Causes of Battery Explode

Samsung recalled approximately 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 devices after concluding that faulty batteries were the cause of the explosions. Li-ion batteries come fitted with a circuitry meant to allow only the right amount of charge. However, a battery manufacturing defect, shock due to mishandling, and short-circuiting may mean a fault in this critical component of a battery. That results in the chemical reaction often referred to as a ‘thermal runaway’ that leads to the heat build-up, swelling, and a battery explode in the worst scenario.

Battery Explosion Injuries

Irrespective of the size, battery explosions can cause severe injuries. Cases of the face and corneal injuries have been reported due to watch and car battery explosion. Dry cell explosions scenarios leading to orofacial soft tissue injuries and the fracturing of mandibles have been on the rise. Not to forget that some victims of a battery explosion have sustained severe burn injuries on the face, thighs, upper arms, and trunk.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
