If you or a loved one has suffered from health problems related to vape pen use, you may be eligible to file a vape problems lawsuit against the manufacturer. JUUL child addiction lawsuits and vape pen popcorn lung claims allow persons and families harmed by JUUL vape pen side effects to seek compensation for the medical expenses, pain and suffering that have resulted from this dangerous device.
First released in the United States in 2007, e-cigarettes only came under FDA regulation in 2016. Little is known about the long-term impacts of vaping, but some clear vape problems have emerged. Both the U.S. Surgeon General and the FDA have been highly critical of JUUL for its approach to marketing, which establishes "juuling" as hip and cool. The number of youth and teen users has skyrocketed, with many vapers unaware that e-cigarettes contain nicotine. Families of underage users may be eligible to file a JUUL child addiction lawsuit against the manufacturer for its unethical marketing practices.
Respiratory problems are another side effect that has emerged. Because there is no smoke involved, many users mistakenly assume vaping is not harmful to the lungs. Persons having suffered from popcorn lung or another respiratory problem from vaping may be eligible to file a JUUL popcorn lung lawsuit.
Another unexpected danger of e-cigarette use is seizures resulting from nicotine poisoning. JUUL vape pens deliver three times the amount of nicotine permitted in the E.U. (and JUUL is not available in the E.U. due to this danger). The danger of JUUL seizures is currently under FDA investigation following numerous reports over the past decade.
Critics say JUUL and other vape pen companies had a duty to warn consumers of the risks associated with vape pens. Instead, vape pen manufacturers developed designs and flavors that appeal to kids (cotton candy, for example) and left out key warning information. Vaping has skyrocketed in recent years, with more than 20 million Americans now using vape pens, among them 20% of high school seniors. Meanwhile, adult users attempting to quit smoking aided by e-cigarettes have been harmed in vape pen accidents developed popcorn lung. The vaping industry is expected to exceed $86 billion by 2025; JUUL consistently leads the way with a 70% market share.
