Vaping injuries are becoming more common as e-cigarette companies become more popular. If you get injured by vaping devices, you may be able to sue the manufacturer of your device or the company that sold it to you.

Common vaping injuries

One of the most common injuries that vaping enthusiasts experience is lung injuries. JUUL, for instance, has been linked to a lung injury known as popcorn lung. Popcorn lung is typically caused by diacetyl vapors – many e-liquid contain up to 45 mg of diacetyl per pod, which is enough to cause the injury.

Another type of injury that vape users experience is nicotine poisoning. There are pods that contain large amounts of nicotine – actually more than a pack of cigarettes in some cases. As such, many vaping products have been linked to seizures, strokes and heart attacks caused by excessive exposure to the chemical. Lastly, vaping devices can cause explosions. These explosions can cause serious burns and lacerations.

Suing for vaping injuries

In the recent past, there have been many JUUL lawsuits filed by people who have suffered from JUUL device-related lung injuries. Many of these lawsuits have been successful in securing damages from JUUL. Therefore, if you have suffered from JUUL-related injuries, you should consider filing a JUUL lawsuit.

If you have experienced any injuries as a result of using a vaping device, you can file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of that device. You can also file a lawsuit against the store where you purchased the device if they failed to warn you of the risks associated with using it.

It is important to note, however, that not everyone who suffers from a vaping injury will be able to sue. In order to have a valid claim, you must be able to prove that the device or product caused the injury and that it was not your fault.

If you are considering filing a lawsuit, it is important to understand the steps you need to take. Just remember that how you approach such lawsuits or claims will depend on the specific facts of your situation.
