Wrongful death of a basketball star
Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna died in a helicopter crash. A lot of people were saddened by this incident. We lost a basketball star, an icon, an inspiration, a philanthropist, an artist, and for many, a good friend. We continue to pray for the families of Kobe, Gianna, and everyone who died because of that accident. May they find enough strength during these difficult times.
The helicopter didn’t just crash for no reason. Accidents like that typically don’t just happen. They’re usually caused by the negligence of a person, a series of critical events, or both. And because someone has to be held responsible for that horrible even, Kobe’s wife, Vanessa, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter’s operator and the estate of the pilot.
The lawsuit says “Defendant Island Express Helicopters authorized, directed and/or permitted a flight with full knowledge that the subject helicopter was flying into unsafe weather conditions”. It also says that Kobe Bryant died “as a direct result of the negligent conduct of Zobayan”. It’s now up to the attorneys of the plaintiff to prove the claims made in the wrongful death lawsuit.
May this tragic incident teach us all to follow rules and regulations. They are in place to protect us and to keep us all safe.
We at Darfoor Law pray for the eternal rest of the souls of Kobe, Gianna, and to everyone else who perished in that accident.
