What Do We Know about Lithium-Ion Battery Lawsuits?

Lithium-ion battery lawsuits have received widespread attention after several high-profile accidents involving exploding batteries. In 2016, there were numerous reports of Samsung Galaxy 7 phones spontaneously exploding. In addition, reports of hoverboard, e-cigarettes, and laptops catching on fire have led to product recalls and lawsuits.

Lithium-ion batteries contain lithium ions that generate power by traveling between negative and positive electrodes. Lithium produces a large amount of power from a small cell, which makes it an ideal metal for batteries. Lithium-ion batteries provide higher voltage than other rechargeable batteries and discharge at a slower rate. When a lithium-ion battery explodes, the malfunction is usually the result of the manufacturer failing to incorporate certain safety features or negligently integrating the battery into its product.

Explosions from lithium-ion batteries can result in serious injuries including facial burns, scarring, hearing and vision impairment, burns on the throat or esophagus, permanent disability, and death. Injuries may occur to both the user of the device and anyone in close vicinity to the user.
