Doyle LLP files product liability lawsuit for E-Cig battery explosion
Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed a product liability lawsuit against Subohmcell LLC, Create A Cig Create A Cig-Marble Falls and Create A Cig LLC on behalf of an air traffic controller who suffered serious injuries when his e-cig battery exploded in his pocket. The suit was filed in District Court in Houston, Texas and will be decided by a jury of Harris County citizens.
Prior to the explosion, the plaintiff in the lawsuit had purchased two Subohmcell 18650 lithium ion batteries at Create A Cig in Waco, Texas. The suit alleges that Subohmcell and Create A Cig deceptively sold, marketed, distributed, manipulated, and manufactured the Subohmcell 18650 batteries. The suit further alleges that they also improperly marketed and labeled the batteries as maintaining a nominal capacity of 2800 milliampere hour (mAh), a nominal voltage of 3.7V, and a nominal current of 35Amp. In reality, the batteries actually maintained a nominal capacity of 2500 mAh, a nominal voltage of 3.6V, and a nominal current of 20Amp.
Due to this mislabeling and the defective nature of their product, the batteries exploded in the plaintiff’s pocket, while at work. As a result of the explosion, the plaintiff sustained second and third-degree burns to his body and was hospitalized in the burn trauma center.
