Common Injuries and Health Conditions Caused by JUUL E-Cigarettes

Common Injuries and Health Conditions Caused by JUUL E-Cigarettes

Many people switched to e-cigarettes in part because the manufacturers claimed that vaping was safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. However, no evidence shows that e-cigarettes are any safer than traditional cigarettes. 

An e-cigarette heats liquid by using a battery to create a vapor that the user inhales. The liquid (referred to as “juice”) contains nicotine, flavoring, and other additives. The sleek USB design and the fruity flavors made JUUL a popular choice for adults and young people. 

However, recent JUUL lawsuits have alleged a link between the use of the product and several adverse health conditions. For example, popcorn lung has been linked to the chemical diacetyl, which is used in e-cigarette flavorings. Popcorn lung (bronchiolitis obliterans) is an irreversible respiratory impairment with no known cure.

Other adverse health conditions linked to JUUL products include, but are not limited to:

  • Nicotine addiction
  • Lung disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Seizures in young adults
  • Birth defects or pregnancy complications
  • Respiratory failure
  • Heart attack and heart problems
  • Stroke
  • Behavioral and mental health issues
  • Suicidal thoughts or attempts 

Further research may reveal other health conditions associated with the use of JUUL and other e-cigarettes. As more people report adverse conditions associated with JUUL products, the number of potential health conditions could increase. 

Why Are People Filing JUUL Lawsuits?

Lawsuits against the manufacturer of JUUL products allege that e-cigarettes cause injuries and harm. Adult users and parents of minor children are filing product liability lawsuits against JUUL. The latter lawsuits allege the minors suffered from addiction and sustained other injuries. 

Some lawsuits allege dangerous marketing and advertising for e-cigarettes. For example, they allege that the makers of JUUL failed to provide warnings of potential risks associated with e-cigarette use. Some lawsuits allege the company targeted its marketing toward young people, resulting in addiction and physical harm to minors.

Additionally, there have been lawsuits alleging that defective lithium-ion batteries in some e-cigarettes have led to serious personal injuries. In some cases, the batteries have exploded or caught fire, causing eye/face injuries, severe burns, mouth injuries, and wrongful death. 

Compensation is Available for JUUL Injuries and Damages

You or your child could be entitled to compensation for injuries and damages caused by using JUUL e-cigarettes. JUUL Labs can be held accountable for negligence, product liability, and other conduct that injured or placed consumers at risk of adverse health conditions. 

The best way to know whether you have a claim against JUUL Labs for damages is to speak with our Boston JUUL injury lawyers. You could be entitled to compensation for economic damages, such as lost wages and medical bills. You could also be entitled to non-economic damages, including pain, suffering, and permanent impairments.
