Asiana Airlines Inc. has settled 72 personal injury claims in lawsuits filed over a July 2013 crash landing at San Francisco International Airport. Reportedly, the company is continuing to negotiate with other passengers. The airline announced the settlement in a federal court filing in Oakland, Calif., without describing terms of the agreements. Three people died after an Asiana flight carrying 291 passengers struck a seawall as pilots attempted to land. The impact tore off part of the tail and sent the jet skidding down the runway before it came to rest and caught fire.
Asiana is not asking for caps on damages by claiming no negligence in the crash. While 255 passengers and crew members suffered either no injuries or minor ones, 49 suffered major injuries. It appears that was the finding by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The case is in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (Oakland).
