Lawsuit Filed Against Amazon.com, Inc. in Exploding Cell Phone Charger Case

A lawsuit was filed against Amazon.com, Inc. due to permanent injuries sustained from an exploding iPhone charger.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, March 10, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Julian Bradley of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Hatboro, PA) filed a personal injury lawsuit against Amazon.com, Inc. and EasyAcc.com, Inc. on March 1, 2017. The incident involves a wireless iPhone charger, the EasyAcc Ichoc Power Bank 5000, that exploded in the right pocket of the plaintiff, leaving him with significant burns and permanent injuries.

The lawsuit was filed by Feeda R. Musitief, Esquire of Fine And Staud, LLC, holding each defendant accountable for negligent and reckless acts. The charger was manufactured by EasyAcc and sold to the plaintiff’s fiance by Amazon, leaving both distributors at fault. The lawsuit requests damages greater than $50,000 plus interest. There is video of the incident, as well.

The incident in question occurred on or about March 18, 2016, less than a year after the wireless charger was purchased. The lawsuit claims that at all material times, the charger was unreasonably dangerous and unsafe for use by the average consumer as it could ignite, explode, and/or catch fire, posing serious harm to members of the public.

“An exploding cell phone charger ignited on my client, causing severe burns,” said Musitief. “What happened here was horrific and completely preventable. We believe and intend to prove that the defendants in this case had knowledge that their product posed imminent danger to the public but deliberately chose not to warn. He deserves compensation for the negligence shown by the distribution and sale of the product.”

Mr. Bradley was unaware of the impending danger his charger posed due to the neglect of the Defendants and failure to warn the public. According to the lawsuit, information and belief is presented that both Defendants were aware of prior incidents of an exploding charger without informing the public while continuing to market the product. There is a list of 27 issues presented in the case that show negligence for EasyAcc and Amazon.

The injuries that resulted from the explosion of the cell phone charger are serious and permanent, according to Musitief and the complaint that was filed with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. With injury and bodily harm up the right thigh, leg, hand, and muscles, Bradley has suffered emotional distress, pain and suffering, and economic losses.

The complaint claims that the distribution of the charger was below industry standards for Amazon, demonstrating recklessness and reckless disregard to the health and well-being of the plaintiff. The lawsuit is demanding punitive damages from Defendants to deter further harmful conduct.

If aware of any other incidents involving the EasyAcc Ichoc Power Bank 5000 charger and/or bodily harm suffered from an explosion or carelessness, please contact Musitief. The complaint, filed on March 1, 2017, demands a trial by jury.
