Despite their growing popularity as smoking cessation devices, e-cigarettes can also explode, causing injuries to face and mouth.
Compass Law Group, PC, experienced in e-cigarette litigation, offers extensive trial experience in holding e-cigarette manufacturers accountable for defective cartridges. The Los Angeles e-cigarette accidents attorney which takes your case should be reasonably experienced, which our attorneys are.
Although they’re commonly marketed as safe alternatives to smoking cigarettes, electronic cigs have dangers many sellers or manufacturers choose not to disclose. For example, some are being criticized because they emit formaldehyde, even diacetyl. Class actions form quite frequently against the 500+ brands available to consumers today.
With U.S. Fire Administration discovering many explosions occur during recharge, it’s obvious that manufacturers should rework charging ports, right? When the chemicals inside cartridges are flammable, too, it doesn’t matter how they charge because any current pushed into a vape tube could explode the cartridge.
Because these ‘vaping’ products don’t require FDA approval to sell, many companies cut corners to boost profitability. This means poor quality control over cartridges which go inside e-cigarettes, often leading to either too strong of formula put inside cartridges, or just enough toxic substances causing them to explode.
Exploding batteries, toxic chemicals, you name it. Compass Law Group, PC has successfully litigated cases where product liability failed miserably where electronic cigarettes were concerned.
The varying circumstances specific to your e-cigarette claim will dictate what benefits you may be entitled to. We build rather strong cases before approaching opposing attorneys to discuss pre-trial settlement demands. Just know our firm is seeking medical expense payments, pain and suffering, wages lost from time away from work, and whatever else courts may deem proper.
Another way victims of e-cigarette accidents can benefit their families comes from loss of consortium. For example, if an e-cigarette exploded in your pocket and disfigured your genitals, your wife could claim loss of consortium applies because she’ll have to give up her right to intimacy with you.
Regardless what claims arise, our Los Angeles e-cigarette accidents attorney must collect all facts, track down proof of purchase, see manufacturer’s specs in certain cases, and take any witness statements into account. The more information surrounding your e-cigarette accident that we can collect, the better.
We can help replace property damaged by exploding electronic cigarettes, too.
Electronic cigarettes are supposed to be cleaner alternatives to more addictive tar-based cigarettes. What was meant to be another tool to help people quit smoking turned out to be another enemy. Lawyers from coast to coast handle e-cigarette claims daily, with still no FDA mandates in sight.
If you or someone you love became injured due to an exploding e-cigarette, or any other defect related to electronic smoking apparatuses, contact our office immediately.
