Injuries Caused by Defective E-Cigarettes

The typical e-cigarette uses a lithium battery to heat tinctures into vapor that is then “smoked” by the user. Due to a general lack of safety and manufacturing standards, some of these lithium batteries can rapidly overheat without any warning. The result may be a fireball or explosion that sends metal shrapnel flying outward.

People injured by e-cigarette explosions have suffered:

  • Lacerations
  • Facial disfiguration
  • Serious burns
  • Cracked or missing teeth

Product liability laws state that the manufacturer could be found completely liable for damages if an unacceptable product defect is the cause of the injuries. Part of a product liability case requires the plaintiff to identify what sort of defect led to the catastrophic product failure. In terms of e-cigarettes, it is a defective design – the batteries should never have been used in the first place without thorough testing – that is causing the failures.

Learn Your Rights, Make Your Case

Every consumer has the right to assume that they will not be seriously injured while using a product regularly and without tampering. E-cigarettes are not an exception, as some have speculated. Take this time to contact our Salisbury personal injury attorney to discuss how you can form a case and seek compensation for your injuries. You can even start with a completely free consultation so you do not need to worry about spending anything out of pocket upfront.
