As has been reported, the story is actually that the victim was listening to music on his phone when he noticed that the music which was playing on the device actually began to skip itself. And so when he picked up his device in order to see what’s going on, it suddenly exploded and caught fire right in his face.
The lawsuit takes note of the fact that the victim suffered injuries to his eyes as well as his wrist thanks to the incident that took place. The injury which had occurred on the wrist did so due to the fact that the fire caused the man to fall – during which he had used his hand to brace himself. It has also been reported then that the victim actually suffered economic loss courtesy of the incident – of which includes the cost to replace the phone as well as the medical treatment for all the injuries that he has suffered.
