What’s the Problem?

June 29, 2017 – According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff Scott Schroeck was checking on a load of lumber in his truck when he felt a burning sensation in his front pocket, according to the Chicago Tribune. He said he had put a spare lithium-ion battery in each pocket for his e-cigarette.

Schroeck’s wife, Denise, alleges that she lost her husband’s companionship after the incident. The complaint alleges the batteries were defective and that no warnings were provided on the risk of explosion.

Defendants in the case include Rockin Vape, Tobacco Zone and battery manufacturer LG. Plaintiffs are alleging damages of negligence and product liability. The complaint was filed earlier this week in Cook County circuit court.
