There Are Serious Potential Dangers of Toy Hoverboards

Hoverboards were one of the most sought-after items during the holidays. Unfortunately, many of them were not safe for children or adults. They caused so many injuries that the Consumer Product Safety Commission began investigating them as fire hazards.

If you, your child or another family member was injured by a hoverboard, you may be entitled to compensation.

Did a Hoverboard Cause Burn Injuries?

Hoverboards are powered by lithium-ion batteries, which must be recharged periodically. Lithium-ion batteries are used in many products, including laptop computers, and have been known to catch fire.

These batteries appear to be the cause of hoverboard fires as well. While some hoverboards started on fire during use, others caught fire when they were plugged in to recharge the batteries. Owners of hoverboards that caught fire experienced losses ranging from property damage to their homes to burn injuries.

Negligent corporations, manufacturers and distributors must be held accountable for the damage and suffering they cause when they release defective products such as these. You can trust in our experience pursuing product liability claims. We will aggressively seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and property damage.
