Chicago Helicopter Crash Lawyers
As a vertical take off and landing (VTOL) vehicle, a helicopter faces special challenges. Many fly at low altitudes, where collisions with trees, towers, tall buildings and power lines are a risk. Flying in heavy air traffic near major airports contributes to the risk of a helicopter crash. Emergency medical service (EMS) helicopters face additional dangers of landing at off-airport sites and in bad weather conditions.
