Wrongful Death Lawsuits Filed - Kobe Bryant Helicopter Crash

Two of the families whose relatives were killed in the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash in January of this year have filed wrongful death lawsuits against the company that owned and operated the helicopter, Island Express. The lawsuit alleges that Island Express was "negligent and careless, in regard to owning, leasing, managing, maintaining, controlling, entrusting, chartering, and operating" the helicopter in question and that Island Express' negligence caused the death of all those aboard the aircraft. Further, the lawsuit seeks wrongful death damages for funeral and burial expenses and "all other damages by law."

Nine people died in the helicopter crash on January 26 in Calabasas, California, including both John Altobelli and Christina Mauser. The Altobelli and Mauser families now bring wrongful death lawsuits against Island Express. It is not yet known whether the families of the other victims, Payton Chester, Sarah Chester, and pilot Ara Zobayan, will join the lawsuit.
