Vanessa Bryant has already taken the company who made the helicopter involved in Kobe and Gianna’s death, to court and now the rest of the rest of the families involved are doing the same.
The surviving members of the Altobelli family and Mauser family claim the Island Express’s negligence was reason for the death of their loved ones.
According to TMZ, both suits claim Island Express negligently and carelessly breached its duty to own, lease, manage, maintain, control, entrust, charter and operate the helicopter in question in a reasonable manner.
They claim as a direct result of this negligent behavior by the company, their loved ones died in the crash, which has caused more than physical, emotional, mental damage for them. The families want damages, both over their own turmoil, but also for what their loved ones could have earned themselves if they had survived the crash and continued to work.
As for Island Express, their insurance policy will only cover so much.
