A Thin Line

Helicopter Power Lines / Wrongful Death Attorneys / Orlando Oviedo Winter Springs Altamonte Springs Winter Park Lawyers / Beers and Gordon P.A.Wrongful death suits are so rarely, if ever, about vengeance or payback or even the bitterest of feelings. In most of these cases, the issue is compensation for loss, the kind of loss that could have been avoided. Take the case of Winco Powerline Services as an example, a helicopter company out of Aurora, Oregon.

In 2017, two workers were suspended from one of the company’s helicopters, dangling over power lines in Louisiana, but the rope they were hanging from broke when it rubbed up against another “high-tension” line in the area. Families of the two men believed they had a case and the court just awarded them $14.6 million, reasoning that both men were in their twenties and would have had lengthy careers along with steady incomes for decades to come. Attorneys argued that a better, stronger line, along with a spotter and a co-pilot would have been sufficient to save both men.
