As cell phones and smartphones become more and more a part of our everyday lives, so do cell phone related injuries. These injuries are caused by different things. One thing that is perhaps more common for people to have heard about on the news and through friends and family, are accidents from people texting or talking on the phone while driving, biking, running and walking. People doing these things have caused accidents where severe injuries and death are the result. People have also been injured and killed while they were safely doing the above activities in a legal manner but because someone wasusing their cell phone in an unsafe and irresponsible manner, an unavoidable accident was caused.
Personal injuries that are in a different vein than accidents related to our roads and sidewalks often come from cell phones overheating, exploding batteries, and fires caused by overheating. Given that people often have their cell phones in or near their hands, and near their faces, these injuries can be much more severe than when other parts of the body are subjected to these kinds of injuries. The skin on the face, especially around the eyes, nose, mouth, and ears, is more delicate than skin on other parts of the body. Human hair is highly flammable. Scarves, shirts and other items of clothing that are worn near where a person might be holding their faulty cell phone, can also be prone to catching on fire and absorbing toxic liquids such as battery acid.
Cell Phone Related Legal Issues
When it comes to vehicle and pedestrian accidents involving inappropriate and unsafe cell phone use, a defendant is often accused of negligent or reckless behavior. If someone is injured because of someone else’s negligent, reckless, or malicious behavior, the victim may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury claim.
If someone is injured because of a faulty or malfunctioning cell phone, they may be entitled to compensation from a product liability claim. Because there are usually more than one party involved in the design, manufacturing, assembly, distribution, and in some cases, selling of a cell phone, there may be more than one party at fault in a product liability personal injury claim.
