E-Cigarette Injury

E-cigarettes, also called e-cigs or vapes, turn liquefied nicotine solutions into inhalable vapor using high-powered lithium-ion batteries. Vape devices and accessories have turned into a huge industry producing $7 billion in annual sales.

What many of the 2.5 million American e-cig users don’t know is that the batteries attached to the devices can explode, causing serious and permanent injury. If you or someone you love were injured or disfigured by a vape explosion or fire, you may be entitled to compensation. Our product liability lawyers have experience helping injury victims take on big corporations, and we’re ready to help you get started today.

Vape Battery Fires and Explosions

Vape manufacturers aren’t required to add consumer warnings to product packaging, and e-cigarettes and accessories aren’t required to undergo safety testing before being made available for purchase.

This may put people who vape in danger, as the lithium-ion polymer batteries that power the devices may be prone to failure. The batteries have a cylindrical shape, like the barrel of a gun. The ends of the battery—the weakest point of the structure—can rupture, releasing pressure strong enough to shoot fragments across a room.

Battery failures and explosions can happen at any time, including while devices are unattended or charging, which can increase the risk of a house fire.
