Specialist aviation lawyers acting for injured victims and families who lost loved ones in the Clutha helicopter tragedy in Glasgow in November have welcomed Bond Aviation Group’s admission of liability in relation to the incident, but warned much more needs to be done to improve helicopter safety.
Irwin Mitchell’s Aviation Law team, ranked as one of the leading practices in its field in the UK by independent legal directories, is continuing its work to ensure its clients gain justice and also vital support which will help them in their continued recovery from the incident.
As well as receiving an admission of liability from Bond Aviation Group, the owner and operator of the helicopter involved, the lawyers have also secured vital funding which will allow its clients to receive counselling from next week.
Irwin Mitchell has vast experience in aviation cases and, as well as representing victims of the Clutha tragedy, the firm also acts for those affected by helicopter crashes such as the Eurocopter crashes off the coast of Shetland in August 2013 and in the North Sea in October 2012.
