Another Robinson Helicopter Crash Demonstrates Why TKK Continues to Represent Victims of Robinson's Poor Design

 Posted on August 11, 2021 in Aviation Litigation

Chicago Robinson helicopter accident lawyerA recent Robinson Helicopter crash has left its pilot hospitalized. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating a helicopter crash that took place just after 6:30 a.m. on August 11, 2021 in Prospect Heights, Illinois. Unsurprisingly, the helicopter involved was an R44 manufactured by the Robinson Helicopter Company.

Thankfully, the pilot and sole occupant of this latest R44 crash survived the ordeal. Reports indicate that the pilot took off from Chicago Executive Airport around 6:39 a.m. and reported a mayday due to engine failure just one minute later.

The pilot told WGN News that the engine failed upon takeoff, and he implemented emergency procedures, which allowed him to do a running landing. The helicopter’s rotor hit a pole on the way down.

Tim Tomasik, Tomasik Kotin Kasserman co-founder and partner, is currently representing other victims of Robinson Helicopter crashes. One case involves a crash that took place on October 23, 2019. This crash involved a Robinson R44 helicopter that had departed from the North Las Vegas Airport. In total, almost 600 people have been killed in crashes of Robinson helicopters since 1982.

Mr. Tomasik is proud to provide legal representation for the surviving spouse of the passenger who was killed in the Las Vegas helicopter crash. Tomasik Kotin Kasserman is committed helping victims pursue justice for injuries caused by the Robinson Helicopter Company.
