B&L MONITORING DEVELOPMENTS IN CRASH OF ASIANA FLIGHT 214
Aviation lawfirm Bohrer & Lukeman is monitoring the events surrounding the crash landing of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) this past Saturday, July 6th. The rear of the Boeing 777 appeared to strike the seawall just short of the runway as it was on final approach. Reports streaming in from eyewitnesses and initial accounts suggest that the aircraft’s speed and altitude were well below the minimum operational limits necessary to safely fly, control and land the aircraft.
Early reports suggest that the aircraft’s stick shaker was activated indicating a warning of the aircraft’s potential to stall.
Airplane crash lawyers Bohrer & Lukeman, which has previously successfully litigated against Asiana Airlines, is closely following the investigation of the National Transportation Safety Board as well as facts being reported by news media.

We will continue to post updates to this blog as more information becomes available.
