Not long ago, a Houston man was traveling in a helicopter, when it suddenly experienced engine failure and crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. Tragically, the man did not survive and left behind a wife and two young children. After this heartbreaking incident, the man’s distraught family was unsure of where to turn or how to cope with this loss, so they contacted The Krist Law Firm, P.C. to discuss any legal recourses available to them.

The experienced Texas wrongful death attorney, Scott C. Krist went over their options and immediately began working on the family’s behalf to file lawsuits against the helicopter company as well as the deceased pilot’s estate based on product liability and overall negligence. Under attorney Krist’s skillful representation, we successfully recovered $9,650,000 in damages for the man’s estate, less the total case expenses of $238,167.14 and a 40% attorney fee. While this case was unable to restore the immense loss they experienced, in the end, Scott C. Krist was able to provide some much-needed peace of mind and financial relief for a grieving family.
