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.
