  • Factors Contributing to Helicopter Crashes

    Several factors can lead to a helicopter crash in St. Louis. A helicopter accident may be caused by one or several of the following.

    Manufacturer Defects

    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.

    A Component Fails or Malfunctions

    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.

    Pilot Error

    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.

    Inadequate Maintenance

    Sometimes, helicopter maintenance is outsourced to unqualified personnel. 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.

    Flying Too Close to Obstructions

    Helicopter rotors striking an object account for a startlingly high number of crashes. 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.
