Following a helicopter accident, it is critical that you obtain competent, helicopter accident representation. What tips should you consider when interviewing attorneys for helicopter accident representation? Well, when looking for helicopter accident representation you should always try to have an aviation attorney on your team. Usually, when you add an aviation attorney to your helicopter accident team, you are adding someone that is familiar with not only the intricacies of aerodynamics and the basics of piloting, you are also adding a key team member that is likely to contribute great insight to your case’s strengths and weaknesses.
One such contribution that an aviation attorney might be able to add to your helicopter accident representation team may be in a very practical sense. In that, an aviation attorney will likely have a better understanding of how to manage a forensic investigation of the accident site, which will allow your helicopter accident representation team to better assess potentially case-winning evidence. An aviation attorney will also likely be able to give clear guidance on how to work with inspectors from both the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board throughout the investigative process. Determinations from the NTSB regarding the cause of the accident can have a huge impact on your cause of action. Furthermore, an aviation attorney can help your helicopter accident representation team by contributing knowledge of the aviation industry and other information that might help determine what happened in the helicopter crash and why.
Unfortunately, helicopter accidents happen more often that fixed-wing, general aviation accidents. Nevertheless, due to the versatility of helicopter operations, potential plaintiffs in helicopter accident cases include flight nurses, emergency rescue personnel, sightseeing passengers, and chartered passengers, and a whole lot more.
