JUUL Injuries

JUUL e-cigarettes have a lot of dangerous side effects that consumers are not warned about. These vaping pods actually contain a much higher level of nicotine which means there is also a much larger risk for addiction. These pods actually are a modified form of liquid nicotine that contains a higher concentration of Cotinine. This is a chemical that allows for the nicotine to be absorbed more efficiently during inhalation.

Some of the side effects of JUUL e-cigarettes can cause serious health problems and physical injury that include, but are not limited to:

  • Nicotine poisoning
  • Seizures
  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • Heart problems
  • Lung & respiratory problems
  • Pneumonia
  • Asthma
  • Mental health
  • Behavior problems
  • Suicide

Along with the side effects from addiction to these products, there are also a risk for injury through e-cigarette battery explosion. These devices have been known to explode randomly at any time. They have exploded while charging, vaping, or just in people’s pockets. This factor falls under product liability and can cause serious injuries that include burns, finger amputations, fires, and disfigurement of body parts.

JUUL Injury Lawsuit

Because vape pens and e-cigarettes have been increasing in popularity among teens and young adults, there is a lot of concern about the companies marketing actions. They have been aiming their product towards younger generations and previous non-smokers by providing flavors that taste like candy and designing them to not look like a cigarette. According to the FDA, the use of e-cigarettes by high school students increased by 20 percent just from 2017 to 2018.

Throughout this marketing strategy, the companies failed to provide information about the high risk of health effects due to the higher levels of nicotine. Because of this, most teens and people that use JUUL’s actually believe that they are not addictive at all and that they have much less of a health risk than traditional cigarettes that contain tobacco.

I highly recommend M&K, not only was the settlement much more than I anticipated, it was a pleasure to work with Pete and his staff. He is professional, polite and straightforward.
