Helicopters are highly complex machines requiring intricate design, construction, maintenance, and skills in operation. Because these machines require such precision in order to ensure safe manufacture and use, the smallest problem could lead to a disastrous helicopter crash. A tiny part malfunction or a momentary negligent act could result in serious injury or death. With so many possible contributing factors involved in a helicopter crash, it is often difficult to identify the true cause of the accident or who is ultimately responsible for it.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in performing a thorough helicopter accident investigation and pursuing full and fair compensation on behalf of the victims and their families.

In many cases, the injured service member or the surviving family members can file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit to hold the negligent party responsible for the fatal or injurious accident.
