Pilot in fatal helicopter crash had history of suspensions

Losing a loved one unexpectedly in an accident can be absolutely devastating. In the aftermath of these tragic losses, family members often want to know if there is anything that could have been done to prevent a fatal accident. If instances of negligence or reckless behavior are identified as factors in these accidents, it is possible for family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the appropriate party. It is true that no lawsuit or amount of money will be able to replace a loved one; however, holding the responsible party accountable for their actions can help family members get a sense of justice.

Jackknifed truck causes serious pileup in New York

Truck drivers and trucking companies have an increased responsibility to operate and maintain their vehicles properly. In the event of an accident, these enormous trucks can do serious damage to other motorists. Because of this, there are state and federal regulations with which commercial drivers must comply. Those who do not take this responsibility seriously can end up causing extensive damage in a truck accident.
