Have You Been Injured By A Juul E-Cig? Over 700 Lawsuits Already Filed
Juul is a popular E-cig brand that sells electronic cigarettes/vaping devices. They’re extremely popular, especially among young people.
But as it turns out, they may also be extremely dangerous.
Not long ago, I was at a club. I was sitting at my booth, just watching people dance, when this very young girl (obviously very drunk) walked up to me. She had an ‘M’ marked on her hand (which meant that she was under the drinking age of 21), and she was acting really ‘out of it.’
“Do you mind if I hit your Juul again?” she asked me.
I was a bit confused, as I had never seen her before.
“I don’t have a Juul,” I responded.
Again, she acted spacy, almost like she didn’t know what was going on.
“What? You don’t have a Juul?” she responded, and then walked away.
This wasn’t the first time that I’d heard about these new, and very popular devices, though. Almost everyone I meet under the age of 23 has a Juul.
But as it turns out, they may be dangerous.
To date, there have been over 700 lawsuits filed in the United States against the E-cig company.
According to the lawsuits, the products cause health problems. But the company has also been accused of marketing to minors.
They’ve even had a wrongful death lawsuit filed against them.
Here’s what you need to know.
Do Juul Devices Cause Injury?
As it turns out, you may be able to join a lawsuit against Juul if you experienced an injury while using the device.
According to reports, E-cig users who have been injured while using the devices have suffered from seizures, serious lung diseases, and even strokes.
There are also claims that the people who bought and used these products were unaware of the ‘high levels’ of nicotine contained within them.
At this point, the lawsuits are still pending. But there is still plenty of time to contact a lawyer if you think you may have suffered an injury as a result of using a Juul product.
Just don’t wait too long. The window may close at any time.
Did Juul Market To Minors?
According to some of the E-cig lawsuits pending against Juul, it is alleged that they marketed their products in such a manner as to attract minors.
They have also been accused of promoting nicotine use, failing to warn that their nicotine products are potent and addictive, and selling products that are ‘defective and unreasonably dangerous.’
Obviously, the lawsuits are still pending. But if you feel that you’ve been a victim or suffered wrongdoing as a result of using a Juul product, now is the time to contact an attorney.
You may be entitled to substantial financial compensation.
How To Get Started With Your Claim
The best way to get started is to reach out and contact an attorney who is specialized in E-cig litigation.
Contrary to popular belief, this isn’t a complicated process… and all you need to do is reach out with the details of your case to see if you may have a claim.
Your lawyer can advise you about the next steps you should take to get your claim in motion.
Does It Cost Anything To Talk To A Lawyer?
No. Most lawyers practicing in this type of litigation work on a ‘contingency fee basis.’
This means that you only pay if you win your case.
If you’ve been injured by a Juul, you may qualify for substantial financial compensation.
The only way to know for sure is to reach out and contact an E-cig litigation specialist as soon as possible.
