Maximize Compensation After A Helicopter Crash Injures Or Kills
If you have suffered serious injuries or your family member has died in a helicopter crash, turn to a trusted name in aviation accident advocacy. Contact Angelley PC to learn how I, attorney William Angelley, can make a difference for you. I represent helicopter accident victims across the country.
Many helicopter crash cases fall into three broad categories:
- Sightseeing expeditions and tours, common around mountainous scenery
- Medical transport flights taking people in critical condition to hospitals
- Offshore helicopter crashes
Military helicopter crash cases bring their own challenges. Each of these case types has a unique set of issues. I have been interviewed on many major news networks because of my noteworthy combination of experience, knowledge and accomplishments in helicopter crash litigation.
How I Stand Out As A Helicopter Accident Attorney
Achieving the best result in a helicopter crash case requires a helicopter crash attorney with actual hands-on experience flying and maintaining helicopters. I have that experience, as I served as a Navy helicopter pilot and was also a maintenance officer for my Navy at-sea detachment. Since becoming a trial lawyer, I have accumulated a strong track record by successfully advocating for survivors in helicopter crash cases around the country.
As the lead attorney at Angelley PC, I have the experience and level of knowledge that injured people and grieving family members look for after suffering injuries and losses caused by helicopter accidents. Allow me to share with you how I can help you.
For Those Interested In Helicopter Mechanics
In an airplane, the only moving part, so to speak, is the engine. Pretty much everything else, other than the landing gear when needed, is fixed. In a helicopter, if the part is attached to the helicopter, chances are it’s moving, and moving at a high rate of speed.
In a single-engine helicopter, the engine typically turns a shaft that goes into a large transmission box. That transmission will then turn two other shafts that run about 90 degrees from one another. One goes up and turns the main rotor blades and the other goes back into another gearbox that redirects the motion about 90 degrees again to turn the tail rotor blades.
The movement of the main rotor blades is sort of similar to the movement of a carnival carousel. All the blades can be moved up or down at once, and simultaneously, each individual blade can change its pitch separately from the others. This allows the helicopter to hover, fly forward, fly backward or fly sideways.
The mechanical operation of a helicopter is fascinating and mind-bogglingly complex. My success in helicopter crash cases has been enhanced by my understanding of the engineering, physics and mechanics of helicopter flight. Accident reconstruction often focuses on what went wrong before a crash – and who was responsible.
