Were You Injured By An E-Cigarette?
In recent years, e-cigarettes, or vapes, have taken off in popularity. Because they produce less secondhand smoke, many people view them as a better alternative to traditional cigarettes. Some users are trying to wean themselves off of paper cigarettes. Others simply enjoy the experience. Regardless, if you are an e-cigarette smoker, you deserve to trust that the products you use are safe.
Unfortunately, some e-cigarette manufacturers do not adhere to safety protocols the way they should. The results can be extremely dangerous — including explosions or catching fire. One of the most common problems with e-cigarettes is when the battery overheats during charging, which is called thermal runaway. Malfunctions like these can cause significant injury or property damage.
Product manufacturers have an obligation to make safe goods, and e-cigarettes are no exception. If you have been injured by an e-cigarette, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you suffered.
