Many people are familiar with stories of mobile devices and other electronic gadgets catching on fire and causing injury to the people who are using them. If a consumer is using a product according to its instructions and safety warnings and gets injured nonetheless, there is a good chance that product is defective or malfunctioning. The injured consumer may be entitled to compensation for their injuries including medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering, amongst other things. Something that can be tricky about proving product liability cases is there are usually more than one person or party who is responsible for a product’s design, manufacturing, assembly, distribution and sales. Knowing how tricky it can be to find and prove fault when different parties are involved is one of the many reasons that people who are injured because of a faulty or malfunctioning mobile device find it helpful to have a lawyer on their side. At Cohen & Cohen, we are familiar with how to research and prove product liability cases. We believe in shouldering the legal aspects of your claim so that you can focus on healing from your injuries and on trying to get back to your everyday tasks and responsibilities.
Some tips that may be helpful for mobile device users to safely use their devices include but are not limited to:
- Wait until a new model of a technological device has been out for a while. Many
products come with bugs and glitches that need to be worked out once consumers start
to use them. While many of these problems do not cause injury, it is always a good idea
err on the side of safe.
- Do not use a mobile device close to your head while it is charging. There is a significant
electric current being delivered to your device while it is plugged in. In the event of a
power surge or circuit defect in the device or the charger, it can cause electrical fires
and serious burns
- Even if you are hands free, driving and walking and riding a bike while using a mobile
device causes accidents and injuries. Try to limit your mobile device use to times when
you do not need to divide your attention between it and something else.
- Do not sleep with your phone in the same room as you. Many people are no longer
getting enough sleep and into deep sleep because they are too aware of the phones
while they sleep. Some researchers believe there is a radiation risk with mobile devices.
It is important to heed safety warnings and the instructions for safe cell phone use. If you have been injured nonetheless, it may be in your best interest to get the help of an experienced lawyer. To find a lawyer who knows how to deal with mobile device injuries, contact Cohen & Cohen, today.
