Last week several people were seriously injured during the Albuquerque International Hot Air Balloon Festival. Witnesses to one incident reported that a hot air balloon got tangled in electrical wires and caught fire. Both persons in the balloon were treated for severe burns. The links embedded below provide preliminary news coverage of these flight-related tragedy and we at Pilot Law, P.C. are actively investigating these unfortunate incidents. We are keenly sympathetic to affected parties in tragedies such as these, having litigated dozens like them in courts throughout the country and abroad. In cases such as these, affected parties may have legal recourse against various entities, including the hot air balloon and/or component manufacturers and the owner/operator of the hot air balloon. We at Pilot Law, P.C. bring years’ of experience and expertise to bear and will diligently and relentlessly pursue the truth on behalf of the victims and their families.
