Los Angeles

If it seems like e-cigarettes are everywhere, that’s because they are. Vaping has exploded in popularity, particularly among younger Americans. However, data now shows that e-cigarettes are not as safe as the manufacturers have told us. Vaping can lead to serious injuries and illnesses. If you or a loved one have been harmed by vaping, JML Law is here to help. Our Los Angeles e-cigarette attorneys are ready to step in and help secure the compensation you deserve. Let us investigate your case today.

What are the dangers posed by e-cigarettes?

The public was generally unaware of the health risks posed by e-cigarettes until thousands of vape-related illnesses were reported in August and September 2019. Now, multiple federal agencies are investigating these products that were once touted as being safer alternatives to traditional cigarettes. The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is keeping track of the number of illnesses and fatalities related to vaping.

Doctors and other healthcare providers have reported a range of symptoms in those who have become ill after vaping, including:

  1. Breathing difficulty
  2. Shortness of breath
  3. Chest pain
  4. Vomiting
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Fever
  7. Fatigue

These products are highly addictive

These products have been designed to contain high levels of nicotine. When you buy a vape product, you can get a nicotine solution ranging anywhere from 2.4% to 5% or more. According to information right from the Juul website, one Juul pod (the nicotine solution) contains the same amount of nicotine you can find in 20 traditional cigarettes.

Juul and other e-cigarette companies have also used flavored solutions that are particularly enticing to younger children. Some of the flavors used have included:

  1. Strawberry watermelon
  2. Blue raspberry
  3. Pink lemonade
  4. Bubble gum
  5. Mint
  6. Cotton candy
  7. Other fruit flavors

The CDC has reported the 81% of youth e-cigarette users cited the availability of these flavors as the primary reason they use them. Teens as young as 12 and 13 have become ill due to vape products. The person to die due to vaping so far was 17 years old.

The most popular brands on the market

Juul e-cigarette products and Blu E-Cigs are the most recognized brands in stores and online, but there are many others, including:

  1. NJOY
  2. Om Vapors
  3. Green Smoke
  4. KangerTech
  5. Morpheus E-Cigs
  6. Mig 21 Clear Fusion
  7. VaporFi VAIO
  8. Joyetech
