Helicopter crashes are high profile accidents because of their devastating nature. Helicopters were not designed to crash. When they do, the occupants are usually killed or suffer catastrophic injuries, like paralysis and burn trauma. Medical bills will exceed tens of thousands of dollars, and may even rise into the millions.
It is important to get a helicopter crash lawyer involved immediately to ensure evidence is properly preserved and analyzed. Many witnesses and participants will need to be interviewed, and potentially testimony preserved.
