Lafayette, Louisiana, Helicopter And Aviation Accident Lawyers
In Louisiana, people ride in helicopters around the gulf for pleasure or to reach an offshore worksite. While these aircraft are generally known for their safety, factors like poor helicopter design, defective parts, inclement weather, contact with flocks of birds, or pilot negligence can cause the aircraft to crash. These issues can all result in serious injury. If you were injured while working on or flying in a helicopter, you should discuss your case with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
At Tauzin & Lorio, Attorneys at Law, we have more than 20 years of experience in personal injury law. Our attorneys will listen to your testimony about the accident. Gathering medical reports and interviewing witnesses is an important step to discover the cause of your injuries, whether they result from defective equipment or operator error. Once we know why and how the accident occurred, we will begin filing a lawsuit against the negligent party.
Pilot Negligence Threatens Passenger Safety
Many helicopter accidents are the result of pilot negligence. However, pilot negligence is not the only cause of these types of accidents. At our firm, we have successfully represented victims of helicopter accidents caused by:
- Flying in severe weather conditions
- Overloading the aircraft
- Unloading the helicopter incorrectly
- Failing to inflate the boon
- Missing the helipad landing
- Flying into stationary objects or flocks of birds
- Failing mechanical parts
The tragedy of a helicopter crash doesn’t end when the victim leaves the hospital. Catastrophic injuries like spinal cord injuries and brain damage have life-altering effects. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a helicopter accident, you need a lawyer who can effectively handle your case.
