful Death Suits
In February, a Beech 1900 airplane crashed two miles outside of the Miami Executive Airport (also known as Tamiami Airport). The two crew members and two passengers did not survive the crash, and the questions that haunt this incident have led the victims’ families to seek justice with our firm.
The plane was owned by a security company based in Venezuela, and it was on a maintenance trip to Florida. It was scheduled to refuel in the Turks and Caicos before returning to South America, and before the trip, two men were offered seats to fly back with the crew. Minutes after takeoff, one of the plane’s engines failed, and the crew requested to turn around and make an emergency landing. For reasons unknown, the plane approached the landing strip too low, collided with a utility pole and crashed.
The two passengers, one a business owner and the other an aviation engineer, had come to South Florida from Venezuela to visit family and friends. They knew the plane owners and accepted their offer to fly them home. Now the widows of the two passengers are seeking compensation for their losses from the company that owns the plane.
