Oil rig operations in the Gulf of Mexico often make extensive use of helicopters. While this form of transportation is very quick and efficient, it is statistically more dangerous than other modes of transport. Compared with airplanes, helicopters are more likely to run on a single engine and are less able to glide to an appropriate landing spot, making catastrophic crashes more likely in the event of a loss of power.

At LaGarde Law Firm, our experience in handling personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits stemming from oil rig operations extends to helicopter crashes. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a helicopter crash, whether commercial or private, we can help.

A helicopter crash, particularly in a body of water, is a complex matter to investigate. Evidence is often very difficult to recover. You need an attorney experienced in dealing with accident investigators both from the government and from operators and manufacturers. Their interests will not always align with yours, and you need a fierce and committed advocate like LaGarde Law Firm on your side from the very beginning.

We understand that in addition to coping with injury or loss, the stress of a lawsuit is an unwelcome, if necessary, burden. That is why if you select LaGarde Law Firm to represent you, we will work to make sure you are informed every step of the way and are assured your case is in expert hands. You need compensation and justice for your injury, but just as important, you need an ally to lean on. That is what we offer at LaGarde Law Firm.
