Are helicopters dangerous? Helicopters are very complex, and one defect can cause a severe and often deadly crash. Since helicopters are sophisticated machines, they also require the highest level of maintenance and piloting skills. Accidents happen when these skills are insufficient or compromised. Both people and property nearby, as well as passengers and crew, can be affected by a helicopter crash. The fact that helicopters are used in risky operations, such as search and rescue missions, fire-fighting, law enforcement, medical evacuation, in war zones, and sometimes in bad weather, increases their chances of being involved in fatal accidents.
When bringing a case involving a helicopter accident, our legal team works closely with helicopter crash experts, aviation and legal engineers, and accident investigators from all over the world to not only uncover what went wrong but to bring the strongest case against whoever is liable. We pursue any and all legal theories and remedies under product liability law, negligence law, and aviation law on behalf of our crash victims and their families, whether there has been a wrongful death or serious injury.
As an aviation law firm, we have handled numerous crash and accident cases, winning significant awards for clients at trial or during settlement negotiations. We are well-versed in the insurance issues surrounding helicopter crashes, which is an important consideration in cases where insurance coverage may be limited.
