Posted in: Class Actions
Our Ohio e-cigarette attorneys are here for you and your family.
Many Ohioans, a lot of them teenagers, were initially led to believe that vaping was a safer alternative to smoking. In reality, Juul and other e-cigarette companies use tactics such as intentionally marketing fruity flavors to attract young users or failing to warn their products were more potent than traditional nicotine products and were unreasonably dangerous.
This deception led to staggering addiction and serious physical injuries, like seizures, lung damage, and strokes. Many who are suffering are taking legal action against Juul Labs, the manufacturer of Juuls and the Juul pods, and their parent company, Altria Group. And if you are among them, you may have a right to financial compensation.
Several legal actions are being pursued on behalf of those who became addicted or harmed, and Kisling, Nestico & Redick is ready to help. Call us today and let us explain your options and fight for everything you are entitled to.
Using e-cigarettes like JUUL and other vaping devices can result in addiction, nicotine poisoning, and lung disease – commonly called “popcorn lung.”
Juuls and other e-cigs hit the market as a small device, with a ‘Juul pod’ containing the same amount of nicotine as a pack of traditional cigarettes, but at a higher concentration. This increases the likelihood of addiction, particularly in younger users.
At such high doses, there have been several reports of JUUL users suffering from nicotine poisoning.
Symptoms of nicotine poisoning include:
The chemical additives in vapes also cause a serious lung condition commonly known as “popcorn lung.” Symptoms include coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath, similar to obstructive pulmonary disease.
Juul pods and other vape juices originally came in assorted flavors like mint, fruit punch, and mango and include chemicals like propylene glycol, diacetyl, formaldehyde (embalming fluid), toluene, and glycerin – all known to be carcinogenic.
When heated, Juul and e-cig batteries can also produce metal particles like cadmium, chromium, lead, manganese, and nickel, which may become lodged in lung tissue.
No two cases are the same, but you deserve the chance to recover financially from your losses.
Your potential compensation may include your past & future medical expenses, lost income, pain & suffering, mental anguish, punitive damages, and wrongful death damages.
