JUUL Lawsuit Claims E-Cigarette Product Caused Heart and Lung Injuries
E-cigarettes, more commonly known as “vaping,” have been increasingly popular over the years and is often marketed as the safer alternative to cigarettes or other tobacco products. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared on October 22, 2019, that around 1,604 cases of lung injuries were reported to have been caused by e-cigarette products, including 34 confirmed deaths. With this new information circulating, numerous JUUL lawsuits have been filed.
The reports include both THC and nicotine products, but CDC has noted a higher percentage of lung injuries among those using THC products.
JUUL e-cigarettes use JUUL pods and are small, discrete, handheld electronic devices that dispense nicotine. These are sold in several flavors including mango, fruit medley, and crème Brulee. It gained popularity in school settings, as the JUUL is easy to hide, simple to use, and easy to purchase through online and retail stores frequented by underage buyers.
Yale recently released a study that found JUUL pods to include toxic compounds and chemicals unlisted by the manufacturer such as odorless alcoholic solvents. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in 2018 reported: “conclusive evidence that in addition to nicotine, most e-cigarette products contain and emit numerous potentially toxic substances.” Some of the toxins and chemicals discovered in JUUL can lead to lung or cardiovascular disease.
