Were you harmed by an exploding Samsung phone?

Our Blog | October 17, 2016

Samsung’s Note 7 smartphones are blowing up and causing severe physical and property damage. The company is recalling these phones, including replacement phones, and now it is shutting down the entire Note 7 line.

But for those who have been injured by a Note 7 explosion, it’s too late.

What kinds of injuries?

Most injuries have been burns and chemical burns. The phones usually explode while charging, but they have also exploded in people’s pockets and in their hands. Battery fires can then ignite other fires, resulting in additional damage and injury. Deaths have even been reported from problems with previous phones.

Rosenthal Law has been quick to address the problem of Samsung phone injuries, seeking compensation for people injured in the Roseville and Sacramento area.

Why are they exploding?

The Note 7 is powered by a lithium ion battery, which is known to have problems. Phone makers still use lithium ion batteries because they are light but powerful. Their very power is what makes them dangerous.

What can be done?

You can file a suit against Samsung to pay for medical bills, time lost from work, and the pain and suffering the injuries have caused you.
