When a helicopter crashes, it can be devastating for all on board. People are often killed or sustain severe injuries such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries, severe burns and crushed or lost limbs. If someone you love is seriously injured or killed in a helicopter accident, the personal injury attorneys at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith can assist you in finding out what happened and who is responsible for the accident.

Determining Liability

There are several factors that can cause a helicopter to crash. When negligence plays a role, the person or company at fault can and should be held accountable. Negligent parties can include the pilot, the owner of the aircraft, the company responsible for maintenance and repairs, and the manufacturing company that supplied the parts.

Helicopter accidents are often the result of:

  • Pilot error such as flying into harsh weather conditions
  • Poor maintenance of the aircraft
  • Inadequate repairs
  • Faulty equipment
  • Regulation violations
  • Communication failures

Recent Las Vegas Helicopter Crashes

Helicopter AccidentsFour passengers and the pilot were killed in a Las Vegas helicopter crash on Dec. 7, 2011. The helicopter, operated by Sundance Helicopters, was taking the passengers on a luxury tour that was scheduled to fly over downtown Las Vegas, the Las Vegas strip and the Hoover Dam.

The helicopter, reportedly, crashed into the River Mountains surrounding Lake Mead at about 5 p.m. The cause of the accident is not known and the identities of the deceased have not been released.

Helicopter Accident Lawsuits
