Vaping companies, including JUUL, marketed and advertised vaping as a safer alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes, all while allegedly concealing the highly addictive nature of their products’ nicotine levels.
Even worse, it is alleged that the companies purposely attracted young users, hoping to get them addicted to tobacco products.
In Louisiana and every state in our country, Juul products are alleged to have damaged many people’s health as vaping is not a safer alternative to cigarettes.
Can I file a lawsuit against JUUL?
It is completely understandable that consumers want to know if they can sue JUUL. According to Forbes, any adult over 18 or any parent of a child under 18 can sue JUUL under one condition: They must be able to prove the vape-related injuries and health problems are, in fact, due to vaping with a JUUL product.
What were the side effects?
Forbes further explains that the potential health problems linked to JUUL products range from addiction and mental health issues to frightening health side effects like heart attacks and stroke.
In one state, a dozen teens were hospitalized due to the effects of vaping products. Professionals compared the lung damage of these young patients to that exhibited by lifelong smokers.
What are my options?
If you or your child faced hospitalization, or have other proof of your health damages, it is a good idea to contact a lawyer. When companies behave negligently, a potential recourse is using the legal system to make them pay. They are already facing thousands of lawsuits from others in a similar position.
