It was reported today that a helicopter crash off the Glenn Highway killed Michael Seward, 37, of Palmer; Thomas Middleton, 46, of Anchorage; Joseph
O’Donnell, 48, of Girdwood; and Benoit Pin, a 39-year-old Anchorage pilot for
Era Helicopters. Quinn Ellington, 14, was also injured in the crash.
These families need to immediately contact legal counsel in Alaska. Crashes like this are not supposed to happen – and rarely happen without a mistake being made by the pilot and/or the helicopter’s maintenance organization. Remember, the Statute of Limitations for bringing a personal injury / wrongful death claim in Alaska is only two years. It would be wise to take immediate action.
