JUUL & E-Cigarettes
The growing dangers of the vaping epidemic.
The attorneys at Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz are investigating claims relating to the e-cigarette JUUL, particularly on behalf of individuals who began using JUUL under the age of 26. From nicotine addiction to other injuries such as chronic lung inflammation and seizures, we are disturbed by impact this product is having on children and teenagers.
JUUL e-cigarettes have been linked to a number of serious problems, including reports of
- Nicotine addiction
- Heart attack or myocardial infarction
- Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis
- Severe Asthma
- Behavioral problems
- Wrongful Death
Vaping is not the benign habit the industry wants you to believe.
JUUL and e-cigarette use, especially among children and teens, has become an epidemic both in our community and nationwide. The e-cigarette JUUL is said to be a smoking “cessation” device for adults, but its growing popularity among children and teenagers, and the company’s marketing tactics and fruity flavors targeted to younger users, has made it a smoking “initiation” device for children and teens. Tobacco use among children has skyrocketed, especially in our community.
If you or a loved one used JUUL under the age of 26 and became addicted to nicotine or developed other injuries, contact us today. There is never a fee unless we recover compensation for you.
