Texas injury attorney, Texas defective product lawyerOn September 15, an official recall went out for all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones sold before the recall date. This Samsung model, a competitor of the iPhone, has been plagued since its release with reports that the batteries in the phones not only overheat, but they may catch fire. The recall notice states about one million phones were sold throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. There have been 92 reports of batteries overheating. Because of the potential for injury, the Consumer Product Safety Commission states consumers of these phones should immediately stop using the device and contact their wireless carrier to receive a new phone or a refund.

Defective Batteries Cause Injuries

A phone’s battery overheating is a big deal when people expect their cells phones to work 24 hours per day. But this recall was even more important than battery life because the Galaxy Note 7’s defective batteries led to 26 reports of burns on users and 55 reports of property damage, including fires in some users’ cars or garages. The phone apparently becomes too hot during charging, but some injuries have occurred while the phone was in someone’s pocket.
