Serious Injury Lawyer – News Helicopter Accidents

Lawyers for News Media Workers Involved in Helicopter Accidents

Covering the news by helicopter has clear risks, but media companies and aircraft operators are obligated to protect both passengers and pilots by observing fundamental laws and taking all necessary safety measures.

If you suspect that negligence may have contributed to your recent news helicopter crash or aircraft accident, you need an experienced aviation attorney to pursue your claim. Our firm is a trusted legal resource in the Houston area, across Texas and the Gulf Coast, and throughout the world. We empathize with your pain or tragic loss, and will exercise diligence in evaluating your case against a helicopter operator, manufacturer, or another responsible party.

Finding and Exposing Negligence to Obtain Compensation for Injury Victims

As we do in other types of aviation accidents, our legal team will enlist expert resources as needed to fully investigate the crash that has altered your life. We know from experience with numerous offshore helicopter and fatal accident cases that liability may rest with or be shared among parties including:

  • An employer — such as a news service, photography or video company, or television or radio station
  • The helicopter operator or “air taxi” service involved in the accident
  • The manufacturer of the airframe, engines, or a defective part or system that malfunctioned in flight, at takeoff, or during an attempted landing
  • An aircraft maintenance provider negligent in repair or service of the aircraft

Experience that matters

Given the complexity of aviation incidents, it is critical that an attorney handling a fixed or rotary wing aircraft case possess the required experience needed to deliver the best possible results.  Prior to representing aviation disaster victims, Jeff Raizner gained valuable experience in the past representing a major aircraft manufacturer in litigation arising out of major airline disasters.  This background enables Raizner Slania to understand both the complex issues surrounding aircraft design, maintenance and operation, as well as insight into the tactics that aircraft manufacturers, operators, component part makers, and maintenance facilities will employ in defending aviation cases.

Our Diligence and Reputation as Versatile Trial Lawyers Will Benefit You

We have achieved many substantial trial verdicts and negotiated settlements to benefit the seriously injured and families tragically harmed by a wrongful death due to negligence. Our collaborative team of lawyers also has proven, in-depth knowledge of insurance law as it applies to aviation incidents.

Covering news, traffic, and weather by helicopter is a high-pressure occupation. You or your loved one may have fallen victim to maintenance shortcuts, lack of diligence in pilot training/hiring, poor decisions to fly into inclement weather, faulty airframe or component part design, or any of a vast range of other equipment problems and other factors.
