If you have suffered a loss due to an aviation accident, it’s certain that you will need an attorney. The plaintiff in an aviation accident can take a variety of forms.

Aviation law, particularly where an accident or crash is involved, is very complex. In addition to state laws, aviation law can involve federal and even international laws. You will need an attorney that is experienced and knowledgeable in dealing with such complex matters.
Airplane crashes are rare, but when they do occur, the results are disastrous. And helicopter accidents are much more common than airplane crashes.

Here are some testimonials from satisfied clients we have represented in the past.
Helicopters are used very frequently in today’s world for transportation by average citizens, whereas in the past they were used primarily for military personnel and special operations. Helicopters are now commonly used for corporate transportation, sightseeing, and other recreational activities.
However, what most people do not realize is that helicopters are one of the most dangerous forms of transport, and crash up to 90 times more frequently than airplanes. A helicopter crash will commonly result in serious injury or death. Helicopter crashes are more frequent than plane crashes for many reasons, partially because they tend to fly lower to the ground than airplanes, and they also involve more complicated mechanics than airplanes.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), statistics have shown that out of about 1,700 helicopter crashes, 57% resulted in death. Some of the more common causes of helicopter crashes are:
- Defective machinery
- Improper maintenance of the helicopter
- Engine failure while in flight
- Pilot error or pilot negligence
- Weather problems or problems with the terrain
- Defects in the design of the helicopter
- Inadequate visual outlook
