Jason Webster, principal attorney of The Webster Law Firm, recently filed a lawsuit
in the District Court of Hidalgo County, Texas, 93rd Judicial District
(Case No. C-2917-16-B) on behalf of the relatives of three men who died
in a plane crash due to the aircraft’s engine and/or its component
parts being allegedly defective and unreasonably dangerous.
According to court documents, on July 9, 2015, after leaving the McAllen,
Texas, airport, the aircraft piloted by Abraham Garcia and co-piloted
by Luis Rogelio Puente Villela crashed in Matamoros, Mexico. The third
occupant was Aureliano Barajas. Upon impact with the ground, it burst
into flames, killing all three occupants. Court documents further state
that the plane which caused the deaths of the three men was manufactured
by Cessna (defendant) and had a Lycoming (defendant) engine. Furthermore,
McCreery Aviation Co., Inc. (defendant) is a Lycoming-authorized service
center that allegedly performed maintenance on the aircraft that is the
subject of the lawsuit.
According to court documents, Cessna was required to establish and maintain
a quality control system to ensure that each component of the plane supplied
by an outside vendor or contractor was in a condition for safe operation.
Court documents further state that the aforesaid airplane and/or its related
component parts used therein were then in a defective condition, unreasonably
dangerous when put to their reasonably anticipated uses, and the airplane
was used in a manner reasonably anticipated by this defendant and others.
According to court documents, the defendants allegedly had actual subjective
awareness of the unreasonably dangerous risk of injury and death posed
by its activities, but nevertheless proceeded with conscious indifference
to the rights, safety and welfare of Abraham Garcia, Luis Rogelio Puente
Villela, Aureliano Barajas, Plaintiffs, and others. Court documents further
state that the defendants’ alleged gross negligence was a proximate
cause of the plaintiffs’ injuries and damages.
