Aviation Accidents

The injury or death of a loved one in a plane or helicopter accident is incredibly tragic. Uncertainty regarding the rights of the injured person and their family during this time is common and understandable. Aviation accident victims and their families hire St. Martin & Bourque because of our many years of experience handling accidents involving helicopters transporting individuals offshore, along with our representation of individuals injured or killed in commercial and general aviation crashes.

These accidents may be the result of:

  • Mechanical failure

  • Pilot error
  • Manufacturing defect
  • Violation of regulation
  • Negligence
  • Air traffic controller error
