Lawsuit Filed Following Helicopter Crash

According to a recent report a lawsuit has been filed by the families of three men that died as a result of a helicopter crash in early 2007. The three men were sailors, and they were killed when the aircraft crashed off the San Diego coast in January 2007 during a training exercise.
There were four victims that were killed in the helicopter crash, and they were Lt. j.g. Laura J. Mankey of West Hills, Lt. Adam Dyer of Lafayette, Petty Officer 1st Class Cory Helman, of New Richmond, and Petty Officer 2nd Class Christopher Will of Warren.The aircraft had taken off from USS Bonhomme Richard.

The lawsuit has now been filed against seven defendant companies that were involved in the manufacturing and sale of the aircraft and its parts. The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, and claims that parts of the helicopter were defective, and this is what caused the aircraft to crash.

The manufacturer of the aircraft, Sikorsky Aircraft, has been named as a defendant in the lawsuit, along with a number of other companies that manufactured components for the aircraft.
