How Helicopter Accidents Can Occur in Boston
Factors contributing to helicopter accidents can vary. A common cause is pilot error. Some examples of pilot errors can include losing control of the aircraft and failing to recognize hazardous conditions due to impaired, distracted, and tired flying.
A helicopter’s defective design sometimes makes an accident more likely. Faulty components may fail under stress or in an emergency. This is often due to manufacturer defects. Inadequate maintenance can also result in a helicopter accident. If safety inspections are overlooked, crashes can happen. Helicopters without design or manufacturing defects can still crash if critical components fail.
While helicopters generally can fly in bad weather, certain conditions can be dangerous. Sudden changes in wind direction can cause a pilot to lose control, lighting strikes can fry a helicopter’s electronic components, and snow or ice can make it difficult for a pilot to land safely. Flying too close to hazards like electrical and telephone lines is another factor that can cause a helicopter to crash.
Common Types of Injuries in Helicopter Crashes
Helicopters are more likely to be involved in accidents than most other types of aircraft. Because of the small size and relatively open design, there is limited protection for passengers and the pilot if the helicopter goes down.
Some of the common injuries you may sustain if you’re involved in a helicopter crash include:
- Bone fractures
- Blunt force trauma
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Internal brain injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Lacerations and scarring
Fatalities, either from the crash or injury complications, are unfortunately common. If you or a loved one are involved in a helicopter crash, Contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more about your legal options
