Fight To Get The Compensation You Need To Recover From A Maritime Or Aviation Work Injury
The injury or death of a loved one in a plane or helicopter accident is incredibly tragic, especially when it is during a ferry ride to the oil rig the victim worked on. Uncertainty regarding the rights of the injured person and their family during this time is common and understandable. When you are fighting with the victim’s employer for compensation, things become even more confusing.
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.
We Know How To Hold Them Accountable
When an employee suffers an injury or death as a result of the employers’ actions, the employer will go through great lengths to avoid liability for the cost of their damages. We are not afraid of big companies or their attorneys, and we have a long track record of fighting them for our clients’ fair compensation.
These accidents may be the result of:
- Mechanical failure
- Design flaw
- Maintenance failure
- Pilot error
- Manufacturing defect
- Violation of regulation
- Air traffic controller error
The team at St. Martin & Bourque will sift through the complicated facts relating to aviation incidents and discern the most critical cause or causes and, doing so, can help you hold the right defendants responsible for you or your family member’s injury or death.
From our Gulf Coast office, we have been handling claims arising from helicopter crashes, private aviation accidents, air ambulance crashes and commercial airline disasters for more than 20 years. These cases are complex and require an experienced legal team, which you will undoubtedly find at St. Martin & Bourque.
We have experience in understanding the complex facts that give rise to aviation accidents and also have navigated through the equally complex legal landscape surrounding aviation claims. Charles Bourque completed helicopter flight training at Fort Rucker, Alabama in the United States Army. After completing flight school, Chuck began serving as a commissioned officer and helicopter pilot in the Louisiana Army National Guard. This gives our firm unique insight into digging into the facts of an aviation accident and a strong ability to represent clients in these cases.
