place and taking off or landing without a runway. It is these capabilities that have made them essential pieces of equipment for law enforcement, executive transport, sightseeing/recreation, medical evacuation, supply transport and military operations.
However, with all of the great benefits comes a heavy burden. Helicopters are intricate machines that require the highest levels of design, construction, maintenance and operational skill. If any one of these components is missing or neglected, the results can be disastrous.

- Pilot error. Pilots are human. Just like people in any other career, they sometimes make mistakes. When those mistakes result in (or contribute to) injury accidents, the victims and their loved ones may be entitled to pursue legal action.
- Design error. Mistakes with the design of helicopter components can occur. Sometimes, these errors are harmless. In other cases, such mistakes can have catastrophic consequences.
- Manufacturer defect. In some cases, an engine or other helicopter part can have hidden defects which only become known when an accident occurs. In such accidents, the companies involved in manufacturing and distributing the part may bear responsibility for resulting injury accidents.
- Maintenance failure. Helicopters are major pieces of machinery, which require periodic and routine maintenance to continue working correctly. Breakdowns in the maintenance schedule or shoddy workmanship can lead to helicopter accidents.
- Poor weather conditions. Pilots or companies that own and operate helicopters cannot control the weather. However, they are responsible for taking proper precautions and operating their helicopters appropriately for the weather conditions.
