Helicopter Crash Survivor Awarded $4.5 Million
In 2003, A helicopter collision at the Torrance Municipal Airport took the lives of two men, and left one other, ex marine Gavin Heyworth, with severe, life altering injuries.  A federal judge concluded that the Federal Aviation Administration was at fault for the crash, finding the blame with the air traffic controllers.  Heyworth’s attorney, Jeff Wolf, of Heimanson & Wolf, helped his client to acquire a $4.5 million settlement at the hands of the guilty party, the FAA.
Aviation accidents, whether commercial planes, private jets, or helicopter crashes can have catastrophic results.  While smaller aviation accidents can lead to more minor injuries like fractures or broken bones, larger scale accidents can result in brain trauma, spine injuries, comas, and even death.
