 Boeing: Families of 737MAX victims will be compensated for $1445,000


Overseas Radio and Boeing Co. announced on September 24 that it would allocate funds from a $50 million financial aid fund announced in July to compensate 346 victims of the previous 737 MAX crash, and their families would receive $145,500 (about 130,000 RMB).

Boeing executives announced the news on 23, Reuters reported. It is learnt that the fund will immediately begin to accept compensation claims from the families of the victims, who do not have to give up their litigation rights.

Dennis Muilenburg, Boeings chief executive, said in a statement that the company continued to extend its deepest sympathy to the families and relatives of the victims of the two crashes. The establishment of the fund is an important step in our efforts to help affected families. Mullenberg said so.

At present, at least 12 law firms representing the families of the Ethiopian air crash victims have filed nearly 100 lawsuits against Boeing. About 60 families of victims have yet to file a lawsuit, but plaintiff lawyers say they expect more lawsuits in the future. A law firm disclosed that its clients sought more than $1 billion in compensation, but most lawsuits did not make specific claims.
