JUUL® E-Cigarette Injury
The FDA has warned that JUUL® wrongfully promoted their e-cigarettes as the “healthy smoking option” and as “safe” without disclosing the risks and dangers of product use to the public. As a result, individuals are fighting addiction and being hospitalized, many of which are minors. Every day, more and more vaping injuries are coming to light, and we are working to hold JUUL® accountable.
If you or a loved one have used a JUUL® e-cigarette and developed a life-threatening health issue, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Rainwater, Holt & Sexton for a case evaluation – free of charge.
The Appeal of JUUL® E-Cigarettes
JUUL® e-cigarettes, also known as vapes, are designed to mimic the cigarette experience and are marketed as an alternative smoking method to help tobacco smokers quit traditional manners. Users are unaware that JUUL®’s still contain nicotine and that nicotine-bloodstream levels are expected to be higher with vape use – each pod equating to a pack of 20 cigarettes.
Users are misguided not only by messaging, but through a different smoking experience. The JUUL® pods plug into the top of the reusable and rechargeable JUUL® e-cigarette device, and can be easily swapped out. The JUUL® devices vaporize a liquid nicotine through a battery powered heating element, delivering nicotine in a non-combustible manner without smoke, ash, odor and a lit flame. JUUL® sells their nicotine liquid in JUUL® Pods which are offered in a variety of different flavors such as grape, strawberry milk, cappuccino and mint.
Sales of JUUL® products encompass nearly 70% of the e-cigarette market, gaining popularity among minors and young adults. E-cigarette use is now an epidemic, and JUUL® products have the potential to do significant harm to your health without your knowledge.
