Controller Allegedly Didn’t Warn Pilot Before Hudson River Crash and New York Personal Injury Lawyers Examine the Wreckage of Logic




New York, NY (PRWEB) August 21, 2009

In a tragedy that touched the citizens of two nations, a midair crash between a Liberty Tours helicopter and a plane above the Hudson River, killed 9 people including five tourists from Italy and three family members from Pennsylvania, one of them only 16-years old, to the dismay of New York accident lawyers.

The incident greatly attracted attention from both the media and people of New York, personal injury lawyers included. In published reports by the New York Post, it appears that the Teterboro air traffic controller on duty during the midair crash of the plane that hit a helicopter on August 8, was on a distracting cell phone call, talking to his girlfriend about a dead cat when the accident occurred. Not only that, his supervisor, against regulations, allegedly had left the tower.

The tragedy took place on the heavily traveled flight corridor over the Hudson River, where planes and helicopters frequently take tourists up to see the spectacular view of Manhattan.

“What makes this accident even more tragic is that it could have been prevented,” said David Perecman, a New York personal injury lawyer.

In an amateur video, the moment of impact was captured by a tourist, and likely to now be used as evidence for a New York personal injury lawyer.

In those less regulated skies over Manhattan, personal injury lawyers know that sightseers have died before. In another accident that made international headlines and the note pads of many New York personal injury lawyers, Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor were killed during a sightseeing flight over the East River in 2006. The plane they were in crashed into an Upper East Side apartment building.

“In New York, personal injury lawyers find it hard to believe, with any knowledge of the skies and the situations these pilots are flying into, that a controller would be less than100% alert,” added Perecman.

The Teterboro Airport controller and his supervisor, have both been suspended. FAA officials are not yet saying if they believe that the employee’s actions contributed to the accident, however, they have said that the conduct of those on duty was “unacceptable.” Air traffic controllers are expected to be alert at all times while on the clock.

No passengers survived in the crash, and all the bodies were recovered from the Hudson River.

Regardless of the danger and complaints about both noise and safety, federal officials do not appear willing to add restrictions to any flights in the area.

Over most of New York, accident lawyers know, planes are closely monitored by air traffic controllers. But when the weather is clear, in that area over the Hudson, pilots are allowed to fly without calling in to controllers and reporting their positions. Pilots are expected to look out for, and talk to, each other.

“Officials say the investigation is continuing. I’d hope anyone involved in a crash like this, or their loved ones, would do a thorough investigation and find a great New York personal injury lawyer. They’d have a worthwhile case,” said Perecman.
