Florence E-Cigarettes Lawyer

Electronic cigarettes, commonly referred to as e-cigarettes or vapes, have become a very popular alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes. Unfortunately, there have been a number of incidents involving e-cigarettes that have raised concerns over their safety. Certain types of e-cigarettes have been known to explode, causing blast injuries and burns to users. As with any nicotine product, e-cigarettes have also been found to cause different types of lung diseases. Below, our Florence e-cigarettes lawyer explains how you can claim compensation if you have been hurt.

What are E-Cigarettes?

Manufacturers advertise e-cigarettes as being an alternative to smoking. Some even claim that e-cigarettes are safer than traditional nicotine products, but that is not true. E-cigarettes heat a liquid, known as juice, into a vapor. The juice usually contains flavorings, nicotine, and other additives. The user then inhales the vapor, which is known as vaping. Vaping is particularly popular among young people, even those who are not of the age to purchase nicotine products.

Common E-Cigarette Injuries

E-cigarettes pose a number of health risks that are completely preventable. Regardless of how nicotine is introduced into the body, it is addictive. For young people, it can also interfere with the normal development of the brain. The vapor created by e-cigarettes contains heavy metals, harmful chemicals, and additives associated with severe lung disease. Some of the most common types of injuries caused by e-cigarettes are as follows:

  • Lung injuries: Vaping can cause severe damage to the respiratory system. E-cigarette users have reported a number of symptoms including shortness of breath, coughing, and chest pain. Pulmonary illnesses resulting from e-cigarette use have been reported in many states, including South Carolina.
  • Explosions: E-cigarettes use lithium batteries that are often defective. These batteries overheat and cause explosions and fires. This results in serious injuries including facial trauma, blast injuries, and other catastrophic injuries.
  • Burns: If an e-cigarette explodes, users can suffer second and third-degree burns to the lips, mouth, and face.

Damages Available for E-Cigarette Injuries

If you or someone you love has been harmed by a defective e-cigarette device, you can file a claim against the manufacturer, seller, or distributor to recover compensation for your injuries. These cases are extremely complicated and so, it is important to have a lawyer review the facts of your case before you file. A lawyer will give you the best chance of success with your case so you can recover the following damages:

  • Medical expenses including surgery, emergency room bills, reconstructive plastic surgery,
  • Lost wages and loss of earning capacity, if you cannot return to work right away,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Emotional distress,
  • Funeral and burial expenses, if you have lost a loved one
