Crash of de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver in Ontario, Canada

Speiser Krause is investigating the crash of a de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver aircraft that crashed during an attempted takeoff in the early morning of June 16, 2024.  The four passengers were set to enjoy a fly-fishing trip when they were being transported from the Operator’s base in Ontario, Canada to a remote lake.  Two of the passengers were seriously injured, one of whom tragically passed away in the hospital days after the crash.  It has been reported that the two other passengers and the pilot were treated for minor injuries.

Speiser Krause has extensive experience involving de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver and DHC-3 Otter aircraft, recently concluding litigation involving a midair collision in Alaska involving these types of aircraft.  Speiser Krause has also litigated numerous crashes in Canada recently resolving litigation involving the crash of a Kaman K-1200 helicopter that crashed during heli-logging operations in British Columbia, Canada, in which the pilot was killed.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (similar to the National Transportation Safety Board) has sent two investigators to the crash scene to gather evidence and assess the causal factors in the crash.  Partners Douglas A. Latto and Jeanne M. O’Grady are monitoring the accident investigation.
