Exploding E-Cigarette Injury Lawyer

Car Accident Lawyer Alex R. Hernandez Jr.[/caption]

Exploding e-cigarettes have resulted in burns and scarring for unsuspecting users. If you have been a victim of any such mishap then you may be eligible to file a claim against the vaping battery manufacturer and also the vaping device maker. You can claim justice for pain and suffering, medical costs, loss of earning, deterioration in quality of life, and mental stress.

A vape, or an e-cigarette, is an electronic system for delivering nicotine in the form of vapor. Close to 3 million Americans are into vaping.

Till date, there have been around 150 known cases of e-cigarettes exploding and causing grievous injury. One out of two injuries occurred during charging, while one out of every four happened when the e-cig was being used.

The very first lawsuit regarding injuries caused by e-cigarettes led to an award of damages for the complainant who suffered second-degree burns on the legs and buttocks.

Alex R. Hernandez Jr. can help you get justice for injuries you may have suffered because of a faulty e-cigarette.

BATTERY ISSUES

Batteries that do not meet safety standard and vaping products carrying inadequate warnings are one reason why these explosions happen. Lack of quality control is the chief reason behind accidents involving vapes. Loose batteries kept in trouser pockets can explode when they come in contact with metal such as keys or coins. The use of custom vapes, or mods, increases the chance of explosions if the wrong kind of battery is paired with a vaping device. Explosions can also happen if the batteries are not charged as instructed.

Lithium-ion batteries used in these devices are prone to catching fire and exploding even if they suffer slight damage. Overcharging can lead to overheating and raise the risk of an explosion. The cylindrical design of an e-cigarette can sometimes lead to a situation where the overheated battery is discharged from one end like projectile.

There are different reasons for an e-cigarette exploding; we can assess your case and advise you on the merits in your case.
