Family Claims Pilots Ignored Weather Warnings and Were Flying Too Low

The husband and daughter of a woman who lost her life in a 2015 plane crash are seeking damages from the company that owned the airplane, claiming that the negligent actions of the company and two of its pilots caused the tragic accident. The family’s lawsuit alleges that the company failed to properly inspect and maintain the plane, according to Fox News. The complaint also accuses the pilots of ignoring warnings pertaining to ground weather conditions, flying at an unsafe low altitude and failing to utilize a more appropriate landing site.

The November 2015 crash occurred when the private plane flew into an apartment building during conditions of low visibility. Both of the pilots and all seven passengers suffered fatal injuries during the crash. Citing the various negligent actions that led to this accident, the woman’s surviving family members are now seeking a jury trial, along with unspecified damages that will be determined during the trial, the website reported.
