Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif., in January. All passengers on board the flight died instantly upon impact, according to newly revealed details.
Vanessa Bryant, Kobe's wife, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company, Island Express Helicopters, and pilot Ara Zobayan in February following the death of her husband and daughter. She claims that Zobayan was careless and negligent by flying in cloudy conditions on the day all passengers aboard the aircraft were killed.
She also states that she is "entitled" to hundreds of millions in future lost earnings as a result of the Los Angeles Lakers legend's death.
Last month, the National Transportation Safety Board urged major helicopter manufacturers to add crash-resistant systems to record data, audio and images following the death of Bryant, Fox Business reports.
