Emergency medical helicopters can be lifesavers when someone is severely injured and needs to be transported faster than conventional ground alternatives can manage.
Aviation Accidents: Rare but Complex and Costly
Unfortunately, as with any form of transportation, there are attendant risks. And as we saw in St. Louis’ recent medical helicopter crash, sometimes those risks can be deadly. Aviation accidents can be extremely complicated, with a number of potential causes including mechanical errors, pilot error, defective equipment or design, repair problems, lack of maintenance and more.
Whether pilot or passenger, if you or a family member has been in an aviation accident, finding the right attorney to handle an aviation claim is key, and not many attorneys have the breadth of experience and the expertise you need to win. Read on to find out what to look for.
