Helicopter Accident Lawsuits Lawyer
Helicopters are used in many industries, from firefighting and medical transportation to tourism and media usage. In the U.S., we operate more helicopters than any other country in the world, with an estimated half of all helicopters in existence located here. This also means we have our share of helicopter accidents, resulting in injuries and fatalities. When these accidents are caused by a preventable problem, the victims and their families have a right to pursue a helicopter accident lawsuit.
All aviation accident lawsuits are difficult and require extensive research and expertise. Helicopter injury accidents that result in pursuing a lawsuit for compensation can be extremely complex. There are many different factors that must be investigated to find and prove the cause of an accident. Some of the factors that can be involved include:
- Mechanical/design defects
- Improper maintenance
- Pilot error
- Weather patterns
- Air traffic control errors
- Malfunction of instruments, engine, rotor or other components
All these must be investigated, along with information from witnesses and the crash site to determine the exact cause or causes of a helicopter crash.
Compensation for Victims of Helicopter Crashes
While aviation lawsuits like helicopter injury accident cases are complex, with due diligence by an aviation legal team, victims of these crashes can receive compensation for their losses. The first step is determining the cause and proving that the crash could have been prevented. Product liability by the manufacturer, poor maintenance by the owner, pilot mistakes and other factors can be proven. The evidence can lead to verdicts in favor of sizable compensation for the victims of helicopter injury or fatality accidents.
