I was reading a discussion today on Face Book of a vape shop being sued because a battery exploded after being put in a pocket. Their insurance carrier got involved and they said they would most likely settle the case because challenging the case in court would take years and end up costing more than settling. The insurance carrier also informed them that they would be dropping them after the case was resolved. Some comments from the post: "Anyone have any luck in defending a battery incident? If so who was the attorney? This person put the mod in their pocket." "Our case was the dude never even bought a battery from us at all but yet still tried to sue us. Cost us some money but not no where near the 480k they wanted. Only thing we paid was lawyer fees." "We had a similar incident. We got a lawsuit letter. Guy had a battery vent in his pocket. Contacted a ambulance chasing law office. They sent us a letter. We didn't respond. The sent another letter stating they were going to file a lawsuit against out employees if they didn't hear back. We contacted an attorney he advised us to send them our insurance info. They contacted our insurance company. Insurance said they wont paying .... and we havent heard anything else from it in over a year." "We were in litigation for 2.5 years. Luckily the insurance company covered it." "Since then we have created a battery safety card that everyone receives and they sign a waiver stating that we went over battery safety and that they received the card. Our insurance companies don't insure batteries for product liability anymore." "why not sell a battery that is insured HOHMTECH and chip protected." "that’s all we sell now." "This sign (pictured above) hangs behind our register and we make them do a waver sheet"
