If you or a family member was injured in a helicopter tour anywhere in the country, contact Danko Meredith Trial Lawyers to talk with a helicopter crash attorney. The consultation is free. Our national trial attorneys have years of experience handling aviation accident claims.
Helicopter tour crashes are not uncommon. Frequently, the operator’s insurance carrier pays the operator for a new helicopter and, within a few of weeks of the crash, the tour company re0pens its door. The tour company advertises to arriving tourists that it is a “safe” operation, despite its history of disaster, and it’s back to business as usual.
Price competition in the helicopter tour industry leads to cost-cutting. Competition for glowing Yelp reviews leads to risk-taking. Common causes of tour helicopter accidents include:
Many tour operators use shell corporations to make their assets difficult to reach. Then, after a crash, they will contact families and make low-ball offers of settlement. A lawyer who knows the industry can help you fight for fair compensation.
