Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating hoverboard lawsuit claims that hoverboards may be prone to self-combustion or short-circuiting during charges, and even during ordinary use. As evidenced in the video clip below, as well as in a recent Newsweek article, hoverboards have been shown to burst into flames without warning, posing a risk of serious personal injury and property damage.
The most recent hoverboard fire broke out in a Humble, Texas mall on Monday, December 28, 2015. Firefighters responding to this explosion have reported that the hoverboard caught fire while in its original packaging. One patron of the mall said that the hoverboard explosion sounded like a bomb.
As a result of these recurring problems, most hoverboards have now been banned from Amazon:
