If You Suffered Harm from Using JUUL, You May Qualify to Bring a Lawsuit Today.
The U.S. Surgeon General has said there is an “e-cigarette epidemic among youth.”
It is well known that there has been a rapid increase in e-cigarette use among teens and young adults. Many people with no previous smoking experience, including teens, were led to believe that Juul was a “safer alternative to smoking”; however, they are now finding themselves addicted to Juul and are now suffering serious health problems.
WHAT IS JUUL?
Juul, is a popular USB-shaped e-cigarette that has dominated the market. Its sleek marketing, concealable shape, and variety of fruit flavors made it an attractive choice for teen and young adult smokers.
It’s manufacturer, Juul Labs, claims that their product is a safer alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes; however, recent studies and research show that Juul and other e-cigarettes actually expose their users to a wide range of health risks similar to cigarettes.
Many young adults and their parents claim they were unaware of the side effects of vaping, or that the vape fluids contained high levels of nicotine, a highly addictive substance, and, as a result of using the product – they have now become addicted.
Hundreds of people are now suing Juul Labs to hold them accountable for their negligent and false marketing, and failure to warn of their product’s dangers. Juul Labs Inc. sells about 75 percent of the e-cigarettes in the United States.
