Helicopter Crash Attorneys – New Jersey, New York
Around the world, passengers, crew members and persons on the ground are killed and seriously injured in helicopter crashes almost every day. In fact, helicopter flight has been referred to by many as the most dangerous form of flight and air travel. After careful and extensive investigation, it is oftentimes determined, that the fault in a helicopter accident may lie in the helicopter pilot, air ambulance crew or charter company. However, in other helicopter crashes, the crash or accident may have been caused by a poorly maintained helicopter, a defective helicopter or airplane design, or the fault may even lie in the use of a poorly rebuilt, defective, worn out or incorrect helicopter part. Helicopters are vastly complex aircraft, complicated by the fact that many component parts and systems are often manufactured by various companies and contractors other than the main manufacturer.
There are literally thousands of component parts and therefore potential causes for every helicopter or airplane accident or crash, involving helicopter engines, rotors, instruments, navigation systems, safety equipment, fire suppression systems, landing gear, fuel delivery systems, communication systems, etc. In order to prevail in any helicopter, airplane or any other general aviation crash or accident case, it must first determined who and what was at fault, and what, in whole or in part, caused the actual crash or accident. In order to accomplish this, aviation engineers, helicopter crash experts and accident investigators must be retained to study, investigate and review the facts of the case and interview witnesses to determine what or who caused the helicopter to crash. Aviation accidents involve many legal theories and potential remedies under products liability and negligence causes of actions.
Due to the severe nature of the injuries typically involved in helicopter accidents and crashes and the vast complexity of the product itself, it is often necessary to gather an experienced legal team of personal injury attorneys and engineering experts in order to accelerate and bring a client’s case to trial or settlement.
