Sumter E-Cigarette Lawyer

Tobacco and other companies promise that e-cigarettes are a safe alternative to combustion cigarettes. When companies, and people, break their promises, a Sumter E-Cigarette lawyer from the Stanley Law Group holds these defendants responsible for the injuries they cause.

The reckless manufacture and marketing of e-cigarettes is an example of the reckless pursuit of profits, and the victims these approaches usually claim. Despite what TV commercials state, large companies care nothing about people. They only care about their bottom lines.

The product’s name, E-Cigarette, is a good example. Most people associate E-Cigarettes with e-mail, e-commerce, and other activities that are very convenient and almost completely harmless. As outlined below. E-Cigarettes are convenient, so the companies could sell more items. However, they are not safe, by any stretch of the imagination.

Sumter E-Cigarettes Lawyers and Defective Product Claims

Most E-Cigarettes are little more than batteries wrapped in plastic. Therefore, the risk of overheating, and even explosion, is very high.

Larger E-Cigarettes, like Kangers, are especially risky. These objects are about the size of a fountain pen or small tape recorder. Even more significantly for tort law purposes, they have powerful lithium ion batteries which burn at up to 50W.

After just a few minutes of continuous use, the battery begins to overheat, and the uninsulated housing simply cannot absorb that heat. As a result, Kanger E-Cigarettes are prone to explosion, either while in a person’s mouth or while in a purse or pocket. Even worse, some models eject overheated batteries in such situations, turning them into dangerous projectiles.

Furthermore, Kanger E-Cigarettes are customizable, allowing the user to set the parameters for usage, charge the devices with different battery chargers, and so on. As these e-cigarettes contain no adequate safety warnings or usage instructions, customers might inadvertently transform safe products into dangerous ones.

These risks are not limited to one make or model. Most E-Cigarettes contain imported parts, mostly from China. Frequently, these parts are defective, or they do not work together the way they should.

The manufacturer is strictly liable for damages in this area. Usually, the manufacturer cannot blame users or parts manufacturers for personal injuries.

Unsafe Marketing

Many E-Cigarette companies, such as Juul, originally sold flavored canisters with names that appealed to children, like strawberry pie and chocolate pudding. Under extreme pressure from the government and safety advocates, Juul reluctantly agreed to scale back this practice.

That agreement helped ensure the safety of children in the future. But it did almost nothing to assist the victims who were already injured. It also did practically nothing to compensate these victims.

Many E-Cigarette canisters contain high levels of very dangerous chemicals. These chemicals are especially harmful to children. However, rather than make weaker canisters that were safer, these companies made stronger chemicals that were more expensive and more dangerous. These chemicals often cause long-term damage to the mind and body, especially if the mind and body is still developing.

Personal protection is the most important reason to file an injury lawsuit. Most large companies only speak one language. Only an eye-popping amount of damages gets their attention and forces them to change the way they do business.

Furthermore, E-Cigarette and other defective product victims have immediate needs. They have bills to pay and they must pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Only financial compensation addresses these needs.
