Samsung Battery Explosion Lawyer in California

Lithium-ion battery incidents may not be causing the number of injuries that car accidents do each year, but the string of explosions in Samsung devices have caused catastrophic injuries to Californians. If you have suffered an injury due to a Samsung battery explosion or another device, it’s important to work with an experienced California personal injury lawyer. At the Johnson Attorneys Group, we fight to get the compensation you deserve from your battery explosion accident. Call 1-800-235-6801 for a free consultation.

Understanding Lithium-Ion Battery Explosions

The compact but powerful batteries used in today’s cell phone devices are considered to have a low risk of incident. The most common way that Samsung batteries fail is traceable back to a manufacturer defect issue. Defective batteries can combust, causing fires and explosions that burn the skin, damage property and even cause devastating injuries. This happens when the poles inside the lithium-ion products are not properly separated. The breakdown creates a “thermal runway,” and the small batteries heat up to more than 1,000 degrees in many cases. They may burst into flames or explode. Similarly, the thermal runway effect can occur because battery designers try to pack too much energy into a unit and don’t build a pole separator strong enough to withstand the test of time. This also can result in a fire or explosion. The basic problem stems from not building a reasonably safe product. It’s important to recognize that the same batteries used in Samsung devices are also placed in things such as hoverboards, laptops, e-cigarette vapes, flashlights and others.

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable

It’s important for you to understand that battery fires and explosions are not just random accidents. Manufacturers, distributors and other companies involved with lithium-ion batteries are required to put safe products in the hands of consumers. The fact that these products are gaining widespread headlines about people suffering catastrophic injuries demonstrates they are not entirely safe.

Battery manufacturers bear the burden of product liability and can be held accountable for the losses suffered by everyday Californians that trusted them. These billion-dollar battery sellers and device companies such as Samsung may also be liable for victims of battery malfunctions.

In California, you may be entitled to compensation for losses that include the following.

  • Hospital Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Reconstructive Surgery
  • Rehabilitation Costs
  • Property Damage
  • Non-Economic Damages

Big lithium-ion battery corporations earn billions of dollars in annual revenue. It is fundamentally unfair that you should suffer a loss and shoulder the expenses due to one of their defective products.

Are You Injured

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
