Legal disputes are ongoing to determine what damages Boeing might owe families of crash victims. Two Boeing 737 MAX planes crashed months apart, killing nearly 350 people. Attorneys for families of the crash victims say they should be compensated for the suffering and terror relatives may have experienced in the minutes before the plane crashed. Boeing's lawyers said in the filing that under Illinois law, damages can only be paid for crash victims "conscious pain and suffering" if there is verifiable evidence that suffering occurred. But in the case of the Ethiopian Airlines crash, a medical expert cited by Boeing said the crash took place at a speed faster than the human brain can process pain.
