Investigating The Causes Of Helicopter Accidents

Helicopter accidents are caused by at least one of the following:

  • Operational error
  • Mechanical malfunction
  • Electrical malfunction

Of course, each component needs to work with the other two components to ensure a safe flight. Working with aviation experts, I obtain vital information regarding the helicopter's engine, rotors, drive shafts, gears, electronics, flight controls and landing gear. I also am given information to build a claim based on factors that may involve:

  • Failing to operate a helicopter within safety standards
  • Failing to have a safe flight plan
  • Failing to properly maintain the aircraft
  • Improper maintenance
  • Faulty manufacturing
  • Electrical source malfunctions
  • Electrical shorts
  • Inadequate safety testing
  • Inadequate quality control
