The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced yesterday that the United States federal government should reconsider its safety approval of the lithium ion batteries used in the new Boeing 787 aircraft. According to ABC 6 News, the batteries have a defect that can cause them to overheat, which could potentially result in an Aviation Accident.
The aircrafts began test flights about a month ago, but were quickly grounded after reports were made of the batteries malfunctions, along with several other issues. Since that time, the planes have been grounded while experts work to assess and correct the issues.
An investigation into the incident was launched by the NTSB following the incidents and determined the batteries failure was due to thermal runaway. This occurs when a short in the battery's cells allow for temperatures to reach excessive levels and a fire to begin.
Officials have suggested Boeing use a different battery in the new aircraft, dubbed the Dreamliner, but doing so would result in heavier weights for the aircraft and less efficient burning of fuels.
In the meantime, the planes have only been cleared for test flights until the issue is resolved.
The Ohio Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy say aviation law requires all aspects of commercial aircraft to undergo extensive testing to reduce the chances of a defective piece of equipment causing an accident and encourage anyone who has been injured by faulty aircraft equipment to discuss their case with an attorney.
