Understanding the Differences Between Helicopter and Airplane Accidents
From the trial lawyer's standpoint, there are many important differences between helicopter accidents and other aircraft crashes. For example, forensic investigation of a helicopter accident scene and the aircraft itself tends to produce a great deal of information regarding the causes of the accident - perhaps even more than in airplane crashes. The condition of the rotors alone can speak volumes about what happened and why.
Kreindler attorneys include licensed helicopter pilotswith accident investigation training and experience. We know what to look for in the investigation of helicopter accidents under many different circumstances:
- Emergency rescue
- Outsourced military operations handled by private contractors
- Transportation to and from offshore oil or gas platforms
- Firefighting operations
- Commuter traffic monitoring and reporting
- Sightseeing tours
- Chartered or corporate helicopter operations
