Case Study: Helicopter Crash

Shine Lawyers aviation law department has assisted one of its clients in resolving part of the legal action surrounding a helicopter crash that occurred during a scenic flight over Western Australia’s Kimberley Region in 2007.

The crash caused significant spinal injuries to our client, a 28 year old Melbourne-based engineer.

As a result of his injuries, our client required extensive medical care and was unable to return to work for several months. The permanent injuries he sustained have meant that he can no longer return to full-time work within his role.

Shine Lawyers began representing the client in 2008 and commenced a claim against the charter flight company on his behalf. Shine Lawyers aviation law department worked to achieve a sound result for their client, enabling him to rebuild and move forward with his life.
