Samsung Galaxy Note7 Class Action Commenced in Canada
LONDON, ON -- November 07, 2016 -- McKenzie Lake Lawyers, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit with respect to Samsung Galaxy Note7 phones.
Galaxy Note7 phones were released in Canada in August 2016. Shortly thereafter, reports began to surface indicating the devices were overheating, catching fire, and exploding. On September 12, 2016, Health Canada issued an advisory noting that the Note7 has the potential to overheat and burn, posing a fire hazard, and therefore, a threat to public safety. On October 10, 2016, Samsung halted global sales of the Note7 and the next day announced that production of the Note7 was permanently terminated. Approximately 39,000 Note7 devices were sold or distributed in Canada.
The claim alleges that the Defendants were negligent as they knew or ought to have known that the way they produced, marketed, and sold their Note7 devices could result in harm to consumers.
Matthew Baer, of McKenzie Lake Lawyers explains: "We believe that through this action, the Defendants will be required to account for their actions in bringing these devices to market. Canadians who owned these devices deserve to be properly compensated."
