According to recent news reports from Houston Texas 63-year-old Arthur Bill of Spring and 27-year-old Scott James of Houston died on Wednesday March 2 after a skydiving accident that happened around 11:40 a.m. It was reported that the two men crashed into each other after jumping out of an airplane from Skydive Spaceland. Officials also reported that their tangled parachutes did not inflate. James was pronounced dead at the scene. Bill was transported by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries. Two other deaths occurred at Skydive Spaceland in 2008. An investigation into the fatal skydiving accident is being conducted.

When a tragic accident like the one described above occurs there may be one or more liable parties responsible for the accident. The skydiving operation may bear liability if their clients safety was ever put in jeopardy. If a mechanical malfunction of some sort led to this fatal accident a product manufacturer may bear liability or the entity responsible for the proper upkeep of such equipment. Other issues may have been a contributing factor as well. If negligent behavior by any involved party is suspected of contributing to this tragic accident an independent investigation may be conducted that can look into such issues.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
