Pilot crash-lands helicopter in Los Angeles

The last thing you expect to see in the morning when you get up is a helicopter crash-landing in your back yard, That's happened in the past, though, and it may happen again. For the people in a Sherman Oaks neighborhood in Los Angeles, that unlikely incident happened

On July 21, a helicopter crash-landed on one of the area's streets without warning. The helicopter was carrying four people, all of whom were

According to the news reports from the scene, the helicopter made a hard landing on a small street in a local neighborhood. The rotor blades appeared bent, and the helicopter's water-landing pontoons had been released. It is not clear if the pilot had intended to land in the neighborhood or if he was attempting to land in water nearby.

The four people on board suffered non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to recover. While it's not known why the flight wasn't completed successfully, it is known that the pilot was flying while registered to National Helicopter Service. This is a company that provides helicopters for tours among other purposes.

If you take a helicopter tour, the likelihood of getting into a collision is slim. If you are injured as a result of the pilot's negligence or lack of training, you can pursue a claim. The company allowing him or her to fly may be responsible if it hired someone without the skills needed to complete a safe flight. An experienced California personal injury attorney can provide guidance.
