Seven-Figure Recovery for Air Evac Helicopter Rescue Team Nurse After a Fatal Crash

In 2009, a 38 year-old mother of two and Registered Nurse who worked as a member of an Air Evac helicopter rescue team based out of Rushville, Indiana was killed as a result of a helicopter crash while returning to base from a charity function. In route, the helicopter operated by the Air Evac team suffered a catastrophic failure of the main rotor blade, which came apart mid-air.

Tabor Law Firm worked with an out-of-state law firm specializing in helicopter crashes to represent the children that were tragically left behind after their mother was killed. Tabor Law Firm brought a wrongful death suit against the manufacturer of the helicopter. A National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigation, as well as investigations by expert air crash investigators hired by Tabor Law Firm revealed the helicopter's rotor blade fractured due to defects created during the manufacturing process. The Tabor team successfully negotiated a seven-figure settlement that would pay for the funeral, burial, and estate administration expenses, as well as protect the future and provide for her two young children.
