Over 100 passengers who were on board LOT Polish Airlines Flight 016 when it was forced to make an emergency gear up landing (Belly Landing) following the failed deployment of the landing gear continue to pursue their claim in the Courts of Chicago and shortly, New York. The group is seeking answers to what caused their traumatic experience as well as damages for their losses resulting from the events on 1 November 2011.

 

The Boeing 767 aircraft with registration SP-LPC left Newark, New Jersey airport in the US and was travelling to Warsaw Chopin airport in Poland when it suffered multiple failures of its landing systems. The first failure was identified as a leak in hydraulic fluid which prevented the primary landing gear from deploying. The flight crew then attempted to lower the landing gear via the 767’s back-up systems which also failed. The State Commission onAircraft Accidents Investigation (SCAAI) in Poland produced a preliminary report which suggested a popped circuit breaker may have contributed to the failure of the emergency landing gear systems however there was no warning signal to alert the crew of this issue nor was it covered in the emergency checklist manual.

Many passengers on board the aircraft have suffered and continue to suffer psychological issues following the incident and some may never fly again. A number of passengers continue to receive treatment for depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which negatively impacts all aspects of their lives.

Stewarts Law of London, England, the Wisner Law Firm, of Chicago, Illinois, USA, and Budzowska Fiutowski Partners of Warsaw, Poland filed a lawsuit in Chicago, US on 6 November 2012 against the manufacturer of the aircraft, Boeing and the maintenance provider, Mach II based in New Jersey. The group is also filing an action in the Courts of New York against Mach II.

With the second anniversary of the accident approaching on 1 November this year, time is running out for any passengers who were on board Lot Flight 016 to join the group as the limitation period is 2 years for bringing a claim. The international attorney group urge anyone on board the aircraft on the day of the incident who may be interested in joining the action to contact them as soon as possible, in order to protect their rights to bring a claim. If a claim is not made before the 2 year anniversary it will be time-barred.
