21 passengers in airplane accident at DIA file suit

A federal lawsuit was recently filed in U.S. District Court in Denver, Colorado by 21 passengers that were on a flight that crashed during takeoff at Denver International Airport.  The accident occurred in December 2008 when Continental Flight 1404 skidded off the runway.

The flight was carrying 110 passengers and 5 crew members.  No one was killed in the accident but several people were injured.  According to court documents, the 21 passengers involved in the lawsuit suffered “physical assault, acceleration and deceleration, rolling, pitching, yawing, bumps, lifting off, crashing down, impact with the aircraft and its interior” and emotional distress.

The passengers claim that air traffic controllers and the Federal Aviation Administration are to blame for the accident for understating wind speed and allowing the plane to take off in violation of FAA regulations.  The air traffic controllers are accused of not providing “key, available” information on winds to the flight’s pilot and other crew.
