Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman Files Robinson Helicopter Company Suit

Michael Lin Baum is an attorney with several decades of experience and who serves as Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman’s (BHAG) managing partner and president. Drawing on his experience as a lawyer, Michael Lin Baum helps others in the firm as they prepare their cases before taking them to trial.

Since being established more than 40 years ago, BHAG has been involved in a range of cases, most recently filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the Robinson Helicopter Company. The suit, filed by attorneys Ronald L. M. Goldman and Timothy A. Loranger, argues that Robinson’s helicopters have several specific design flaws, each of which could lead to a system failure while in flight.

BHAG suggests that this is what led to the deaths of Mark Croce and Michael Capriotto as they flew a new Robinson R66 helicopter. In the filing, the law firm highlights witness testimony suggesting that the helicopter was having difficulty in the air, despite Mr. Croce being an experienced pilot.

Mark Croce’s wife Jessica and his minor children are the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which claims negligence, breach of warranty, and strict products liability.
