JUUL and Vaping Lawsuits
Vaping and e-cigarettes burst upon the scene several years ago with too little research and consideration of the potential dangers of using these devices. Some proved defective in their construction, with battery fires resulting. Other dangers are posed by the very chemicals that the devices are intended to deliver to their users. As a result, lawsuits against JUUL are moving forward and against other makers of these devices. JUUL, however, is the largest producer of these devices, and therefore the primary target of litigation. Some of the litigation is targeted at defects in products that do not function as intended. Other litigation focuses on products that function exactly as intended – addicting adults and children to nicotine.
