Compensation being sought following helicopter deaths

Compensation being sought following helicopter deaths

Compensation is being sought by the families of 16 men killed in a recent helicopter crash.

In April this year, a Super Puma aircraft came down in the North Sea, resulting in the deaths of two pilots and 14 passengers.

The accident occurred close to Rattray Head, which is an area located on the east coast of Buchan in Aberdeenshire in the north-east of Scotland.

A team of legal experts is now working on behalf of the victims' families in a bid to pursue damages claims against the helicopter owner's insurance provider, the Aberdeen Evening Express reports.

They say that is it too early at this stage to predict how much the compensation claims could be worth.

However, the Evening Express suggests that a number of factors, including the age of the men, the number of children they have and their salaries, will be considered in the event of payouts.
