As e-cigarettes, vape pens and similar products become more common, so do the injuries and damages caused by the lithium-ion batteries that power those devices. Because this technology is relatively new, lawyers are working to develop the best strategies for litigating these cases.
Because cases relating to lithium-ion battery explosions usually involve significant damage to the battery itself, there are unique obstacles to be faced by injured parties and their attorneys. If you are injured by an exploding battery, how do you identify the manufacturer of the battery? How do you show that the explosion was not your fault? How do you proceed with a lawsuit against a manufacturer from another country?
While these issues can complicate claims made against the manufacturer of an exploding lithium-ion battery, they can be overcome by an attorney with experience in this type of litigation.
