Alaska Airlines Sued for Emotional Distress by Boeing 737 Max 9 Passengers

On January 5, 2024, a Boeing 737 Max 9 plane’s door plug collapsed after the plane departed from the Portland International Airport. Citing emotional distress and physical injuries, seven passengers on this flight are now suing Alaska Airlines, Boeing, and the door plug manufacturer for their negligence. This is one of the many personal injury lawsuits involving airplane injuries that have been filed in recent months.

Cuong Tran, a passenger on the flight, was sitting directly behind the door plug. When the incident occurred, Tran’s shoes and socks were allegedly torn from his feet and his legs were pulled through the opening of the plane. Fortunately, Tran had been wearing his seatbelt, preventing him from being sucked out of the plane.

The Law Offices of John J. Perlstein send their condolences to the passengers and their loved ones impacted by the recent surge of aviation accidents and are here to support any California victims in filing claims.
