Juul Lawsuit Maximizing Results- It's What We Do

Juul Lawsuit Attorneys in Jackson

Exposing the Dangers of E-Cigarettes & Vaping

E-cigarettes have been marketed as a safe alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes. In recent years, it seems that we’re seeing fewer smokers and more e-cigarette users, and this trend has proven dangerous. Teens and young adults are at a particularly high risk of becoming addicted to nicotine through vaping, with manufacturers such as Juul Labs and others releasing sweet and childlike flavors.

‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP is currently investigating claims against Juul and other e-cig manufacturers for downplaying the risks associated with their vaping products. If your child has become addicted to vaping or you are a concerned e-cigarette user yourself, we are standing by to talk to you about your rights and how the at-fault parties can be brought to justice. You could be entitled to financial compensation for the injuries you’ve experienced.

CDC Links Lung Injury Outbreak to E-Cigarette Products

Vaping has been linked to serious lung injuries. On October 10, 2019, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a statement updating the public on the risks associated with vaping, citing 1,299 “confirmed and probable lung injury cases associated with the use of e-cigarette, or vaping, products…” 26 deaths of patients ranging from 17 to 75 years old were confirmed across 21 states.

As of October 29, 2019, the death toll had risen to 37 deaths across 24 states, and a total of 1,888 cases reported to the CDC. The CDC updates this information every Thursday.

What’s in an E-Cigarette?

By heating a liquid compound that contains nicotine and other substances, e-cigarettes produce an aerosol that users inhale. E-cigarettes manufactured by Juul or other companies may contain various chemicals and additives, and these can cause serious harm in users and anyone in the vicinity that inhales the secondhand vapor.

E-cigarettes may contain:

  • Nicotine
  • Flavoring
  • Organic compounds
  • Carcinogens (cancer-causing chemicals)
  • Nickel, tin, lead, and other metals

What Lung Injuries Are Connected with Vaping?

Vaping has been associated with grave injuries, particularly among young users. Nicotine alone, which is present in most e-cigarettes, is known as a highly addictive chemical that can cause birth defects, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of stroke or blood clots. A single Juul pod contains about the same amount of nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes.

Symptoms of a lung injury may include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing
  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Chest pain
  • Headache
  • Dizziness

It is important to seek medical attention and to talk to an attorney about your legal options if you or someone you love has experienced any type of lung injury or adverse effect from vaping.

Juul Labs E-Cigarette Products

Juul Labs is the biggest manufacturer of e-cigarette products, accounting for about 70% of the market. Juul’s vaping devices resemble USB thumb drives and come in a variety of flavors. These and other e-cigarettes have been marketed as a safer alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes, but these claims are under close scrutiny.

Juul executives and various other parties have been questioned by lawmakers in a series of congressional hearings held in October 2019. One such hearing was titled “E-Cigarettes: An Emerging Threat to Public Health.”

Holding Juul Accountable

At ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP, we believe that consumers across the U.S. have the right to accurate information about the products they use. We believe that teenagers should not be enticed into smoking e-cigarettes because they’re flavored, fun, and “safe.” Our Jackson e-cigarette injury attorneys believe in holding negligent manufacturers like Juul accountable for mismarketing their products and putting our youth in danger of suffering from dangerous lung conditions that should have never occurred in the first place.
