Whenever an accident occurs, there's typically an initial period of chaos as every scrambles to react and take care of the situation. The level of chaos that is reached will be determined by how prepared the individuals are and what kind of plans are in place to deal with the particular scenario. These situations can happen in the marine and offshore drilling industry, due to riser failure or other accidents, and as we've seen, when there is not proper preparation, the consequences can be catastrophic.

Even when that early confusion and panic subsides, there always remains a lot of questions. One of the first questions that is going to be asked is what went wrong. In some cases, making this discovery is easy because the problem is obvious but more often than not, the specific cause of an accident will be more complex and require a marine accident investigation. It's important to determine the cause of an accident, utilizing a marine accident investigation if necessary, because without that knowledge, it makes it impossible to move forward with answering the other questions that need to be solved.
