Class Action Lawsuit Lawyers

Apple Watch Screen Defect Class-Action

When most people think of Apple, they think about high-quality, luxury, and style. However, these descriptive words couldn’t be further from the truth for some Apple customers. For example, some owners of the MacBook Pro have complained about issues with the butterfly keyboard. Meanwhile, others have had problems with an Apple Watch screen design defect.

In fact, so many people have complained about Apple Watch screens that a class action lawsuit now stands against the technology giant. In other words, rather than filing individually, all those who have experienced the issue are joining the class action lawsuit to put a case to Apple.

Defective Apple Watches

Apple series 3 watchWhat are the claims against Apple? After ordering an Apple Watch, going through the excitement of having it delivered, and then proudly showing it off to friends and family, many Apple Watch owners have experienced one of the following problems:

  • Hairline cracks on the screen
  • Screens detaching from the main watch
  • Shattered screens

For a company that has a reputation for quality and user experience, these claims came as quite a shock to the industry. Yet, this isn’t the first time that Apple has been put under the microscope. Defects with laptop models led to a keyboard replacement program - anybody experiencing problems can now have their keyboard replaced for no cost. A similar program was introduced for the Series 2 and Series 3 models of the Apple Watch; warranties were also extended for these models.

Yet, those who own Series 1, 4, and 5 models have been left in the dark (even though they’re experiencing the same issues as everybody else). If you’ve been disappointed and let down by defective Apple Watches, we urge you to get in contact with The Injury Firm today. We know all about the Apple Watch screen design defect and our class-action lawsuit lawyers will help compile your case.

Apple’s Response

What does Apple have to say about the embarrassing situation? As mentioned, it has launched a screen replacement program for those with a model from Series 2 or Series 3. Yet, the class-action lawsuit suggests that Apple knew about the defect. Despite this, it still not only continued to sell devices but often refused to honor the warranty.

According to the lawsuit, Apple received complaints about the issues quickly after the release of every single model. What’s more, Apple concealed defects and continued to sell defective models. Despite all the publicity, Apple has remained quiet on the situation. The company hasn’t made a statement, even after experts revealed the underlying problem to be battery-related.

Essentially, consumers and specialists alike believe that lithium-ion batteries are to blame. As they swell, this puts pressure on the screen thus causing screen cracking and shattering. In some cases, the screen completely detaches from the main body of the watch.

For those with a model from Series 1, Series 4, or Series 5, the only hope you have is claiming on the warranty. This being said, Apple isn’t guaranteed to honor the warranty, and this has left many Apple customers paying hundreds of dollars just to get the problem rectified.

Joining the Apple Watch Class Action Lawsuit

You may be entitled to compensation if the screen cracking problem has affected you. After investing in an Apple Watch, you expect the model to be fit for purpose. This Apple Watch screen design defect puts the device in the category of ‘not fit for purpose’, and this highlights the importance of the class action lawsuit.

While the courts have dismissed some cases, one plaintiff in 2020 withdrew their case and this suggests a private settlement. What’s more, Apple’s attempts to get some cases thrown out of court have been rejected. Therefore, the best way to proceed is to contact The Injury Firm.

Our experienced class action lawsuit lawyers keep up to date with ongoing lawsuits. Therefore, we’ll know the best route for your case. If you’re nervous about class action lawsuits, they’re typically the best option in a case such as this. Considering that repairs cost less than $1,000 in most cases, it doesn’t make sense to file an individual lawsuit against Apple for that amount. Instead, you can have your case considered as part of a much larger class-action lawsuit.

If you were to chase compensation alone without a class-action lawsuit, the cost of getting started alone would surpass the cost of repair. Fortunately, it’s easier and more affordable to file as part of a class-action lawsuit. Your small claim is filed alongside the small claims of others to form one large claim. You’ll share legal costs with all other claimants and The Injury Firm will work alongside others to get the best outcome for you (and all others!).
