Another day, another lawsuit. Gustafson Nicolai, a Los Angeles-based law firm, has filed three more lawsuits against Apple in less than a month over “exploding” iPhones. That brings their total to five lawsuits in the matter.
The lawsuits set forth claims for “general negligence and products liability in connection with iPhone 6 devices overheating, exploding, and causing significant burns to Plaintiffs’ bodies, as well as other injuries and suffering.” The lawsuits seek damages for, among other things, wage loss, loss of use of property, hospital and medical expenses, mental and emotional suffering and anguish, general damage, property damage, and loss of earning capacity. In both cases, the plaintiffs seek punitive and exemplary damages.
