Five former owners of smartphones Galaxy Note7 from South Korea have filed a lawsuit against Samsung
When the number of ignitions of smartphones Galaxy Note7 exceeded a certain threshold, Samsung undertook to investigate the problem. In particular, it tried to contact the victims in order to clarify the details and make sure that the fire actually took place.
As a result, some users have received allegations of fraud. But five people decided to defend themselves in court, filing a lawsuit against Samsung. They argue that the support center Samsung once called them scammers when they asked for help in connection with the fire smartphone. Users were accused of the desire to receive compensation based on false statements.
The lawsuits were filed separately, so that Samsung will be five trials. The first will begin in the current half of the year. The lawyers argue that the situation is favourable to the plaintiffs, as Samsung has already acknowledged that the problem was the batteries.
