Samsung has recently halted production of their Note 7 device after reports of its battery exploding. Samsung made an attempt to fix this issue when they released a replacement phone for users, but it looks like the replacement is also bad.
There have been numerous reports of the explosions of the devices causing damage to property and even injury in some cases—for both versions of the phone.
Here is what we know:
With such a dangerous product out on the market, what recourse is there?
This is a perfect example of why Lawyers exist: To keep the public safe by forcing manufacturers to make safe products, and holding them responsible when they sell unsafe products that cause injury.
Lawyers play a big role in keeping the public safe in more ways than one. From the soap, we buy to the cars we drive to the phones we use.
There’s a reason why you hardly have to think about a product's safety when you or a loved one is using it.
Safety is the rule; legal responsibility to the injured victim is the consequence that keeps manufacturers making safe products.
So what happens now? What role will a personal injury lawyer take in a situation like the exploding Note 7?
Arizona law allows compensation to a person injured by the fault of others. Compensation means medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and disfigurement and disability.
Why and how did this Samsung failure happen? How could such a huge company let this happen? Rush to market? Other?
Regardless, people are getting hurt. Samsung is and will be legally responsible. Lawyers are the gatekeepers.
