  • Common Causes of Helicopter Accidents in Washington D.C.

    Helicopter crashes can be caused by a variety of factors. Determining the cause of the crash is the first step toward supporting your personal injury case. Some common reasons helicopters can go down include the following examples.

    • Manufacturer defects. All aircraft have to be designed and constructed in a way that ensures pilot and passenger safety. However, some helicopters are made with cheap or untested materials, while others are flawed before their construction even begins. When this happens, helicopter designers and manufacturers can be held liable in a product liability claim.
    • Component failure. Even if a helicopter is designed and assembled without defects, the craft relies on many parts and systems working together. 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. The vast majority of helicopter accidents involve some form of pilot error. This can include loss of aircraft control, improper training, failure to recognize a potential crash situation, or flying while intoxicated, distracted, or overtired. Pilots may also place profits over safety, agreeing to take on passengers despite adverse weather conditions.
    • Obstructions. Helicopter rotors striking an object account for a startlingly high number of crashes. The helicopter blades may contact trees, radio and cell phone towers, and even mountains or buildings. A helicopter that flies too close to a power line, telephone wire, or cable risks entanglement with rotors that can cause the craft to land suddenly in an unsuitable location. Entanglement crashes can occur even when weather conditions are clear and are likely to involve pilot negligence.
