Causes of Helicopter Accidents
Helicopters can be difficult to operate. Additionally, because they are operated at a lower altitude than other types of aircraft, there is a higher risk of coming in contact with buildings, power lines, trees and other potential hazards.
Common causes of helicopter accidents include:
- Pilot negligence
- Flying in dangerous weather conditions
- Design errors
- Faulty maintenance
- Air traffic controller error
Our lawyers represent victims of both commercial and noncommercial helicopter accidents. We represent people who have been injured while being airlifted in an air ambulance, those injured while on a helicopter sightseeing tour, employees of news organizations covering an event from a helicopter, private helicopter passengers and operators, and others.
