Samsung Sued in Florida for Smartphone Explosion causing Bodily Harm

1af 888 note 7 explosion


The official recall of the Galaxy Note 7 came ten hours after a Florida man's 20 day old Note 7 exploded in his front pant pocket that wasn't related to recharging the smartphone. The WPTV news channel also reported on another car fire related to the Note 7 in Port St. Lucie Florida.




Specifically, WPTV reports that "A-28-year-old man whose Galaxy Note7 exploded in his pocket while at work in Palm Beach Gardens this month has filed a lawsuit against Samsung, according to his lawyer.


Keith Pierro, a partner with Gold and Gold Law based in Boca Raton and Miami, said his client, Jonathan Strobel, suffered severe and 'deep second-degree burns' on his right thigh and thumb when the phone exploded." The lawsuit is requesting $15,000 in compensatory damages.
