Common Causes of Helicopter Accidents in Brooklyn
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) cites poor decisions as the number-one cause of helicopter accidents. Poor decisions can be made by the pilot, air traffic control personnel, or by the ground crew. Some other common causes of helicopter crashes include:
- Pilot error
- Mistakes by air traffic controllers and others on the ground
- Decisions to fly in dangerous weather
- Defective equipment
- Inadequate maintenance
Aviation accidents often result in deaths or severe injuries like burns and spinal and brain damage. Other injuries can lead to permanent disability. These injuries, resulting from someone else’s carelessness, are preventable tragedies. Since most helicopter accidents are caused by negligence, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. If the crash results in the death of a loved one, you may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.
Proving Negligence in a Helicopter Accident
Proving negligence in an aviation accident is rarely as easy as assigning blame to the pilot. While pilot error can be a cause, sometimes others are responsible for the crash. This can include the manufacturer of the helicopter. A design flaw or improper assembly methods can lead to mechanical failure. The maintenance crew may also be fully or partially responsible, along with the owner of the aircraft. Remember, the pilot and owner aren’t always the same individual.
Some helicopter accidents are caused by the negligent actions of several people, and this can add to the complexity of your personal injury and/or wrongful death claim. Contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more about your accident case.
