In another alleged case of a cell phone going boom, Muhammad Sattar is suing LG in a federal court in Brooklyn after the IT specialist’s LG Optimus F6 exploded in his pants pocket on January 13th of this year.
The explosion is said to have caused 2nd and 3rd-degree burns on Sattar’s hand and right leg. Then on top of that, a result of some very necessary skin grafts, he missed at least a month of work at the Manhattan investment bank that employs him. That is what his case states.
Sattar said that he had been using the LG Optimus F6 for months when it suddenly burst into flames. His attorney, Lawrence Goldhirsch, said “It was just in his pocket, sitting there, and it blew up.” So it seems pretty clear cut to them. Nothing wrong, it just decided to blow up as we have heard time and time again. As you may know, the phone was launched in the U.S. on September 11th, in 2013.
After the explosion, Sattar was taken immediately to Weill Cornell Medical Center. There, he was admitted to the hospital’s burn center. We will have to see if anything else comes up in court and if he successfully sues them.
