Why Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Dangerous?
The danger lies in the phone’s battery, which contains a design defect that can lead to sudden explosions, causing severe burns among other damages. Like other products such as electronic cigarettes (e-cigs), the Galaxy Note 7 uses a lithium-ion battery which contains a highly flammable liquid which can explode when exposed to any number of factors. Unfortunately, many of these conditions, such as internal short-circuiting, can exist during the product’s normal, everyday use.
Device failures and explosions may be caused by factors including:
- Continued contact with abrasive metals
- Exposure to high temperatures
- Puncturing of the battery’s shell
- Internal short circuiting
- Overcharging the device
Compensation for the Injured
Whether you were burned in an explosion, suffered hearing loss, or were injured in another fashion due to a Galaxy Note 7 explosion, you may be eligible for compensation. However, once you agree to the terms and value of a settlement, you may not be given another chance to negotiate. For this reason, it is critical that your restitution adequately covers your damages. Between skin graft procedures and permanent scarring, a burn injury can require extensive medical attention. At Karsman, McKenzie & Hart, our attorneys possess an in-depth knowledge of the product liability cases involving Samsung products and understand how to maximize the strength of your case.
We can help you to recover damages including:
- Initial medical bills and hospitalization costs
- Missed work and lost wages
