Leaving out any discussion about the impact on your health, e-cigarettes are making news not because of their popularity or somewhat healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes but because they are seriously injuring (and one death) their users. In this blog, we take a look at the how and why e-cigs and vaping are just so dangerous and what you can do about it. If you have been seriously injured by one of these items, do not hesitate to get in touch with Walch Law today to discuss your case further.
Why are e-cigs injuring so many? Here are the top two things that inform this answer:
- Cheap: Cheap to buy means that they were also cheap to make. This multi-billion dollar industry actually has most of the products (including the dangerous technology) made in China where it is cheap partly because there are very few safety regulations. While the various manufactures of e-cigs and vaping pens can pass the savings onto you, they also pass along the lack of safety regulations.
- Location: The source of e-cig injuries is the explosion that occurs when the item is in use. The cheap lithium battery not only explodes but it also often sprays out toxic battery acid as well. These explosions almost always occur when the item is being used meaning that the very delicate face and eyes are most injured.
The nature of the injuries combined with the usual facial location have left thousands of people dealing with injuries such as serious burns, missing teeth and facial fractures. Because so many people enjoy smoking while driving (anything to ease that LA traffic), the explosions have also resulted in numerous car accidents as a user can understandably not control his or her vehicle while being seriously injured in this manner. These injuries can be life-changing and expensive which is why you should get in touch with Walch Law to file a personal injury lawsuit. You can recover for your injuries, the impact they have had on your personal and professional life and much more. Do not miss this important opportunity to get compensated for your injuries.
