E-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems have been in the news a lot lately as injuries and deaths related to vaping products continue to mount across the country. JUUL, the most popular vaping product, has long been marketed as a safer alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes or a way that smokers can slowly transition to a nicotine-free lifestyle. The truth is that there is no such thing as a completely safe nicotine product. Besides being unsafe, JUUL has become the product of choice for teenagers who enjoy flavors such as watermelon and strawberry milk.
If you or your child has become addicted to JUUL our attorneys at Roberts & Harris can help you pursue financial compensation through a personal injury claim for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
“What’s a JUUL?”
JUUL is a brand of electronic cigarette that looks like a flash drive. Unfortunately, it has become popular with teens and under-21 smokers who get hooked in a flash after being drawn to the vaping product by its sweet and fruity flavors.
Despite being marketed as a safe alternative to cigarettes or a way to help transition smokers away from cigarettes, there’s no such thing as a safe way to ingest nicotine into the body. Using JUUL exposes users to hundreds of chemicals and there is a risk of nicotine poisoning due to JUUL pods having a higher nicotine concentration than traditional tobacco cigarettes. Other additives such as Vitamin E may become harmful to the lungs when inhaled during the vaping process.
Users of vaping products such as JUUL have reported injuries and complications such as breathing problems, chest pain, nausea and persistent coughing.
