Two-Man Emergency Helicopter Crew Dies in Crash

Posted By Personal Injury Lawyer || 4-Sep-2010

A pair of CareFlite crew members were killed in early July when their helicopter experienced mechanical problems and crashed near Dallas, TX, reports say.

The Bell helicopter apparently lost its rotor after taking off from Grand Prairie, TX after a ground crew performed maintenance on it, reports say. The crash, which occurred near U.S. Highway 67 and Wyatt Road in rural Ellis County, started a large grass fire.

The helicopter's rotor was found about 100 yards from the wreckage; the tail section of the aircraft was another 200 yards away. Reports say there were no mayday calls before the helicopter crashed.

Emergency services pulled the crew's bodies from the crash, transporting them to the Dallas County medical examiner's office. Their names were not released.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
