Vanessa Bryant Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Attorneys for Vanessa Bryant have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter operating company that crashed last month and claimed the lives of her husband Kobe, daughter Gianna and seven other people.

The complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Island Express Helicopters and Island Express Holding Corp. alleged that pilot Ara Zobayan, who also died in the crash, failed “to use ordinary care in piloting the subject aircraft” and was “negligent.”

“Defendant Island Express Helicopters’ breach of its duty and negligence caused the injuries and damages complained of herein and Plaintiffs’ deceased, Kobe Bryant, was killed as a direct result of the negligent conduct of Zobayan for which Defendant Island Express Helicopters is vicariously liable in all respects,” the lawsuit said.

The 27-count complaint seeks general damages, economic damages, punitive damages and more.
