Negligence is the Common Cause of Helicopter Accidents
The most common cause of a helicopter accident is negligence. This can include a manufacturer defect. Occasionally, shortcuts are taken in the manufacturing process. If cheap or untested materials are used or the design is flawed, an accident can occur. When this happens, helicopter designers and manufacturers can be held liable in a product liability claim.
Other types of negligence include inadequate maintenance. Sometimes, helicopter maintenance is outsourced to unqualified personnel. The helicopter blades may strike trees, radio and cell phone towers, and even mountains or buildings. A helicopter flying too close to a power line, telephone wire, or cable can become entangled with the rotors, which can cause the craft to land suddenly in an unsuitable location. Entanglement crashes are often due to pilot negligence.
Other Factors Affecting Helicopter Safety
Along with negligence, other factors can cause a helicopter crash. Pilot error is a common cause of helicopter accidents. Some examples of pilot error include the loss of aircraft control, improper training, failure to recognize a potential crash situation, or flying while intoxicated, distracted, or overtired. Pilots may even override caution and attempt to take off and/or land in bad weather.
Various components on a helicopter will need replacing due to normal wear and tear. Any part that is replaced, installed, or fitted on the aircraft has the potential to fail, putting occupants at risk during flight. Common malfunctioning helicopter components include electrical systems, seat belts, safety harnesses, and rotor systems.
If a crash occurs, Morgan & Morgan may be able to help determine who is liable for quality control, regular maintenance, and routine inspections—and whether an unsafe or untested craft was placed in service.
