David Joya, Disabled Aeromexico Passenger, Sues for Broken Leg


A disabled Texas man is suing Aerovias de Mexico, a company that flies as Aeromexico, accusing its staff of breaking his leg.

Back in February, David Joya was flying from Leon, Mexico to Houston on Aerovias de Mexico, which was operating as Aeromexico.

Joya's itinerary required that he make a layover in Mexico City where he could catch a flight to the U.S.

According to local media the Ultimate Aldine, "Joya claimed an Aeromexico employee handled him 'aggressively' while transporting him from one aircraft to another, allegedly causing his leg to be broken."

He is suing Aeromexico for negligence and breach of contract, claiming the airline didn't provide the level of comfort and service he expected when booking his tickets. The amount he is requesting in damages remains undisclosed, but it will cover medical expenses and court fees.
