Supreme Court Upholds Dismissal Of Injured Greenwood Pilot’s Lawsuit

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Mississippi Supreme Court has upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit filed over a helicopter accident that left its pilot partially paralyzed. Justices ruled 6-2 last week that Rob Hammons of Greenwood filed his complaint against the defendants after the three-year statute of limitations had expired. Hammons was working for Provine Helicopter Services spraying herbicides on timber from one of the company’s aircraft in October 2009 when it crashed, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. The National Transportation Safety Board investigated the accident and published its report 18 months later saying the probable cause of the crash was a loss of engine power because of fuel contamination.
