Electronic cigarettes – sometimes referred to as vape pens, mods, e-cigs, and tank systems – were marketed as a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes. Recently, these products have been linked to thousands of cases involving people who have suffered serious health problems – or sometimes even death – due to vaping. Many e-cigarettes contain potentially dangerous additives, like vitamin E acetate and diacetyl, which can be highly toxic and cause inflammation when vaporized. Common health problems associated with e-cigarette vaping include:
- Bronchiolitis obliterans (aka popcorn lung)
- Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP)
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Heart attack
- Respiratory failure
- Collapsed lung
- Death due to any of the above
Nicotine addiction (the U.S. Surgeon General says a common JUUL pod contains about the same amount of nicotine as a whole pack of cigarettes)
If you vape with a JUUL product, or any other type of e-cigarettes, and have experienced any of the above health problems, our dedicated legal team can listen to you, answer your questions, explain your legal options, and help you get maximum compensation for your damages.
Why are e-cigarettes dangerous?
E-cigarettes have been linked to serious health problems in teens and adults due to the hazardous and potentially toxic ingredients they contain. Along with highly addictive nicotine, many e-cigarettes have other potentially harmful ingredients such as:
- Diacetyl, which has been linked to lung disease
- Nickel, tin, lead, and other heavy metals
- Ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs
- Volatile organic compounds
While the health risks associated with vaping have been documented, another concern is how addictive JUUL and other e-cigarettes are to teens. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, millions of teens across the nation use vaping products. Because their brains are still developing, adolescents are more easily addicted to nicotine than adults. This puts young people at a greater risk of developing health problems associated with vaping and e-cigarettes.
Additionally, there have been cases of people getting seriously injured after their e-cigarette batteries caused a fire or explosion.
What are the common side effects of vaping with e-cigarettes?
E-cigarettes can contain multiple different substances, including nicotine, THC, and synthetic cannabinoids. Common symptoms that could indicate a serious health problem due to vaping include:
- Sharp pain in the lungs after vaping
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Chronic coughing
- Throat irritation
- Nausea / Vomiting
