Families Filed A Lawsuit Against Helicopter Firm In Kobe Bryant Crash

On January 26, the world was thrown in mourning following the death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant alongside eight others including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

The families of four passengers who were killed in the helicopter have filed a lawsuit against the firms that owned and operated the chopper.

The lawsuits were filed on Sunday in the Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of the families of basketball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri and their 13-year-old daughter Alyssa, who played basketball with Gianna and of assistant coach Christina Mauser, celebrity gossip website TMZ said.

The complaints accuse Island Express Helicopters and Island Express Holding Corp. of negligence.

We earlier reported that Bryant’s widow Vanessa also filed a  wrongful death lawsuit against the Fillmore-based Island Express Holding Corp. and Island Express Helicopters in relation to the death of her husband Kobe and their daughter Gigi.

Vanessa’s attorneys filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that the company who owned the Sikorsky S-76B helicopter, Island Express Helicopters and Island Express Holding Corp, were only allowed to fly under visual flight rules, and the conditions the day of the crash were not conducive for such flying.
