Am I Eligible for a Juul Lawsuit?

juul e cigarett nicotine vapor dispenser box and juulpodE-cigarettes have long boasted that they offer a healthy alternative to smoking cigarettes. But are they really safer? There are some significant side effects of vaping that many people don’t even realize including becoming addicted to nicotine or not getting over your nicotine addiction as you intended when making the switch to vaping. If this is the case for you, you need the help of Juul addiction lawyers to fight your case for you. By reading on, you can learn more about the Juul lawsuit and how mass tort litigation lawyers can help you receive the compensation that you deserve.

About the Juul Lawsuit

There are actually several different lawsuits against Juul, all claiming different things. In this section, you can get a closer look at some of these claims to better understand the various lawsuits.

Marketing to Teens/Youths

Juul often featured younger people in their early ads to promote their products. The claim is that they intended these ads to attract younger users, a claim that the company denies. They have since changed their marketing tactics, but only after they were caught actively promoting their product to youth audiences. This unethical tactic used by Juul has negatively impacted teens, creating potentially life-long consequences for the youth who used their products.

There’s also pending wrongful death lawsuits that were filed as a result of younger victims dying of health issues caused by vaping.

High Nicotine Content

Juul pods have higher nicotine content in them when compared to other e-cigarettes on the market in the United States. One of the reasons why this is the case is because Juul e-cigarettes contain protonated nicotine. This means that the user is able to absorb much higher concentrations of nicotine than they would from free-base nicotine.

The problem with this is that there have been reports of people suffering from seizures when using Juul. Seizures can be a sign of nicotine toxicity, especially in youth who are unaware of the dangers that Juul brings with the higher nicotine content. Juul does not offer pods without nicotine, unlike other e-cigarette brands.

In addition to seizures, there have also been reports of other neurological issues and strokes as a result of using Juul.

Significant Breathing Issues

Vape fluids contain chemicals that are linked to an EVALI outbreak, which led to hospitalizations and significant lung damage in users. In early 2020, there are a confirmed 68 deaths and nearly 3,000 hospitalizations caused by this outbreak.

Health Issues Caused by Using this Product

Everyone knows by now just how dangerous smoking cigarettes can be for their health, even if that doesn’t deter them from smoking still. That’s one of the reasons why vaping has become so popular. However, despite being marketed as a healthier and safer alternative to smoking, Juul still has nicotine in its products. This means that it can still have a significant impact on your health. Some health effects that users may suffer from include:

  • Emphysema
  • Respiratory problems
  • Certain cancers including breast, pancreatic, and lung
  • Kidney disease
  • Addiction
  • Reproductive issues
  • Macular degeneration (vision loss and cataracts)
  • GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)
  • Coronary artery disease

Filing a Lawsuit

There have been not only issues where someone suffered from a health problem after vaping, but there is the risk of accidentally swallowing the liquid in the vape pod. The potential for serious lung conditions and other health problems can have a significant impact on your health and your quality of life. The medical bills that you may incur could be financially crippling. That’s why those who have suffered damages as a result of vaping using Juul products may be eligible for compensation.

If you have been diagnosed with a serious lung condition, seizures, strokes, or addition after using Juul products, you may be able to file a claim for product liability against the manufacturer. Should you decide that you want to move forward with this lawsuit, it is recommended that you save the Juul vaping device as well as any vaping pods/fluids that you can. It’s also important that you document how long you have been using these products, how often you use these products on a daily basis, and how many pods you use daily.

You should get a lawyer involved in the process as soon as possible. First of all, the sooner that they get started on the case, the sooner you can receive compensation. This is also because you want to make sure that you have a valid claim against the company. Lawyers are essential in cases like this because it can be very hard to prove your case without an experienced attorney fighting by your side. You can expect a free consultation so that the lawyer can look over your case and see if you have a valid claim, which means there’s no reason to wait any longer.

You need a lawyer on your side because these cases can be extremely complex. They have the knowledge, experience, and resources necessary to improve the outcomes for your case. They will talk to you about the different injuries that you may be suffering from, or that your loved one is suffering from. You should include any evidence that you can including medical records and the saved vaping products so that the lawyer can properly look over your case.

Some questions that a lawyer may ask before getting started include:

  • How often do you vape?
  • When was the last time that you vaped?
  • How have these injuries impacted your life?
  • Have you tried to quit?
  • Was your child exposed to any advertising from Juul on social media?
